Comments: GS: fringe meetings

Am I just being a clueless Yank here, or is there something rhetorically, um, unfortunate, in calling yourself a "fringe group"?

(In American English, "fringe group" is not something you want your group known as---and it's certainly NOT the way I see Changing Attitude! ;-/)

"Fringe event" is a common term here to describe meetings that occur in connection with, but not part of the official agenda of a conference, any conference meeting.

Perhaps I have confused the issue by using the word "group". I will change the title of the article.
