All it takes to get discussions going on this or any other board is for somebody to post here or there. I get a ton of information in my e-mail (when it’s working) that are appropriate for the Invisible Warriors Board, the Random Factor Board or the Doing Without Board. I don’t know why they aren’t posted there. I can only guess.
If you look in the archives you will see times where there were discussions on boards other than Iago. Until a few months ago when I changed servers there were so many problems with my old server (not being able to post/posts disappearing, etc.) that I think some people gave up on trying to post on board other than Iago except when the Iago board wasn’t working. Other people never even look on the other boards unless someone directs them to.
I also believe that many people are afraid that if they post on the other boards nobody will join them because so much of the action seems to be on the Iago Board. They simply note “Off Topic” and go from there. Nothing is off topic on the Doing Without Board.
Another thing you will find is a solid wall of partisanship on the Invisible Warriors board and the Random Factor board that nobody has been able to breach. The posts become so predictable that you only need to know who is posting to have a good idea of what is going to be said. If you want dirt on Clinton, you know who is going to dish it out. If you want dirt on Bush you know where that is going to come from, too. I have no problem with hearing it all and blasting both of them but that is not the rule. Sometimes feelings get hurt. The posters begin waling on eggshells to keep from causing hard feelings and creating barriers to what they want to say. They end up saying nothing. .
I’m a hawk on most “war and peace” issues. Kari and Jean are doves. Charlie tends to side with Bush. I think he’s a jerk, but I support his war policy – because most of it comes straight out of my book. At lest the post 911 actions do and much of the rhetoric.
As far as your comments about the “other” captured soldiers in Iraq – I’m with you. I, too,want to know more about these "invisible warrirs." I’ve been dying to hear someone else say it. I’m glad you did. –Jasper
