Re: Are we elitists?

This is one of the most open welcoming and balanced sites I have found. Yes there are some very snobby, one sided, ultra right wing sites, where only elitist, right wing, pro consumerism posts are allowed, and offering "out of the box thinking" style solutions to the not so rich can get you banned ( Cruisers forum, anything sailing .com, boat, etc, etc) but this is anything but. There is a wide spectrum of philosophies and ways of thinking here with some brilliant postings. I don't know why I wasted so much time on those other sites, I wouldn't recommend anyone seeking solutions there, being as they are usually dominated by the hecklers veto, by people who don't have much in the way of experience or ideas.
No, you wont find many sites as open as this one.
