If I want to participate in other forums I'll do that too. I'm here to learn, to post and share opinions and to communicate. I would also like to see things improve both on the forums and in SL Gor.
As far as OOC and getting to know others as friends, I wasn't talking about doing it in an unnatural way. I don't walk up to someone and start spilling my RL to them. But I'm not so afraid that I have to hide behind a role and not be friendly. And as far as saying that the main objective is to RP - well keep in mind that there's also a section here for Lifestylers whether the hardcore RPers like it or not. Some are even in the middle and do both! Not everyone is on the far extremes. It might be "pure RP" to you and some others but it's not to everyone.
I wasn't saying that those that quit SL Gor should necessarily leave the forums. I was asking WHY they stayed if they didn't play anymore for a long period of time or if they disliked the game which several have stated before. I STILL don't understand why anyone would hang around in any forum or group if they disliked what the forums were made for. Just like you, I'm allowed to have my opinions and to state them here.
I chose to ignore comments from people who are no longer active for several reasons;
a) for some reason they became jaded, they couldnt balance their perspective of Gorean interpretation to role play in SL and left, they couldnt co-exist in a cyber world with others where there is no black and white - that tells me something

Treat, I dont have all the answers, thats my main purpose in following this forum.. to learn, gain insight and apply the occassional snippet of information that I find here back into my personal RP
.. but equally I find it destructive and counter productive for those who dont even contribute with their presence in gorean RP to be so vocal with their comments.
Whats their purpose ?.. they dont come into SL GOR to make it better, to be role models for others, to actually contribute their time and this HUGGGGE wealth of experience and insights they claim to have to make the place better..
No.. they sit sniping, arguing, making condescending comments, pull up some quote out of their arse and try and impose their perspective on a debate when they themselves will never ever apply that dogmatic perspective in RP.
