Hmmm, that is an interesting interpretation.
See, what I read was someone not really a long time CC'er create an account and advertise a new forum they created.
It was advertising. Reasonable, targeted advertising that I don't object to - unlike adult sites, voip, Nigerian banking opportunites etc - but advertising nonetheless.

See John, what you wrote is my concern as well.However, a more cohesive and friendly community is NOT built by splintering further. It would be built by serving a previously under-represented community.
I still have not seen a coherant declaration of the community or theme this new forum serves. I don't honestly care what community or theme they serve other than I would hope they would not simply duplicate what is out there already and they would be honest if they are a faith-based community.
Oh, and Josh., sorry to keep this going. I'll try to stop now cause I have nothing personal against the creator and I sure don't want CC to be seen as a hotbed of dissent (I post to JLUG for that.
