Re: The Loose Canon, and Bobby's involvement.
I have JUST spoken to him, and he gives his full blessing. He always thought it was a great idea, he's happy to see it being picked up again, and is willing to help in any way he can.
Also, he doesn't ignore us down here. He does have a real job which keeps him very busy, and for a very long time now far out of the country (right now he's in the Philippines). He doesn't post here much, but he signs on irregularly to see what's up, and if I need something, the email turnover is a matter of hours. And if it is a real emergency, I actually have his phone number! (amazing, I know). He's easier to get ahold of than my sister, and she and I live together.
No one is going to get sued, and no one ever was going to get sued. The issues that arose between Bobby and the previous administration had nothing to do with the Loose Canon.
This project is a go, you have my word on it. If there is any doubt over what my word is worth, I can't do anything about that, but seeing as my word is the only thing that holds this place together, if you don't think it is trustworthy, maybe you shouldn't be here in the first place.
I see no reason to continue this line of discussion, unless of course the goal is to be disruptive or divisive. I have no interest in seeing another rumor mill start up. I see no benefit to speaking ill of people who have either chosen to no longer participate here, or are now doing so under what they think is some degree of anonymity, for whatever reason.
Platy, I don't know that a wiki is the best way to get started on this. If you want, I can set up a subsection here on the forum for you and whomever you want to help you out, and then once it is complete it can be transferred to a wiki. But random editting of it was an issue that I think is good to avoid the second time around. Admittedly though, I don't know crap about how wikis work.
If there is still any concern about this, I will go back to Bobby AGAIN, and ask him to come by and personally offer his stamp of approval.
True terror lies in the futility of human existence.

"The only freedom deserving the name, is that of pursuing our own good in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it. Each is the proper guardian of his own health, whether bodily, or mental and spiritual. Mankind are greater gainers by suffering each other to live as seems good to themselves, than by compelling each to live as seems good to the rest." - John Stuart Mill
