Where did all the Open Minds Forum members go?

Fri Oct 19, 2012 12:29 pm by Admin

With Open Minds Forum restored now for almost half a year at it's new location with forumotion.com we can now turn to look at reaching out to OMF's original members who have not yet returned home. OMF's original membership was over 6,000 members strong, prior to the proboards suspension, according to the rolls of the time. We can probably safely assume that some of those accounts were unidentified socks. If we were to assume a reasonable guess of maybe as many as 30% possible sock accounts then that would leave potentially somewhere between 4800 to 4900 possible real members to locate. That is still a substantial number of people.

Who were all these people? Some were average individuals with common interests in ufology, exopolitics, globalism, corruption, earthchanges, science and technology, and a variety of other interests. Some just enjoyed being part of a vibrant and unusually interesting community. Others were representative of various insider groups participating in observation and outreach projects, while still others were bonafide intelligence community personnel. All with stake in the hunt for truth in one fashion or another. Some in support of truth, and communication. Others seeking real disclosure and forms of proof. And others highly skeptical of anything or limited subjects. The smallest division of membership being wholly anti-disclosure oriented.

So where did these members vanish to? They had many options. There are almost innumerable other forums out there on the topics of UFO's or Exopolitics, the Unexplained, and Conspiracy Theory. Did they disappear into the world-wide network of forum inhabitants? Did some go find new homes on chatrooms or individual blogs? Did they participate in ufo conventions or other public events and gatherings? How about those who represented groups in special access? Or IC and military observers? Those with academic affiliations? Where did they all go and what would be the best way to reach out and extend an invitation to return?

And what constitutes a situation deserving of their time and participation? Is the archive enough? How exactly do people within the paradigm most desire to define a community? Is it amenities, humanity or simply population size for exposure? Most of the special guests have been emailed and have expressed that population size for exposure is what most motivates them. But not all. Long-time member Dan Smith has other priorities and values motivating his participation. Should this open opportunities for unattached junior guests who have experience and dialog to contribute to the world? How best to make use of OMF's time, experience and resources?

Many skeptics would like to see the historical guardian of discourse opportunity to just up and disappear; go into permanent stasis. They think that not everyone has a right to speak about their experiences and if there is no proof involved then there can philosophically be no value to discourse. I personally would respectfully disagree with them. Discourse has always been the prelude to meaningful relationships and meaningful mutual relationships have always been the prelude to exchanges of proof. In a contentious social environment with regards to communication vs disclosure how do we best re-establish a haven for those preludes? Is it only the "if we build it they will come" answer? Well considering OMF has been largely fully functional over the last four or five months this line of reasoning is not necessarily true. So what would be the best way re-establish this? Your suggestions are sought. Please comment.

Ok since it is officially 2:44 AM here I'm going to post one more weird one....  is it any wonder I have a quirky way of looking at the world?  Which reflects which?  My world view reflects my music or the music reflects me?  Lyics:  There a hole in the middle of it all!  And the bang caused...

lol.  Oh no!  Not another cup of coffee!




This is the story a long time ago...we are the universe watching itself...uh oh.  Help me heal a shaky world, conscious evolution is our goal!  This is our story!

Hi Troy,

leaving the forum for good over a simple misunderstanding (acknowledged as crass), but easy to correct and atone on the part of the offender?

Why so easily burn bridges, my friend?  Doesn't make sense to me.

But then I've lived at various points on the totem pole where its a survival mandate to find ways to solve problems with others around me in the interests of a mutual good.

I know you have enjoyed this forum as a place to relax and share your thoughts...it seems a shame to be so quick to throw that investment away.  You are a valued member of this community.  I very much enjoy your posts and your taste in music.  It's classy.

Cy

Thank you Signman,  I appreciate your sincere apology.

When a man's word is given in sincerity it carries great weight and value.  It's a rare thing in today's day and age.

And it takes strength to accept a sincerely given apology.  Shall we call this good?  What more is truly required in the interest of problem solving and mutual good?

Given all the talk of judgement day around here, I found it odd this song came on this morning while I was listening to music my wife put on. Synchronicity.

Lyrics:
I got a kindhearted woman, do anything in this world for me
I got a kindhearted woman, do anything in this world for me
But these evil-hearted women, man, they will not let me be

I love my baby, my baby don't love me
I love my baby, my baby don't love me
But I really love that woman, can't stand to leave her be

Ain't but the one thing, makes Mister Johnson drink
I's worried about how you treat me, baby, I begin to think
Oh, babe, my life don't feel the same
You breaks my heart, when you call Mister So-and-So's name

She's a kindhearted woman, she studies evil all the time
She's a kindhearted woman, she studies evil all the time
You well's to kill me, as to have it on your mind

This was sung to me by a choir of dozens of people in my dreams one night, and I knew all of them represented Jesus.
