Peace Omowale Jabali,
I agree that this is not a site focused-on nor consisting of serious pan-africanism. But it doesn't claim to be. I have to wonder.. Considering the history of Pan Africanism as a movement.. is the public web discussion circuit really a viable format for serious Pan African efforts?
In answering your question, obviously "public web discussion" is not really a viable format. This is why I ask people what organizations they are building so that I can do some serious networking, instead of online debating. That is why I mentioned brother rapchild. I took him seriously when no one else did and in turn I was invited to become a member of his organization, and from there I founded a local chapter of the same organization based in Accra, Ghana.
I use these threads to share information and bounce around ideas with friends and associates in my inner circle of Brothers, all of which have a mutual respect for each other and mutual trust because we all are activists with constituencies.
So, for me, and I am only speaking for myself, a discussion board is just that, and when spamming and trolling takes over then that forum loses its viability.
I know you know what I'm talking about and I don't have to spell it out to you.
