The only way I see for ECafe to work is first to put an end to the anonymous posters and commentators. Readers don't need to know exact names of the posters/commentators, but they need to know what jurisdiction and their rank.
I suggest that each jurisdiction be given its own forum. Anyone can read, but only verified members in good standing of that jurisdiction may post/comment or moderate.
This would put an end to Barbara's blather. She claims to be in RTOC? That is a joke. She is not even Christian:
No more private forums. If it is that private, they need a different venue such as a Yahoo Group.
Inquirers, catechumens, and newly-baptized need to be excluded from posting/commenting.
