I've looked up a lot of old threads from when I first joined, there were lots and lots of people with 1000+ posts you just don't see around anymore.

I just find CT is pretty cliquey, and I'm certainly not the only one that notices it

I agree. Just an observation, any opinions, values or commentary contrary to the "clique" is rebuffed.

Having said that, there is no reason to tuck tail and leave.

Do you honestly think there are cliques? I see people try to swim up stream, and commit forum suicide sometimes. I honestly don't think there are cliques.

Probably the wrong word but being more direct might not be wise.

Lot of people that actually know their business have left. Thankful we still have a few.
Lot more talent has left than is signing up though.

Yes. Those who are emotionally vulnerable to cope with views that challenge their own should be afforded a safe place. Something like the Daily Inspirational Thread.

MrVictorDomino still posts here sometimes...He is from Kentucky.

I appreciate all the help I have gotten on these boards. And I think of folks often. BrangusCowGirl, Bez and others.

Edit to add...I loved the pics that Wichita Line Man used to post! be nice nice Herefords.

Got a good story:

The federal service labors under the concept that all relationship issues can be resolved by sensitivity training. A black employee filed a grievance against a manager who was also my manager. The employee asserted that the manager often referred to him as "boy". The manager denied it so they sent about 10 of us out of town for a week of sensitivity training. The manager was pizzed. So one evening, we were all in the Lounge drinking. The manager had a couple martinis and sat right there and started calling this black employee "boy". It got empathic. He finally got in the black guys face and said something to the effect, "well, ain't that what they call you, BOY!"

To make a long story short, the manager was reassigned and relocated to another office which was a major disaster for his wife and two children who were in elementary school.

I was talking to Agman not too long a go. He had a bad ATV accident that has really set him back.

I was thinking about them a few days ago, wondering what they're up to.

I know MM was working dispatching airplanes for fire fighting and Angrie was headed to tx to be with her truelove


Sounds like good things. :) Thanks.
