Undisclosed test, mate.

I can't imagine Harvard opening any more doors than Stanford.  If you want to be in CA and you think you'll be happy there, go to Stanford.

I'm so glad this thread exists! I'm in the same situation and boy does it stink beyond belief...

Ok, I hope that was a joke.


Yeah, really...

OK my story:

I have a group of about 12 really tight friends who I graduated with.  We're all black engineers or architects.  We came into college together and left together and even though we're spread out all over the country currently, we talk everyday like we're still on the yard.  :P Anyway, a little while back, (before my law school days) we got together and were walking through a certain mall in suburbia, all 12 of us.  We're all prepped out in kahki's and sweater vests and button ups with blazers etc. looking about as intimidating as 12 Ushers or something.  So anyway, we're walking through this mall for maybe 5 minutes right, and these 2 security guards walk up to us and tell us there's a problem.  We politely ask what the problem is.  They tell us that we're going to have to break up the group because, now get this, the number in our group is too intimidating and it makes the shoppers "uncomfortable."  (there's that word again).  They wanted us to break up into 4 groups of 3 and stagger behind each other so as not to make it seem like we were together.  This, they assured us, would allow the other shoppers to feel more "comfortable."

 :-\  :o  ???  :-X  :D

So whenever I hear somebody say something like "it potentially makes A LOT of people uncomfortable" I have to laugh because it always makes me think back to that mall and how completely rediculous people can be sometimes.

Goodness!  And you know, the sad thing about it is the security guards probably didn't even realize how racist they were being.  And in all fairness, how'd you get ELEVEN dudes to go to the mall all at once!  I can barely get one to go! :D

And to all folks who play the "white" card -- yeah, that one, the one where you pull it out and say "Well how would you feel if there was a WET TV channel!  Or how would you feel if there was a WLSD!"  It's funny, because everyone thinks it's the trump card.  It's not.  It doesn't work, it's never worked, and it never will work.  Folks, it's different and you know it.  It's different because of both (a) the history of such organizations, and (b) the fact that an overwhelming majority doesn't need such a group.  I plead with you, give it up. ;) ;D

My broader point is that we would all be better off if we knew each other better; that having separate child-boards defined by identity discourage this familiarity for a host or reasons; and that we should care about this, and seek to integrate ourselves better - something that I believe would be better achieved through an intermingling of our threads.

I don't think anybody disagrees with where your heart is on this one.  I think we ALL want to see a world where we integrate ourselves better.  But the key difference I'm seeing is whether one believes that having child boards, like BLSD, works against this goal.  You believe it does.  I believe it doesn't.  Nevertheless, it's true that there are many posters that post almost exclusively on BLSD.  It's too bad, but nobody can force them to post elsewhere if they don't want to or don't feel the need to.  This is an example of where we need more integration.  But I think it's more a function of the poster than of BLSD itself.

Like Burning said, if there were no BLSD, certain parts of the board and certain threads would become a de facto BLSD just by virtue of the salient topics that some people discuss more than others.  That's not going to change anytime soon, and we might as well keep the discussion organized by having the child board.
