This forum has been opened, not for the purpose of fostering discussion, but rather to ensure the continuance of our sanctum by having a mechanism by which we may keep the club from dormant status. That mechanism is what is called, in common parlance, a 'bump.'

-- BUMP! --

Please kindly refrain from bothering one another.
