LOL! Oh, well you don't have to stop using these words, or avoid using them. I just ask so that I know what you're trying to say about something. I'm actually looking forward to learning something new every now and then. Although I already know what "bobbie" means, "the stuffie" has me stumped. Can't even offer a guess about it! LOL!
Well this board hasn't been very active either, chilln, until just now. I think snohare pointed out (in another thread) that there are way many more times that messages are read, than the number of replies posted. I don't really understand why, but some boards are very active, with several new topic threads, as well as replies to existing threads, posted daily; while others maybe get just a few new posts of any kind per week, or per month in some cases. Part of the problem may be for lack of moderators. All HW moderators are volunteers, and new ones have not always been solicited by the administration. But that can't be the whole story, because there are a few boards which remain spontaeously active, without the help of a moderator. Plus there are boards like this one, which despite having a moderator, still are not very active. So it's hard to say for sure what the problem is. By the way, I think currently there are messages from the HW administrator, on some of the boards which don't have moderators, inviting volunteers. So if anyone is interested in volunteering as a moderator, please feel free to follow the instructions given in those messages.
I'm not sure what you mean by "... so are there any on-going projects by which we help each other to be productive in our own capacity?" And I think it's the word "project" which is confusing me. Any member who wants to, can start their own topic thread, about anything related to CFS (on this board). Just click "New Topic", type your message and ask for comments, or support, or whatever. Or are you talking about support groups, where you would go in-person, to give and receive support? I'm just not sure what you're asking, so if you can clear that up for me, I'll be more than glad to try to answer (again)!
Are there really message boards about housekeeping? Yikes! I don't think I would ever want to participate in something like that, healthy or not. No offense, that's just me...but yikes! LOL!
