I'm tired of it. I came to this forum 8-9 years ago because I expected Thom might visit his own forums... and he did... or someone posted in his name. But it's clear since the creation of the Blogs, Thom doesn't even have visit the forum anymore. And I don't recall him ever responding to any posts or blog responses anyway. (But we KNOW he reads posts at the Democratic Underground... so do we have to go there?)
Thom does a two way talk program... but what's the point of having a forum when it's all one way if it's even that? It's REALLY frustrating when I repeatedly posted corrections to something Thom's said only to have him repeat the bad information over and over.
OK... Thom's a busy guy.
None the less, while we have this thread purported to be dedicated to questions http://www.thomhartmann.com/forum/2011/07/big-picture-thom-hartmann-program-air-questions-or-comments-thom I've never heard any of those questions answered on the show. And I've never watched the Big Picture.
Instead of a thread with 775 posts, I'd like to see a new forum dedicated to posing questions/raising issues that Thom WILL respond to on the radio... not all, of course. There will be some stupid, redundant, and gotcha questions. Staff can sort them out. To go along with the new forum would require a new segment in the show as well... not a once a week 1 min Geeky Science segment... but 5-10 mins a day. I don't see this as that difficult to accomplish. I believe Thom owes some feedback to the loyal members of his own forum and not just callers.
I also think the forum should be limited to single posts. This would prevent new posts from being buried as active threads are pushed up as happens in the forums. So can threads be locked yet still give the author a chance to edit mistakes?
