Welcome to the forum.

About 30 of us migrated here from Amazon back in February, and a couple more have been trickling in since.
Much higher class place; you'll like it here.
Here's a link to a kind of on-going Amazonian news thread I started a while back, as a place for refugees to touch base -- TTA is a BIG forum:

Amazonians Swim With Piranha

Welcome to TTA. Smile

I didn't see the announcement. But several posters said that a box announcing that Amazon Discussions would be closed on Oct. 6 appeared on their pages for awhile. I never saw it, but several people posted that they saw it. We will see what happens. The place is basically a ghost town anyway. I really enjoyed it in its heyday, before Amazon started deleting posts and banning discussants.

Welcome.

I think you will find that banning here is infrequent but deserved when it happens. One hard and fast rule is that posts aren't deleted unless the poster is able to quickly get in and say 'oops' or 'double post' or something such as that before their time to edit runs out. About the only deletions here by the admin or mods are the rare cases of porn being posted and it's always explained.

It's a good group here and many of the Amazonians have settled in nicely. Hopefully you will like it here. We do have room for a few theists... Tongue

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Any Christians over there looking for a place to go?

Are you going to tell them where to go? Consider

Here it is:

"The Amazon forums are retiring October 6, 2017.

Amazon would like to thank the members of this community for contributing to the discussion forums. As we grow and evolve, we encourage you to explore Goodreads Groups for books and Spark for other ways to engage with your interests."
