Default Where Is Everybody?

Hmmm - that title sounds a bit like the first Twilight Zone episode!

Since the new moderated group was created (whose mission was to
improve communication and raise the bar on decency over the Policy
group), everyone seems to have disappeared. The moderated group is
virtually dead, containing primarily bulletins from Amateur groups
around the world and the odd post hare and there....and the Policy
group has degenerated into a "Mark vs the World" quagmire - quite
unfortunately for Mark.

With the exception of Dave Heil, who pops up from behind the ramparts
here occasionally to take a well placed shot at his old nemesis Mr.
Wiseman, no one seems to be left from the old crowd who regularly
discoursed in this group. Even N2EY's regular "ARS Numbers" posts
seem to have vanished into oblivion.

Just wondering - what's up with Len, Mike,Dave, Jim, Brian, Steve,
Dee, Kim, and the rest of the old regulars on the group? Hope all is
well!

I'm here. I'm not interested in .moderated.

I do post some on-topic stuff, but no one wants to discuss it. For
example, the ARRL gets it's own MARS call:

-------------------------------------------------
ARRL Receives MARS Call Sign
The ARRL now has a new Emergency Communications tool in its toolbox --
MARS call sign AAN1ARL. According to W1AW Station Manager Joe Carcia,
NJ1Q, "The call sign was requested to reflect both the holder of the
license (ARRL) and the various MARS services (Army, Air Force and
Navy)."

The MARS station will be housed at W1AW, the Hiram Percy Maxim
Memorial Station. ARRL Emergency Preparedness and Response Manager
Dennis Dura, K2DCD, said, "The establishment of an Army MARS call sign
for W1AW begins a relationship with the Military Affiliate Radio
System and the ARRL. Our two organizations are working toward the near-
term establishment of a Memorandum of Understanding. Additionally, the
League and MARS will utilize each other's personnel and technical
capabilities to further enhance our emergency preparedness and
response capabilities."

The MARS program consists of licensed Amateur Radio operators who are
interested in military communications on a local, national and
international basis as an adjunct to normal communications. MARS has a
long and proud history of providing worldwide auxiliary emergency
communications during times of need. The combined three service MARS
programs (Army, Air Force, and Navy-Marine Corps) volunteer force of
more than 5000 dedicated and skilled Amateur Radio operators is the
backbone of the MARS program. There are Army MARS stations in Japan,
Korea, Hawaii, Panama, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Alaska,
Central America, Africa, Germany and the continental United States.
MARS responders operate on specially assigned military radio
frequencies in voice, teletype and packet modes of communications.

The perverts have rein--however, what is new, the same thing has
happened to my city ... :-(

Besides, it seems that policy was not an interest, it was just a "stated
ruse" to allow the CW Proclaimers to have voice and attempt to maintain
control.

Good question. Do you think they are just callsign collecting, or do
you think they knowingly placed themselves into DoD service?

Sadly they grew upset that folks who weren't code advocates found a
voice on policy, so they created a moderated group to exclude the no-
coders. After the initial back-slapping, they found that they didn't
have much to say to each other.
