James {riverrat},

I've posted and read in {Nature_and_environment} since its inception,
and my thoughts are (a) it is a socio-politically oriented forum, and
should remain as such, and (b) it has always had a very low level of
participation, and that is not likely to change until the Cafe draws
a lot more participants.

To elaborate on point (a), I don't think mixing together eco-social
and eco-political talk under one roof with outdoors recreation makes
very good sense for the Cafe. Outdoor recreation and eco-
social/political concerns have in common, oftentimes, a love of
nature and the outdoors, but this is about all of the overlap they
have. I like the {Nature_and_Environment} forum as it is, and
wouldn't want to alter it in any way other than to encourage more
participants to gather and talk there. And it seems that there are
plenty of people here who have expressed agreement with the notion
that an outdoor recreation forum would be an enhancement to the Cafe.
