I think this explains how the cattle is herded, but what are the pillars of pedigogy utilized to create a topic
I gave examples of important issues that should be discussed before solvency advocates are chased down
and filed together.
I do not doubt how the process you describes works, nor do I doubt that everyone works very hard towards a
common goal of creating a topic.
If you want to say nothing "shady" happens in this community dealing with rules, what the topic areas are and
other issues, then you are really just kissing some a$$ right now.
So your post was nice, nor do I doubt what you say, but there is step one and two and you explained steps 3
and 4. I dont doubt the role you played nor anyone who shows up.
Yes I am coming for sure, I have no doubts about this. Which was my position last year, that if you dont show
up, and dont have a tight network with someone there, then your SOL (which you agreed with).
See you in KC
