And a special thanks for not including a board dedicated to diversity discussions. I don't know if you forgot or intentionally omitted it. But it gives me hope, either way.
I love working with young people. Their minds are wide open and you can get to them before they have a chance to follow the herd.

The CHE diversity board was not active enough to warrant starting with a board here in that area.  If enough threads are started to support a standalone/child board for useful grouping, then such will be done.

Personally, I'd rather have discussions I want to skip clumped together all in one easy-to-ignore board.
Do whatever you want--I'm just the background dancer in your show!

It's worse than just than something to ignore. It's a

Yes, amazing work renewing the board! I very much appreciate it.

I've been off the board for a long while, but then started messing with registration and such. Figured it out, sorta', and am glad to be back.

Cheers to all.

I was happy to see your moniker!

M.
Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.

Reprove not a scorner, lest they hate thee: rebuke the wise, and they will love thee.

Give instruction to the wise, and they will be yet wiser: teach the just, and they will increase in learning.
