I say SURE. There are at least a couple of people over "yonder" who seem smart and therefore frustrated from the trolls and rednecks they have to deal with there, and may well prefer to switch.

What about us uneducated, working class simpletons? Should the forum not be a reflection of the general population?

Dumb people shouldn't be allowed to speak.  They say dumb things.  They don't add to the debate, they hinder it.

Uneducated and working class are not mutually exclusive.  These days you can give yourself a PHD equivalent with only an IP address.

My grandfather was a labourer and self-taught.  He would have called you a peasant.

Well, they ARE boring and a waste of time.  But if they're nice they can be ok.

True enough, I wasted all that time striking the apostrophe key unnecessarily. And I'll also admit I used "spellchecker" to get the number of letters necessary to spell "unnecessarily" correctly.
Whew, I need a break.
