I cannot remember the last time I have been in the Gwinnett Place Mall.  Several months ago I drove by it on Pleasant Hill Road or Satellite Boulevard.  I think it was several months ago.  It may have been more.  I went into the South DeKalb parking lot back in the spring when changing directions on Flat Shoals.  I also drove by Northlake in the spring.  However, I went into neither of those malls at those times.

Hell, the biggest issue for me is safety.

I think this is an issue at Sharpstown in Houston.  I am not sure.  I have not been near the area in years.

A mall is part of my past. The last few times I was in one, I did not enjoy being there and could not wait to leave. I don't ever see myself doing the mall gain. If I go to an anchor store, that is as far as I'm going. The place is not fun the way it was in my youth.

I go to the mall when I need something. Most times it is to pick up an online order.

No shots fired at the Boca Raton mall. A loud noise and people panicked. Trump and his minions have people in this country so f'ed up, they're afraid of their own shadows.

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>
