[QUOTE] (reformatted for faster reading)

I see people having a hard time knowing how to behave,

  veering from flaming rage to desperately cautious oversensitivity.


All of the things are connected simply by the fact that the internet

  (and particularly the Bronze) are new societies, still forming,

    and the rules, the boundaries, are still unclear.


Feels a bit like the end of the STAND, when the police

  are asking to be armed and they wonder if the new society

     will be any better -- or any DIFFERENT -- from the old.


Well, this one will be different.

  Privacy and propriety are going to become very tricky issues here.

  I don't really have any brilliant conclusion [. . .], and I'm certainly

    not here to say "Don't do the following!," or "Behave this way!"

  I just want to say that it's hard. [ . . .]


It used to be simpler, but now this community

  has grown to the point where laws start to be made.

    Personally, I feel like we have way too many and not nearly enough,

      depending on the day of the week.


But it's a good community --

  a lot of you have posted things that I love

    -- and I'm not referring to the PRAISE,,

       love the PRAISE but that's not what I mean here --

    things that made me thing, reassess, laugh [...] all kinds of stuff.


And I know it's a blast for the writers, and others to talk to you guys

  and get the PRAISE and joke around -- none of us could had that contact

    without this, and we treasure it.


It's just that there is a dark side to it, and it showed up with a vengeance.

Thank you for sharing that quote.

I think I will paste and copy it to a special someone.

Hehe

LOL

Let's always have fun in here, and I really do believe that Marti Noxon is doing just fine.
