hmm..... Well, here is my opinion. I left the JC for about 4 months because of arbritrary rules such as this. I left when the AC was just being formed. Much drama was happening......it is still happening. This rule is just plain ridiculous. I understand the knee-jerk reaction to it being thought of...but am not understanding why logic did not take over in the decision making process. Now, I think that the administration knows that ANY change is going to be tough...but this one is sooooo radical. TO ban it completly,regardless of the "we can make any rule we want" way of thinking...regardless to the idea that this is a "private board", will take away from the quality these boards have. You will lose good members....intelligent members who post good threads. Remember, it may be privatly owned, but WE are the ones who keep it going.
