More than anything, a good education depends on a good, responsive parent. I wasn't well liked at my kids school, because I wouldn't tow the line. My concern is my children, period.

It seems my thread which was posted inside the 'intentional community' forum is subject to such an attack by a staff member who is posted mocking responses in the thread....is this the purpose of gir-bot?
It sounds like you need to start a new thread in the tinkering forum to talk about a specific thing. Make sure to post a link to the thread and your concerns. Make sure your wording is such that you are seeking understanding and that you are not commanding the volunteer staff to serve you.
But this thread is for talking about gir bot, not about a specific moderation concern.

I don't accept the assertion that because we don't accept one story based in one particular First Nations practice or tradition, that we are guilty of a disrespect of all aboriginal peoples.
The end goals being discussed here, and the community-based methodology, are laudable. We all want free food and energy. I want to hear more about how we get from here to there, and how, exactly, we use community to do it.
If the engraved language is as Tyler says, could we maybe get a translation? I do wonder how it was that ancient knowledge was transferred for thousands of years by word of mouth, and then the invented language of the invaders was used to record it.
I would simply like to see more.
