Itís a mistake to join RD and expect an echo chamber. The important thing is to state your opinions. If someone agrees, great. If not, great too. RD was never intended to endorse this opinion or that one. Have the courage of your convictions: state your opinion and move on. If you wait for the applause, you will always be disappointed.
that's exaclty right, Dio
sometimes you have page-long lively discussions with multiple posters if a subject is interesting. And sometimes you may feel like you talk to yourself. Doesn't mean that people don't read the posts, they might just not feel they need to respond then and there. Just post your opinion, observation, etc. and move on.
This is what I love about RD. It flows naturally....well, most of the time.
