There has been a lot of discussion lately about the new site and it's drawbacks. I just want to add that many things are better than the old site. For me, most notable is the Group Postings. When I post on a Group I'm convinced I'm not talking to myself. The Group Discussions appear where more folks can see them and then decide if they want to become a part of the Group or comment on the Discussion.

Before the move I was in around 10 Groups but wasn't much motivated to go there because folks never indicated that they even saw what was written. So the less I went the less I went! I don't have a lot of time since I work full time but I try to use my time effectively. As in all Discussions there are probably more readers than writers but we also see new members in the Groups without having to invite non-stop to make sure they know about it's existence.

So kudos to the EX Team on this aspect! Some things I miss terribly like message boards but there is generally a tradeoff with any change in Life and I believe that relationships can become established here in ways maybe different but just as effectively as the old way! Quitting Smoking has no trade offs - it's a WIN WIN all the way!
