  •  ahh.. (none)
    before this thread I never even opened an open thread...was too intimidating...no clue what it was about..just looked like comments on nothing to me... I will read it now, but maybe it should be better explained on the site for us new folks.
    •  Agree (none)
      as another newbie...I've never visited an open thread. They seemed intimidating to me, too -- a conversation between non-newbies that I didn't really feel comfortable entering. So yeah, perhaps there can be a way to better highlight/represent them. Anyway, thanks for helping bring all these questions to light.
    •  Great place to introduce topics too (none)
      ... you never know how many like-minded KOSsacks are interested in the same stuff (or are from the same area) till a topic comes up there and then WHAMMO.

      Also, as mentioned elsewhere, it's easy to scroll past subject matter that doesn't interest you. (It's like poking your head into a club and taking a look around before grabbing a table.)
