You know Casey, I'm getting pretty sick of your poor attitude, the last meeting was going ok until you started acting like a pissy thirteen year old. We were having a decent, reasonable conversation, and you turned it into a pissing contest, over what? titles? officers? if you don't care about this stuff, then DON'T CARE ABOUT IT, and stop worrying about it. If you don't see the point in having dues or officers, then leave it to someone who does see the point. So far you're the only person, that I can think of, who's said that they think officers are a bad idea. No one else has a problem with it, so why don't you just accept the fact that the group is going to try and be organized whether you like it or not. I don't know about anyone else, but I'm getting tired of your little "mood swings". You're taking this way to personally and way to seriously... If this SW group has such a radical impact on your life, maybe you need to take a good long break, and hang up the armor. So in other words, you just want to sit around and play Halo all the time? That sounds pretty productive, a good way to spend our meetings, but I guess that wouldn't make us a Star Wars group anymore, would it? What would you suggest we do to have fun at meetings?? The floor is yours Casey, you get all the attention you're fishing for, tell us, what is FUN? What should we be spending our meetings doing? Bottom line, if you're not having fun, it's because you're not LETTING YOURSELF have fun. As soon as you're ready to join the rest of us for a mature, fun time, we'll be waiting. ---------------- Now, on to much more important matters. I hear everyone's concern about the titles "active" and "inactive" and that we should just label them "paid" or "unpaid" instead, but isn't that a bit self-defeating??? we're just using different titles... wouldn't being called an "unpaid" member be a little degrading?? Maybe I'm missing the point though. I'm fairly certain that A) in order to become "active" there was also a meeting attendance requirement in addition to the payment of dues, and B) the reason we were labeling them "active" and "inactive" was so that people would want to get the "active" status... You have to want it, otherwise it's pointless to have it.
