I can't honestly see where I was (or am) trying to silence anybody. I
have just been pointing out that the overwhelming response to the
suggestion was negative and that there didn't seem to be any point in
continuing discussion. And, if you'll go back over the thread, you'll
see that I've had good things to say about forums and expressed no
personal opinion of the idea. Judging by the response, it would
probably be a bad idea, but I'd have no reason to walk away, preferring
to give it a try. Alas, I seem to be in the minority and unlike some
others, I don't see how beating a dead horse is going to help. If
that's what you call "trying to silence people," your understanding of
those words is considerably different than mine.
