    Lots of new members

    I have noticed that there are a lot of posts from members whose total posts are less than about 250.

    I just broke in the old members, and now I have to learn the personality of all these new members.

    Will the work never cease?

    At least you should be proud that you have us all "broken in".

    Well, actually, you wouldn't need to work so hard at learning the new personalities-------------if you try and mold them into the forum personalities you're used to seeing. LOL!

    A lot of them will croak out or be lurkers, I don't bother to try and learn their styles; if I do I do, if not I'm not going to loose sleep over it. We have enough characters in the old crew from the CC days, some have moved on, others have stayed.

    New blood keeps everything entertaining and brings new ideas into the fold, otherwise we would all just listen to Sixto talk about 870's all day.

    Some of us who seem to croak out may just have jobs that change our habits and activity times. I am in construction and for the past few weeks until February I am out the door at 5:30am and not home until dinner. Then what time is left before bed is very short. I have found myself looking at all the new posts and being too tired to reply.
