"This comment should be in the Chaff Forum but someone turned the lights off - down there- "
I've come across references like this a number of times. What exactly did BPL do? The Chaff branch is still there. Is it because I browse directly from the Forum Index (and not from Recent Posts link) that I haven't noticed any difference?"
It used to be that if you clicked on "Recent Posts" (on the right) which is all I ever did, it included chaff. Recently this changed and when you click that you don't get chaff posts.
At the same time "Recent Chaff Posts" and "Recent Chaff Threads" have been added (up above) so you can get your chaff fix that way.
I never read any notice or explanation of this change, just figured it out. I assume it's because people complained about all the chaff posts, so BPL being a user friendly/oriented site, these changes were made : )
Maybe some of the comments about guns and BSA policy precipitated it? One thing unfortunate about the BSA policy, is BSA is about experiences for kids, and it's too bad to ruin that with other issues.
