'Unaccustomed as I am' ....... I would love to know what value, if any, people place on being part of a 'chatroom clique'. Or, are they, quite simply, a figment of other chatters' imaginations? You've all seen how the 'herd community' operates in chatrooms by jointly attack/defending particular chatters, but have you ever considered that you might be part of that herd community yourself? I often quote the phrase, 'safety in numbers' which itself would compound that a herd community is inevitable. An individual often feels safer when others appear to share the same view as they do. On this occasion, I am proposing a 'survey'. The choice is yours.
