I am very aware of slashdot, what I was proposing is a bit different
from that because it concerns the SATLUG community as opposed to the
larger slashdot community. Quite literally a /reasoned/ conversation
amongst /ourselves/ about these issues. If we offer the SATLUG members a
way to express themselves in a constructive manner and within the
/proper /context then we may be able to avoid the unfortunate flame war
that pops up on the tech/knowledge list.
