With regret, this isn't a community I'm interested in being a part of. See some of you elsewhere.
I tried out this group to see if it was something I was interested in. After a year of being a part of it, I can say that it's not. I don't feel particularly obligated to contribute more than that, sorry -- there are already other groups that I've committed to and am actively interested in.
If my thoughts don't resonate with others in the group, that's fine. If others in the group feel the same and this group shifts, maybe I'll be back.
Finally, because of the odd way Google manages these groups, I can only comment (even on my own post) if I'm part of the group. I re-joined to post this reply, but I won't be re-joining again, so if you have anything else to share you'll have to message me on my profile directly.
Good luck with the group.
