Is it possible to add a new Forum on Intelligence & Espionage?

Recommended Posts

I'd love to see a new Forum here on Intelligence and Espionage. The JFK forum often touches on this, as do others. It would be a place to discuss controversial cases in intelligence history, new issues involving intelligence agencies, the balance between security and liberty, etc.

What say ye?

I think it would be a good idea. I'll bring it to the attention of Andy and John for their consideration.

The problem is that most members only look at certain sections of the forum. As a result, new sections receive very few visitors and debates rarely take place. That is why some members post non-JFK subjects in that section of the forum. Personally, I always access the forum via "Today's Active Topics". However, I appear to be in a minority.

Sounds like a no-go, unfortunately. But it's not that difficult to add a new Forum, is it?

I suspect it might start slow, but it holds the potential of eventually drawing many users. There is not now a good forum anywhere for such discussions. There is one called Final Phase, but it is heavily populated by former intelligence people and CI groupies. I'd love to have a place to debate the Golitsyn-Nosenko affair, the Yurchenko case or other interesting cases, and to get news on new happenings or good new books.

Can I twist your arm a bit??

Why not start it in the "Political Conspiracies" section. That already has a wide readership. I will also be willing to debate the Golitsyn-Nosenko affair with you.

That could be interesting. I take the position that Nosenko was more or less genuine, albeit with a bit of exaggeration of his importance, and that Golitsyn was fabricating to puff his own importance. What say you?
