This list... was BBS format

I like how old school this list is.  Reading of better formats reminded me of how older discussion would start and loop for a few days, until eventually kim would step up and give his reasons why he made this list the way it is. 

Amazing to me,  LD still runs the way it did when i first discovered. Kim even still appears from time to time. Not sure how much behind the scenes stuff is going or who's involved in the day-to-day, but I'd like to believe that no one is and it's simply the genius of kim flint still looping.

This list ..reminds me of ...
. when i first discovered looping. - this list and community was the bible of looping for me
...when kim and mathias were giving edp instruction in every other post
...when we all speculated on how the repeater would rule the world (EDP!)

I say it like this. It's easy to bitch about things, but when it comes to putting your money where your mouth is, well that's where most people fall flat. It's a difficult thing for coders to begin a web forum. Someone could do it and call it loopersforum.com then those of us who wanted to switch, could. Those of us who love it this way, can stay here. It's just a matter of someone putting their mind to it and doing it.

BTW, this is not meant to go to just one person. I'm not singling anyone out on this. I'm just stating for the record that most people will talk...not do.

Ditto, This list doesn't word wrap for me and I can't respond with the same subject line. Many times I only get the first couple sentences and the rest runs several pages to the right. It is why my voice isn't heard here very much.

"But it is broke. Its 2012 guys, not 1971 arpanet. A BBS establishes  an interactive online repository that does not require every message to bounce around all the users. Its just grossly inefficient in storage and bandwith. Not to mention its multimedia limited.  I'm just sayin. Just a suggestion from the peanut gallery. ;)"
