"THESE FORUMS REPLACED BY NEW CONTENT AREA Because of the new comment area on stories at uticaOD.com, this forum will cease to exist after Friday, April 18. We welcome you to comment on stories at uticaOD.com."
I just don't think I'm going back again. Good thing I got in here when I did.
We are glad you got in here also. There was no rush to "get in when you did", but we are glad to have you back among us. I personally missed ya when I more or less went away from the OD forums to an extent, and you got busy and didn't post as much.
Yes, it is sad that the forums on the OD homepage went downhill and simply died, as they did. I would not like to think that our coming here as a group, and not posting over there as much, contributed to it, but it may have had a negative impact on that board.
You will find that most of the "active" posters from there are here now, and enjoying it. Welcome once more and we are glad to have you with the rest of us.
Well, I guess we can forget about the "former" OD forums. They have indeed locked all the threads so you can't post anything anywhere on the whole forum.
I would say, that judging from the lack of interest the last few days and the lack of new threads to read, the forum will probably dissappear tommorrow, instead of waiting until Friday.
I guess some of the people will find their way here, and I hope we don't get any of the "irritainers" and attempts from those that we banned. There are some good members over there with interesting views, and then there are some nutcases with agendas that we can live without. haha.
While I have a vague interest in the NH political issues, and I am sure we have new hartford residents on this board, I really kinda hope that the ongoing "peeing contest" from the OD board doesn't come here.( no insinuation intended that these people are the nutcases referenced above ) That is simply a personal observation. If anyone has an interest in bringing those viewpoints here, we are not here to moderate opinions. That is what put the OD forums in such a bad light with members.
Moderating could get much stickier. I have been "moderated" myself for less than good judgement in my posting, but the personal attacks go on and on without interference on the other forum, and that would not fly here.
We may grow in the near future, and I hope it is in a productive manner, and brings new and fun people to the group.
