What would you like to see in this group?
Most of all I'd like to get to know some other people who enjoy LibraryThing as much as I do.
I am sure that many people from here will jump out into the other groups after time as someone mentioned on another thread. I spend a lot of time reading other group talk. I want to learn more about politics, religion and history. I find the conversation so interesting. I just don't like arguing over everything.
I read another post here where someone said they can see value both sides of a topic under debate. I think that is the case with me. I would be swinging on both sides, and it would make me look like I was just there to stir things up. But I am open minded, even if I think or believe one thing, I don't expect that others should have to. So having light-hearted discussion is more to my liking.
I would love for some of the more frequent posters to not lurk here and join in. I realize they are quite comfortable with the more aggressive debates, and that's fine. I love a good debate, sometimes there is nothing better than that to get the juices flowing. I value other peoples thoughts and opinions. Especially when they are more knowledgeable and have something to share. There may be times when someone wants to talk without strong debate, to share something or add to it. This can be that place.
It's not like either group of people have to be confined to one spot or another. There is now a choice whether you feel like sitting back for one type of discussion or another. I don't want other groups to feel offended by having a quieter, less argumentative group. But not everyone is up for that.
Having a choice is a good thing, and I look forward to this group growing. Thank you so much for starting it!
Thanks for this group BTW.
