.... I’d rather we all talked more.
I hear what you are saying.

I'm willing to talk more.

I've been shy and reticent for too long around here. It's time I came out of my shell, and with your encouragement, I think I can do it.
So you have to ask from mother, "Who is my father?" And if she says, "This gentleman is your father," then it is all right. It is easy.

Thanks buddy! That's me and the Goofs. I thought I'd get a more recent picture up.

Depends on who you ask at any given time.

Personally I'd worry that having a like button might start to erode the amount of conversations. Perhaps I've read too much dystopian fiction but I worry about a slide into button pushing instead of longform contributions.
COMPLETELY agree. Can't stand all the little social media-like trappings. I prefer people engaging in real conversations instead of reducing them to buttons.
