I like it the way it is, wart-infested or not, depending on your point of view. I have gotten into about as many arguments as anybody, I guess, but I can't remember not parting on a friendly, or at least civil basis. The thing that makes this different from a chatroom is that we do have something to say, more relevant than "Have a beer!", and people respond in a way that reflects their own personalities. If someone is caring and nurturing, they will be here. If they're butthole retentive, so will be their posts. I think it's going pretty good.
