  Hi Marcin and others,

I also don't like any of the social media groups and if dealers,
collectors and buyers want to know what I am selling they have to come
here or to me. My problem is our meteorite community keeps moving
things around (probably for commercial reasons) rather than actually
having a consistent center to simply discuss meteorites.

  So my vote is to have discussions here. I'd like to pledge some more
commitment to posting here once in a while (one or two times per
month?). Also if we can put our petty differences aside and simply
discuss meteorites, we can have an enjoyable forum here. We don't have
to always agree or disagree, but respectful discussion can go a long
way to bringing more people into the hobby, unlike the past which drove
people away.f

My two chondrules.
