 :( So many of the old  sites are slowly fading away. Young folks are into other forms of social media. Did you know that Youtube is filled with Youtube made celebrities, who draw more viewer than a traditional tv series. Advertisers seek out those folk to get access to their 'clicks.'

I'm not sure band is what it use to be. All the conference restrictions did not help at all.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>

 

Please consider supporting our efforts to foster free and open discussion of current issues as they relate to the topics you are interested in.
