For the first time, I just viewed the entire 16-page Memberlist. I didn't recognize more than eight--maybe ten--handles at the very most who ever have replied to my diatribes. I'm speaking of user names I've seen since renewing my active participation only a couple of weeks ago.
Depending on what this forum costs ANU, I wonder if it represents the wisest use of precious funds.
I feel as though I'm talking into a dead microphone. Perhaps Don and Nelsoncan lend encouragement andfurther enlighten me.
By the way, provided I can keep my weary eyes pried open until 9:00 (Pacific) tonight, I'll give a listen to Don's new radio show ... maybe even call in.
Fret not, Warren -- this forum is the only place on the net where people can say what needs saying the right way. You get the truth in print here and over time a large number of different people view your stuff. Some posts have already had thousands of views -- so far!)Surely that's worth your time?
Another sheer wonder about the net is how little a lot of site space costs. I don't know if this is the case with ANU.ORG, but so far Don seems to think it's worth it -- thank God.
You have to remember, too, that when even a small number of the right people confer and compare notes together as our motley crew does here, it's extremely constructive. How many Jews do you suppose are meeting at a time in small cells and meeting rooms in synagagues AND TV NETWORK OFFICES around the country constantly plotting our destruction? Not bloody many, a lot of the time!

Not all boards are overly active. Our Way of Life, which I believe is the board for the Council of Conservative Citizens, has 713 registered users but just 744 posts.
This board has picked up a little. Most on-line Nationalist Times readers just aren't going to participate no matter how times they're asked to, for reasons that escape me, but we're picking up about one new registered board member per day. Over time more will participate, and eventually it'll get busy.

I have seen at other forums only a very small number of people form the core of the posters so we only probably need 4 or 5 other posters like Nelson (or at least like he use to be).[img]smileys/smiley2.gif[/img] Probably, other good posters will come from outside the ANU which membership seems not too much into computers but as time goes along that will probably change. A few years ago it would probably have been easier to start an ANU forum and get lots of people to it because the early nationalist forums on places like Yahoo were always being deleted, so people were always looking for new places to post which caused many different nationalist web sites to get forums, which means that most of the computer literate people already have places they post to. Don't get too frustrated in time good new posters will join but it will be a slow process. Also, if you can get a lot of lurkers (people who read but do not post) that is good too as long as you have enough post for them to come back for. Personally I prefer lurking around a forum rather than posting. Only post because someone needs to. I know a lot of my posts are redundant. Just post and be patient more will come in time!
I like your posts and will trade posts with you as long as you wish. I for one would like to see you continue! You and the rest of the folks on The Boards are closer friends to me than all the people in my workplace put together.
The trick is hanging in there. I'm convinced ANU will blossom and within five years we'll be able to have that long-lost general meeting that we all want. I would be proud to pay your airfare to Pennsylvania for the July 2008 ANU General Blast!
