Synesthesia's response was thoughtful, insightful and articulate, that is the kind response that I like to read. Also marley mission's response was constructive, I can see where there coming from. Thank you.
Personal attacks are not constructive.
I read a lot on this forum that I am interested in and just pass it by without response or comment. I respect this commons space that others use, what I am interested in, may actually useful to someone else. If you have nothing to add, why not just move on.
When something catches my eye and I have something that I believe will add to the dialogue, I post a response.
There are sections of his Forum which have been dormant for years, which I believed I could add content to stimulate discussion. I am unafraid of starting a thread on a topic which is not being focused on, or is vaguely referred to on page 101 of 300-page thread. Also my unique perspective , I believe is an asset, on occasion, to provide insight to honest questions from sincere people who ask for help. I think that is the point of this forum.
Having to respond to personal attacks on this forum is a waste of my time.
The reason I only recently signed up to this forum, was because I had some time and it seemed the historical, debates over trivial matters and person attacks seemed to have been shed. Maybe I was wrong. If the only input you have on this forum is witty cutting remarks and unconstructive criticism, why are you here?

(1) What is your perception of what last sparrow tattoo Forum is today?
The forum? Too many garbage topics
(2) why do you participate?
well I still enjoy it to a degree
(3) what have you gained from it?
so much - cant put a price on the things i've learned here
(4) what do you think will make it better?
Well we could use some awesome folks returning and for the active folks - resist the urge to start shit topics - quality over quantity
as for the criticism of @Charles.M well he probably deserves it to a degree - he has made quite a few missteps here - and I'm not quite sure where I stand on some of his activity on here but whatever - LST is not life and life is not LST
