Re: Time for a major change

Daniel: We appreciate the message board tremendously. It has helped us in our two (soon to be three) long term visits to La Manz. We've found it a good way to get information about the state of affairs in La Manz and to be informed about the people; both gringos and Mexicanos.

If you remember last winter we tried to sort out what to do about that guy who was trying to clean up the town - the cop. I think the message board was valuable in informing everyone and in getting a discussion going about how to handle things.

I feel for you, Daniel. I sort of moderated a board for about 6 months years ago, and I just got totally stressed by different demands and expectations. You have the people who want structure and the people who want a free for all, and you have quite a few in between. Doesn't matter the board, the stresses on the moderator are legion....seriously.

So good luck sorting through all of this, and let us keep the board even if it does take away some of those freedoms. There are infrequent times when those freedoms make La Manz. seem like a pretty nasty place, and then there are times when everyone seems lovely. Fortunately, so far, mostly the posters help to make it seem a good place, with a great variety of friendly voices.

Cheers, Vicki and Robin
