Facist old-timers & fun on the list :)

I most humbly acknowledge the wisdom from our most demonic rodent. :) I 
seriously was not trying to be a facist & clamp down on ANYTHING 
non-Groo. The Groop may be tied to the roots of Groo, but we've 
definitely had lots of fun on our own as well. For those who took my 
words to heart on that matter, my apologies.

Well, as you pointed out, the Groop is about fun & friends & such. I 
think we've done better than most lists just governing ourselves & NOT 
having rules. Common sense & courtesy can go a long ways when they're

I would never ask you to not post non-Groo stuff, oh squirrelly one! I 
was only trying to walk the tightrope of a perfect balance. There DO seem 
to be 2 groups of Groopers: those that sway toward pure Grooism & a dozen 
posts a week from the Groop, and those that tend toward a dozen an hour & 
keeping each other in stitches. The neat thing is that they overlap here 
on the Groop. The hard thing is keeping both happy. It IS tough to sort 
through 100-150 posts a week just to get to the Groo stuff. And obviously 
some of the Groop go stir-crazy if 6 hours goes by & noone's said 
anything? We talked about a "Groo-lite" list at one point (which Mark 
liked the idea of)...any other ideas? Maybe something in the subject 
line? Anyone? Bueller?

Geez!! I can be long-winded! (Is this what you meant by "earnest", Gary!? 
LOL) One more brief blurb, and I'll go back to the analog world for a few 
days. :) If not for the Groop, I would have never met Nate. The Groop is 
a blessing for things like that. My tastes vary from Nates on a *number* 
of fronts! :) But not only have we become friends through the Groop, I'm 
impressed by his talents, and we've even come to collaborate on a couple 
projects. And I'm glad I've had the opportunity. I won't even go into the 
friendships I've started up with Gary, Chris, Ruben & others whom I do a 
disservice by not mentioning them all! Um...I have no idea where I was 
headed with all this...guess I just felt like sharing...


PS Finn backed off on the whole casting question, but if folks want to 
send their ideas to me off-list? I'll be happy to put together a little 
casting page to be added in to some site or another.
