WAIT! Before you edit I need to make one point crystal clear. Downvoting with out a comment explaining why is gutless. Make that Fucking Gutless.
Edit at will :)
You are correct (per normal). We can rise up, there is no doubt about it. Will we? I'm thinking probably not. Sorry, I'm a realist. I've been around the platform a bit, and I'm telling you that not all the 'powers that be' are out of touch with the masses and the problems.
What I think is much more likely to happen is that some of the communities could become like guilds. People that think alike on a couple of real important issues and act in concert to protect themselves and improve their standing. Yes, I'm thinking PHC.
Probably not the time or place to compare our notes on blogging. I paid the server costs and dev costs for 10 years out of pocket with nothing coming into pocket. I did learn the power of engagement and finding people to support. \
Thanks Jaynie. I appreciate honesty and passion more than anything.
