That's not at all what I was suggesting. However, here's another suggestion: Two new subforums. One called "Debates" and one called "Exchange." Calling a forum "Debates" would allow people who don't...

Need to redefine how much we need

Implied in "using less energy" is a major shift in attitude away from our consumer culture---the idea that more is better, bigger is better. You say you have "boats" in the plural. Is one boat not...
