I'm out of the loop when it comes to what's going on with GBES. My source was looking in from time to time on the Yahoo page. Mostly I didn't care, only when I got wind something of interest was being talked about would I peak in and follow a thread for awhile, then disappear again.
But I'm worried...
I'm worried because of the sudden increase in activity here and the creation of a Nevada Thread on gc.com. I'm worried because of the increase in members now straddling the fence between which group to use. Call it joining the dark side, I see it as jumping ship.
I'm worried too that now certain long time members are moderated to the point of not being able to post. I'm worried that now the GBES is a Members Only group. Why the lock down?
I'm worried that the tensions that have been around for years are felt by the newest members at events - where such things should not be. I worry about the increase in flair ups, differing views jumped upon and silenced or driven away.
What's going on? Why does there seem to be a movement of 'something' under the group? I'm alone in my world, talking only to others periodically, and never about GBES. It's not my group, I have no say in it. But why the negativity that I pick up from the multiple people I do talk to? A sadness, or a darkness, 'something'.
I'm worried for the group and scared that 'something' will break them apart. Can you see the fractures forming?
Pay me no mind, just listen to what I say and move on in your journey. But keep my words somewhere in your thoughts and find me proof that I am wrong or that I am misled.
Should I even post this? I do not wish to ruffle feathers, I only wish ask why. Why are things they way they are. Hurm, just let this thread fall and see where it might land.
