I've been posting on e-catworld. I have over 500 posts there, I think for almost two years. I am still on moderation, so my posts sometimes don't appear for hours. I have, I think, a total of two posts deleted out of all that I've written. I wrote Frank and he was polite but noncommittal. The delay suppresses my participation, maybe Frank wants that, I don't know. I rarely see any appreciation there.
Many posts on ECW are just plain ignorant, the authors obviously don't know the history and the facts, and then there are some who, in theory, might know more, but appear to have an agenda. I'm writing this because I have received a pile of response notifications and it's annoying to keep answering in discussions where it's obvious the goal is not sharing of information or, even more, finding agreement. It's about make-wrong, and defending fixed positions.
So I'm starting this thread about ECW, to discuss and analyze posts there, distinct from the specific issue discussions that are found elsewhere. This thread is about ECW and the ECW community, or members of it.
