    If I understand properly, the over-seriousness is just the problem many people have with it. Probably also the more Te-oriented moderation style.

    I'm not going to disagree with you on the truth of your conclusion, since my experience was perhaps propagated by my own actions and was not a product of their 'niceness' or lack thereof. However, I will say that judging a group based upon their actions in a welcome thread is a tad premature. I'm sure a tribe of murderous cannibals might greet a nice plump newcomer with kind words and toothy grins.

    Except for the interns selling your ass to the local camp soldiers, things get better after the lobotomy.

    It's okay, it just sets her up so that the ongoing narrative will have even more unexpected but exciting twists and turns.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    These are assumptions, but let's assume they are true.
    So What?

    We experimented with a more democratic method of management but it didn't work out.
    Someone has to be at the wheel.

    Let's also assume that you are correct about a group of members who feel intimidated/inhibited by the situation. If so, as JohnBoy said, the best move is to leave.
    Why would they stay if this assumption was true???

    INTPc is simply never going to be a One-Size-Fits-All
    ...no matter who is at the wheel.

    BTW: I don't give much credence to the two aforementioned assumptions, but the only way to more perfectly resolve the matter would be to do as MacG suggested and hoist the OP over there.
    These are assumptions, but let's assume they are true.

    ^ That'll be easy because they are.

    So What?

    ^ What do you mean "So what?" What kind of answer is that?

    We experimented with a more democratic method of management but it didn't work out.

    ^ And you can honestly say that our current method is? Look at the state of our forum. Listen to our members complaints.

    Someone has to be at the wheel.

    ^ Is that how it happend?! The person to fill that important position was chosen by default?

    Let's also assume that you are correct about a group of members who feel intimidated/inhibited by the situation. If so, as JohnBoy said, the best move is to leave.

    ^ Are you sure it's the best move? I ask because that's exactly what their doing.

    Why would they stay if this assumption was true???

    ^ You're right, they wouldn't and their not. Look at how many members have left.

    INTPc is simply never going to be a One-Size-Fits-All...no matter who is at the wheel.

    ^ But right now it fits almost none. Do we want it that small? Maybe the Who at the Wheel does kind of matter?

    BTW: I don't give much credence to the two aforementioned assumptions.

    ^ But did you at least give it some thought?

    but the only way to more perfectly resolve the matter would be to do as MacG suggested and hoist the OP over there.

    ^ But the majority of our most sensible members are no longer there and a few more then a little ended up here.

    Trying to parse who you're responding to is getting more and more difficult.

    It's true I spoke too soon since Jennifer was kind enough to enlighten me about the true nature of death threats.
