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

Any Christians over there looking for a place to go?

I have no idea.

Another refugee from the Amazon Forums... greets everyone.

As of now, the forums are all gone. Despite its many problems, I'll miss it... it was a good run, but it ended badly (an extended period of no maintenance and erratic, biased moderation).

Looking forward to good conversations here.

Btw, I posted as "Michael Altarriba" when I was there.

Welcome. We have quite a few happy Amazonians here, so I am quite sure you will enjoy the message board.
