Re: The future is now.
I take a bit of a 'the more the merrier' view of new clubs, but I will
always return to the AKA. I unsubbed a while ago from the other list
that Richard Sexton runs, as the flaming and silliness was out of
control. Killietalk is a bit of a haven after that. Maybe we get a
little carried away sometimes, but what do you expect from people who
have made the choice of assembling entire fishrooms? I constantly learn
from this list, as I do from my AKA membership.
I disagree with the people whom I see as wanting to overly 'guard' AKA
services, but since I don't see those services being overly guarded, it
doesn't worry me.
On the other list there were a few people who almost demonized anyone
who dared to run for an AKA Board of Trustees position. It seemed
excessive to me, and in 2 years of reading their postings, they never
succeeded in explaining why they had this generalized hate on. A lot of
them are people whose killiekeeping and knowledge I respect, but I'm
glad this list is here.
If someone starts a new list, fair enough. It won't hurt the AKA, and
might even help it. I've 'e-met' some really neat AKA members through
killie-trader, and have discovered they are usually killie-kepepers who
don't have enough pairs available to list in the BNL, but still have too
many to keep around. They generally seem to be from places without local
If the niche exists, something will probably evolve in it..., and I bet
it'll be a variety and not a new species.
