    I realize that we are a group with very different views. In light of that, I think it's fair to say that no matter what you say or how you say it, there is Always going to be someone who takes offense. With this in mind, I was wondering if perhaps there should be a place set aside for folks to voice their takes on issues, a place separate from the main forum, but still open for those who want to participate, like maybe a blogger section for the site? Now, it's possible this exist here on Destee, and being that I have been away for a minute, I have not throughly scanned the site and am over looking it.

    Anyway, if there is no such place, I feel there should be such a place for people who may have opinions or hurts or whatever that the majority may not want to hear or are tired of hearing but a minority may want to listen to or talk over or whatever.Blogs on most forums allow for privacy settings, so only those on the friends list or mods actually see. And well, people can't get mad about what they can't see. I guess, in my opinion, it would keep down confusion, and prevent threads from having to be shut down. I guess, I'm just tryign to find room for everyone, whether I agree with their message or not. Please don't yell at me. *runs for cover*

    Yea, I think it's a good idea. Most other sites, i have frequented in the past have these and keeps the mods from feeling like they have to miscro manage. I mean we're always going to have people who disagree or what not. We're going to have people who hurt and want advice (raises hands) but I don't think they should be shoved off the forums for being disruptive when they have so much more they could possibly bring to the floor. Just give them a corner to vent in and those who want to participate can go over and help them through.

    Yes we are a community that is designed to look forward, but in order to look forward, sometimes we have to chop down all the brush blocking our view. Blogs are therapeutic and for a community with a lot of hurt coming from a lot of places, I think blogs can prove a wonderful addition to this wonderful site. JMHO though. =)

    Our previous forum had a blog section, but the site had to shut-down temporarily due porn material spamming. However, we had to completely start anew and the other categories we be returned soon.
