Normally, I open my p.c. in the a.m. And, when I rest it until the next morning, there are numerous posting to review and digest. It now appears the participants who write the best, longest, most interesting, most frequently etc. have somehow decided to refrain from writing in, what I perceive, as a lesson to the chowhound team for their decision to remove a person from posting. I try to keep my life uncomlicated, and have refused to take sides. Former "friends" calling each other names sounds like children in the playground who eventually will make up anyway, results in bruised egos all around. If you are playing a game, and the referee makes a call that you disagree with, you get over it, because you can't have the players, making the decisions. What a fun football game that would be. I know there are chowhounds who strongly disagree with me, but since I have no chowhound ego to bruise, go ahead.
