I am scattered this month. More than usual. I've been sitting in the catbox jawing and not much else. Greeted many, given some advice, talked and talked and talked. Several of the new blood seem quite taken with E2, and eager to explore and participate. Several seem rather less inclined to understand how we tick before experimenting. It's all "good," although some of it is more exhausting than others. All in all, everyone's been polite at least with the private msgs. There's been some heat in the catbox, but it's not one sided. Get a few newbies with opinions and some noders with set ways and it can become heated quickly. A little cantankerous, but largely civil.
