...So I say I'm not very impressed by the idea of "members" and "guest". You tell people this is a public forum yet you restrict the voting access to a considerably large group of participant, just because they chose to keep their personal only for them self. A typically web site that require membership access is because they want sell their member's information for a profit, or to feed the propaganda material in their members mailbox, either way they are just a step in their money making process. I fail to see Rolia fall into this category so if some one feel comfortable to let everybody know his email address just be it, but that doesn't necessarily mean everyone else has to follow, and that's not necessarily mean those who do not follow should be considered as outsider.
The process of voting, is to collect the opinions for a particular issue, should be conducted in a way of mass survey, to have an actual picture it is important to get most people involved. As we've all seen, this forum is becoming some kind of narcissistic place where some people come to get their Ego massaged. I've noticed that when ever the issue raised the poor guy immediately get bombard by other one's inner circle friends for their sense of tribal man's morality, and some time admin also took their side and busy doing selective deleting. Yes, I said "Selective Deleting" because yours truly once to be admin's victim. Obviously they've already developed kind of bond or something so any wish of balancing from admin has became a luxury for the rest. By putting a checkpoint in front of voting booth I can imagine how the result be hijacked by group of people, and, it gives visitors false impression that it is the trend of opinion.
All been said, I still appreciate sailor's effort to bring this forum so alive, thank you.＜本文发表于: 相约加拿大:枫下论坛 www.rolia.net/f ＞
