At one point in history, online discussion forums were the big thing. In the days when the BBS ruled digital communication, forums were about the only thing we had. Well that, and Fidonet echos.
When the Internet came about, forums exploded. These days, they are so poorly ran, usually by narrow-minded Taliban wanna-bes who can't stand the least thing that offends their world view, that they are unusable by anyone who has an ounce of ability to think for themselves. God forbid that someone post anything that might offend the forum admin's delicate sensibilities.
A while back, maybe a year or more, I had a run in with one of these self-righteous types. Of course, I lost, but I made up my mind that if it happened again, I was going to bail. My time is precious to me, and even though I now have more of it than I did then, it's still precious. So when my post referencing Mountain Guerrilla was yanked, I asked a different admin what was up. The response was an "I don't know" followed by direction to contact that same self-righteous admin, I decided that it was time.
So now, for the first time since I've owned a computer, I'm not active on any sort of discussion forum. This is going to feel a little weird for a while.
