This board is not the OUCH website - it's seperate.
While I have joined OUCH, I can understand why people haven't. I myself prefer not to join such things. I have never been the member of a club in my life before. I simply don't like them because inevitably they attract amatuer politicians hungry for power and a mandate to dictate to other people.
OUCH isn't like that... yet! Perhaps the pain of CH helps by reminding people that life is too short for that sort of nonsense. I have to admit there is much less crap goes on here than virtually anywhere, and that's one of the reasons I hang around. I get to say what I want without being lectured about swearing like fuck :)
I gave my 25 quid to OUCH. I'm not sure what they are going to do with it yet. I won't be involved in that decision. In my opinion the 25 quid pales into insignificance next to my input on shrooms and LSD. There are lots of people here who may or may not be members of OUCH, but who have spent more than $25 of their time helping others. If people choose not to join then that's their business.
I too am shocked at how few have joined though. I wish more would. I can assure them than unlike CH, joining OUCH IS painless!
