The only people who never annoy anyone are people without personality
This is also true for boards. Part of what we all are trying to figure out is how to balance the crossfit boards so they have enough personality to be interesting to the varied group that are attracted to them while not becoming so "in-group" that new folks don't feel like they belong. I don't have any words of wisdom but maybe we could think through what our real purpose is here. It might inform us of what our principles should be. Is our purpose simply to provide information? Is it to support the ongoing development of the community? Something else? What should be the role of moderators in the community with the purpose that is decided upon? What is the role of members?
All good questions. Don't got any answers.
