CRL's Mission: 530 Sieverts Conversation
#21
Thanks Pia, for all that you do and thanks to Lucas for providing this site.  I’ve found CRL useful for posting pictures, video, and in-depth content that won’t easily fit into those small comment boxes on most sites; where a link back to a topic on CRL can be squeezed in.  The CRL thread topic can then be used as a reference for easily sharing the information with others to reach a wider audience.  Rad Radio may not have known, as I didn’t at first, many of the daily visitors coming to CRL are leaders and professionals that already know quite a bit about nuclear energy and are looking for pertinent information to share with their organizations and readerships.  When a thread drifts too far off-topic all the information can get lost in the noise.  Rad Radio contributed good commentary to discuss the astounding 530 Sievert reading taken in the pcv of unit 2; unfortunately, he then raised a couple too many other topics in that thread.  It’s easy to get carried away sometimes and not know when to stop; I have been guilty of that myself.  It would have been more considerate to our audience to start new threads for the affordable detectors, radiation protections, and the climate change that he sees as worse than the Fukushima meltdowns, where we could then discuss different opinions; elaborate on our points of view; and then be able to refer links back to specific threads and posts without derailing the day’s headliner topic.  Further, the suggestions and criticism of the site could have been posted in the New User or General Discussion areas without the personal attacks.  I personally think Rad Radio owes Pia an apology for the diatribe that led to the creation of this particular thread.  I would like to see more of Rad Radio’s valuable information and discussion added to CRL without the new childish signature that he adopted.

Thanks for defining various aspect of the issues. I really appreciate your analytically derived suggestions. I wasn't apparently thinking beyond cleaning up the 530 Sv thread and noting the collegial atmosphere we wish to inspire among others. Your input is inspiring.

Thanks for cleaning up that thread, I wanted to link to it at another site. Learning is fun. Let's see who wants to play.

The following comments have been moved from the post about former TEPCO executives trial in June 2017.

When posting a link, why don't you also give us your thoughts about it?  Huh

Want my dedication... for the right compensation - I can adjust.  My "job" as I see it, is to share what I find and that's all I can do.

Then close the site down.  This is not about compensation. 

I never click on a link that has no description.  Sorry if I offended you, but you seem a bit touchy.   Maybe that's why more people don't come here.  ?

I never discuss my pain.  

Later, all.

That's ridiculous, Chasaha. First, it isn't my site to shut down - I'm only an admin and the owner has not expressed any issues with my practice. Second, there are a lot of visits by people who are not members - the site has merit and shutting it down would be the wrong thing to do. Some threads have more than 5,000 views. There's a couple that have more than 10,000 views and many have more than a few hundred views. Views increase demonstrably when I tweet contributors' posts.

If you don't want to click on links without a description, that's your prerogative. I personally don't take issue with posts without comment because headlines and sources evident at the front end of links have value to me. If a source is known for wild exaggerations or fear-mongering, I won't click on it. But, if a source is known for it's accuracy and meritorious contributions to the "information" bank, there's no reason not to click on it. It's a choice people need to make based on their world view. I am sorry you don't want to click on links without comments.

I'm not offended, only being honest - I don't need compensation, but can adjust my practice if compensated because that's what adding physical therapy to my life would require. If my honesty is a problem for you, or others, then perhaps that's something you, or they, need to contemplate. It's kind of funny, your assertion, sounds a lot like Rad Radio. I refrain from criticizing others because that isn't what this site is about and I'd sure hate to see what happens at ENENews become evident here. And, I refrain from a lot of typing on a regular basis because it causes pain, plain and simple. It's just the way it is.

If you want more people to come, and be active here, then perhaps you can help with the social media marketing. I can only do so much. In the near future, I will move this conversation to CRL's mission.

It doesn't bother me that people sometimes appear to forget who our collective nuclear "target" is. I do think, though, that it's a lot to demand a disabled person exceed their capacity and to shut down this site.

So, I think I've made this clear before (or something like it), but I don't mind saying it again:

If you think this forum needs more activity, please step up and contribute more, ask your friends to join in. Invite others who may be unaware to visit, read and respond. Comparing this site to what happens at ENENews may be the crux of the problem. Try thinking of CRL as a Nuclear News, Data, and Technology Resource Center - a place for curious minds to see nuclear from a variety of angles.

As a wise friend has said:

"We fight nukes not each other"
