For that kind of money, I will voluntarily stop posting kooky stuff! {8^D

But what if newbies are *attracted* by the kookiness of extropians? Im not talking about UFOs or consipiracy theories here, for there are good internet sites already for that sort of thing. But much of what we discuss with all seriousness here is waaay kooky to normal people who have never been exposed to it, such as cryonics, omega point, utility fog, wearable computers etc. Then we would lose the kooky newbies. Of course, that might be Brian's point.... {8^D spike
