Would you like to join the class forum?
Here are the rules:
The Class of '66 Forum is for the exchange of ideas, contacts,
reminiscences, opinions, information, etc. that may be of common
interest to classmates, their wives, and their widows. Currently we
ahve about 250 classmtes on the lsit. You can join the daily '66 Forum,
or you can join the Forum Digest, which sends you periodically a list
of the emails posted, along with subject and sender.
*IMPORTANT*: This is a CLOSED forum: what is said on the Forum stays on
this Forum. You may not quote someone and send it off Forum without the
express consent of the originator. Nor may you forward Forum messages
to anyone else- not even classmates who are not members of the Forum,
or who are suspended from same. This is to protect the privacy of our
thoughts and to allow us to freely express them without fear of them
getting out to the public. Accepting membership to this Forum requires
acceptance and compliance of this provision as part of the Terms of
Unlike the AOG's distro '66 list (used for class
business), I have set up this Forum to allow articles, photos, and
short videos (up to 4MB) to be attached. Whenever possible, the use of
URL's instead of attachments is preferred, in order to save bandwidth
and download time.
We are all gentlemen (and ladies) and we can disagree, but should do so
without rancor. We also don't use the worst of language, but
since we're all grownups, it's OK to use the occasional Bad Word,
since, Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.
If things start to get out of hand on a topic, I will call a cease
work. When I call cease work, it means just what it did when we were
cadets. Ignoring a cease work, or being grossly uncivil, will lead to
temporary suspension; emotions and spirited disagreements are fine.
Insults are not. The time period of a suspension depends on the gravity
of the offense and the number of prior offenses. So far, only a couple
have had to sit "virtual con" for awhile.
There is always a delicate balance between keeping a Forum relevant and
open, and the traffic at a manageable level. Many of you have resolved
the problem by having me change your address to a separate one you set
up just for Forum traffic, or switching to a home, vice work, address,
or requesting a temporary suspension while away for awhile. I am happy
to do this for anyone who wants.
If you want to contact a classmate, let me know and I'll send you his
address if he or she is on the Forum. Membership in this Forum implies
consent to give your address out to classmates only- but if you object
to that you can contact me and so state and I will not share your
*When you hit the "Reply" (or the "Reply All") button to answer a post
it goes to the entire Forum.* To send a message to an individual, copy
his email address and post to him only. Messages to the Forum should
