Over the years on FFL whenever Doug would display displeasure at the content some of us suggested he just form his own Yahoo Group. Of course we also suggested he would probably only have one member. :-D

Rick can speak for himself but we do know he got too busy with BGP to do much with FFL. I'm betting that Doug was the only person interested in taking over FFL. No one else we know of offered or it might have gone to them instead.

Why have exploratory negotiations over anything here? its a Yahoo Group, end of story. If a bunch of people who feel strongly about group meditation and the upcoming election want to get on here and advocate for that, more power to them. But to restrict any discourse to that sole topic would make this a really quiet place - Try it if you like, but I don't think it will work. Just keeping the spam, assholes and trolls away is job enough, and so far, so good. I do find our resident from TX in all his aliases pretty OCD, but more a harmless pain in the rump vs anything truly disruptive or offensive.

Interestingly I have been in some exploratory negotiations over the brand name we use here of FairfieldLife and a use of FairfieldLife by the Fairfield, Iowa community. For one month, from the first Tuesday in October to the first November Tuesday, Election Day in November there is some planning that proposes FFL be a platform to what will be a coordinated push for communal meditation and events in the spiritual community of Fairfield, Iowa. .

One iteration of proposal is to leave the FFL community as it is, to retain FFL as an open place of spiritual critique and to simply add the relevant meditating project component to the FFL content.

Another proposal is to make FFL exclusive to the communal meditation project for the month of October unto the Election Day. .

Also in these kinds of conversations is a position held by small segments as to absolutely close FairfieldLife down as a Yahoo-Group.

Most of us who are discussing politics are not "trolling," and it's insulting to suggest otherwise.

Political discussions are "without spiritual context" only if you put spirituality in a box and wall it off from the rest of human experience. Rick realized this, and chose not to build such walls. That's why he didn't limit discussion topics in any way (other than to exclude pornography).

It looks like we (the non-spiritual cretins that we are) may be exiled off to FFL-2 if this keeps up...

I am appreciating the comments here about the group.

The trolling of mundane subject threads here posted and scrolling ticker-tape style down the subject line with first lines of posts like one can read on news feeds most anywhere, but on FFL, a spiritual Yahoo-group, they often do seem to abuse the freedom of what Yahoo provides us as a group. .

While being entertained by most any and all of content posted here on FF yet as a responsible member here I am looking at several who have long method in trolling the site with offered material that is quite without spiritual context, evidently unrelated to FFL, a spiritual Yahoo-group. Yahoo asks us for moderation. I have relied on membership to self-contain themselves in a moderation according to an inherent civility entailed the Yahoo-groups guidelines as the means of community here. Most have been abl! e to write quite well within what is given to us as the Yahoo-groups guidelines. Those guidelines do provide really quite wide margins for expression..
