I have tried Mark, but we just can't figure out the logistics. Yes it could go rogue. However if it were members only, it would not be seen by the general public. We may need to eventually have it so that we can compete with Facebook. I think I am the only staff member remotely open to the idea, so don't count on it in the near future. It could build friendships between members, but it could also do more harm than good.
I haven't followed FB closely, but it seems mostly civil, no? But tell me how this forum is failing to compete with FB. I'm not asking you to defend anything, just exploring ideas and requesting facts/impressions. I don't have an agenda, just brainstorming.
FYI, for people joining this thread, the discussion started around a forum poster who knows a lot about Chinese natives, and whether or not subjects like that could be discussed somewhere on this forum, such as a general free-form conversation area.
