A Blogger forum does not offer an ideal platform for spontaneity; it has its technical limitations--for example, if you want to edit or delete your comments, you cannot, and you cannot start threads or post articles, unless you have been invited and been accepted as a member of this blog.
However, I have been an admin on a standard forum, and I must tell you: it was a nightmare, one that I do not wish to repeat (trolls, spammers, porners, etc.) so I thought I would try using Blogger, which now offers a lot of cool widgets and templates. And as I have become much more adept with the Blogger format, the site will be fairly easy to navigate.
It also offers me more control over what gets posted on this site, which is a very specialized one having to do with twins and practical issues surrounding twinning. In other words, this is not a political site, nor is it an "anything goes" site.
As admin/owner, I get to decide what is appropriate for posting.
Having said this, I tend not to have a twitchy finger when it comes to the delete button. I don't mind controversy and disagreement among commentators, but I do expect two things: basically staying on topic (twins!) and being respectful of others.
What will be deleted from this site:
--Comments with outside links.Two final items:Sorry, but I have no way of knowing where that link will take readers.--Off topic comments
--Advertising and general spam
--Accusations (false and/or unproven)
