Quotable Members on Homepage?

What is the selection process in displaying the posts of "quotable members" on the org's homepage? And why are all of the quotes so damned grimly negative? I mean, you want to mix it up a bit. Give some harsh criticism of Prince along with a little bit of honest smoozing. I just don't understand why all of the posts from the "quotable members" are all negative and this is supposed to be a darn fan-site. err

Do they like ever rotate?

Although I'm your biggest fan...I'm also your biggest critic. Can you deal with that?

It depends on who's posting the quotes. Some of us like to reflect a positive note like admiration of certain songs, and/or shows, etc. Others like to bring Prince down to reality a peg to remind him that he's still human, and does make mistakes. I'll look into finding some balance. Thanks for noticing, though.

I think that would benefit not only the front page but the org overall ~ Thank you
