I think a quicker way to get Shroomery news is to just come to the website and look around.

I don't see how a mailed newsletter would be any easier.

one of your worst ideas yet. (and that's pretty bad as 95% of you suggestions are horrible imo) the shroomery collecting a huge list of members address would make people paranoid and possibly make some people leave because they think it's all a conspiracy maaaannn. not that any LEO would give a shit about the lists but people are wierd here. not to mention paper and postage costs, time printing it, jesus the more i think the more stupid i see it is. i hope this is a joke or something.

I do believe he was talking about only mailing it to supporters, and not the entire Shroomery registry.

That doesn't mean I think it's a good idea, though.

How about a quarterly email newsletter to all members, and you are the responsible editor?

I write all the time so I'd be glad to help out on a project like that. Could have somebody fancy it up in HTML since all-text e-mail is so 1999.

IMO better a "so 1999" newsletter than none at all. But we are open for suggestions.

Yeah the 1999 comment was just me being stoned at work at 8:30 AM and desperately needing my coffee. But yeah I agree.

Kinkos will allow a newsletter (with that special paper) to be produced? Can you give me an idea on the cost?

Not many people (me included) would want to give over their mailing address..

i just give my honest opinion, sorry (not really) if that makes you think I'm an asshole. do you think this is a good idea? do you think any of the shroomery's funds should go towards paper, printing, postage, ect. for this project? do you think it's a good idea to send it regular mail when anyone here obviously has internet which is anonymous, dosn't require expenise printing and postage, dosn't require a physical address and drug related letters sent to a residence? The only use for regular mail nowadays is for people who don't have internet (i.e. not people here) or for physical objects that cannot be transfered electronically (i.e. not words or for instance a newsletter) If you want a physical copy of a newsletter you can print it yourself. I cannot see how anyone would not agree this is a dumb idea, unless of course they themselves are dumb. And read some of his previous ideas. to me at least, a lot of them are foolish and/or impratical.

I wasn't talking about your dismissal of the idea are being a jerk. It was the way you said it and pretty much the way you say anything that I've seen you post in this forum.

(and that's pretty bad as 95% of you suggestions are horrible imo)

I'm pretty sure that wasn't necessary at all. Unless you have some ideas or something so contribute, I don't see why you should treat someone with some ideas like that.

Get the chip off your shoulder.

sometimes things just need to be said. if for instance i'm an artist and i really really suck, but everyone i show my work to is all nice and like, oh yeah, that's not bad blah blah. i might think i'm good when the reality is i suck. that's counter-productive to my own good. i think this guys ideas suck, i told him so. i may have been able to put it nicer but i didn't. i'm sure he'll live. that's my contribution.

and i'm done, don't want to get this guys post locked :stoned:
