I really liked the idea of this board and added it to my favorites when I read about it.

Unfortunately, it appears that it's going to be another high volume, low value board. Please feel free to drop me a note if it appears that the board is getting back on topic. For now I'm going to spend my time elsewhere.

I suppose high traffic is better than no traffic, though, right? :)


I really didn't like the idea of this board. I had two reasons:

1. Every other spin-off board on TMF from the REHP board has withered away and thus getting excited about this one would be foolish.

2. The ideas meant to be expressed her are applicable to the REHP board and a new board just fragments the community.

All the threads so far could easily have been posted (and would likely have the same quality responses) on the REHP Board. While the OT posts over there do not bother me (love reading the boards threaded, one click and I'm on to the next!) I understand that we "wannabes" do not have the time to read and keep up on all of them. Still, easy to ignore and they keep the successful FIREes around to answer our on-topic questions so that we can learn from them and their success.

As it is, I've "favoritized" this board and now have yet another board to check each day. I hope it does succeed and if it too withers that those here will not hesitate to post on-topic on the REHP board. For all it's flaws, the REHP board's community does rally when on-topic issues are brought forth.

Best of luck.
