I've learned this week just how important the happy threads like Poly Vignettes and the light-weight threads like the word association game, are on here.

They really help to balance out all the pain and anguish that people suffer and remind us that poly can and should be a positive experience. I've also been reminded this week that there is great truth in the idea that what we focus on expands.

Very true. The light-weight threads remind us we are just people who not only need to vent/seek advice when things are going wrong, but also that we need to connect in fun, stress-free ways. This is a community albeit a virtual one, but the connections are important.

"Can polyamory work? Aren't open relationships doomed? Have you got suggestions for beginning on a poly path?"

Really good stuff here from a man in the know... interesting site all around.

http://dirtysurface.com/ask-the-porn...actices-primer

"a miniature polyamory practices primer"

this is an extended version of the previous post... really excellent stuff. I would say a few things a bit differently, but all in all, not much complaints from me; far more "yes!" moments.

This guy is very well written but why do you consider him "in the know" What has he experienced I wonder? What are essentially his practical poly credentials?

I read it and it has great advice..but I didn't see anything about what his experience is. Regardless it's solid suggestions.

Experience matters because it creates a greater sense of validity to a person's advice. That being said it looks like this guy has bare minimum drawn on the experiences of very real people. For most it might not matter. I am not a person who is impressed by someone regurgitating what they read or see..what they do is what creates respect where I am from.
