Darn, this is a long thread and I didn't know it was here until this evening. I know we are moving to the afterglow chocolate eating part, but I still have to say something.
I posted on the pulled thread. I actually started talking about prefolds. The conversation was moved to TAO. The only reason I can think is because some of us posting on the thread are TAO regulars, not CD regulars. I kept talking about diapers, figuring it would be moved back to diapering eventually. Then I went to look for it and found it was pulled because it had no value. Really, isn't that true of half the threads here? OK, 1/3rd at least?
I know there are CDers who participate in more than just the diapering forum, but it does seem like the close knit group of CD participants would rather just have their own forum apart from the NFL/AP. There are MDC users who stick to just one or two forums, like Circumcision or Queer Parenting. However, I get the feeling that many of the diapering participants would like to talk about general parenting issues and have chat threads that are within the diapering forum, not all over MDC. I've often wondered if there was a way to spin the MDC diapering group off into it's own little board. I guess it wouldn't really work, but I don't think integration is going to occur in my lifetime. :LOL
