Thank *you*, Ian, for keeping this BBS alive. And for giving it the throwback name "BBS"
I'm an old-time geek, I cut my teeth programming in assembly language on an 80x24 monchrome TTY and using cassette tapes for storage.
Ain't nothin' wrong with keeping the BBS alive, keeping the archive of all these posts, and who knows, maybe this will be a safety net of sorts when Facebook turns in-your-face Evil

A poor attempt to distract with an irrelevant (and untrue) statement.  The claim is still deceptive...
Could be worse. At least this is accepted, common fraudulent behavior. Not like "notfatanymore.com"

I'm making an active effort to migrate some of my Facebook conversations back over here and hoping others will do the same.
Every forum that I used to frequent has turned into a dust bowl as Facebook surges forward.

There are very good reasons for that.
Facebook thrives thanks to Metcalfe's Law. In part because there is just the one FB that is where (virtually) everyone has an account. If you're not on FB, you're in a walled garden or rareified specialist enclave. You're a teen posting nude selfies, for example, so you go to Tumblr. Or you're talking exclusively about illegal drugs, in which case you're on a SR or other Torified discussion forum. Or you're bitching about the gubmint and talking about illegal drugs and guns, in which case you're here. But any of those inherently involve screening out lots of people, so it can be "just us" having a somewhat more private conversation. Meanwhile, anything that doesn't need to be so private, that does benefit from a FOAF or your Uncle Bill jumping in, well... all those attention cycles are on FB now.

BTW, for legal reasons I have been off FB for neatly two years. Any day now, (meaning sometime between tomorrow and in ~3 months), a judge will sign a piece of paper and I will no longer be in legal limbo and then I can finally rejoin the land of the living, and can reinstate my FB. Oh, I cannot wait for that day....

We can outlast facebook.   8)
Seriously... I believe that is likely. FB will be very very popular. Until it isn't. Something better and hipper will come along.
But SMF forums... are built to last, baby

Less hot than I would have imagined, actually

A few years too late, I'm afraid. This BBS is a ghost town now. I was something, once. Now all that is left ... is tumbleweeds and dust.

Go to Facebook. I hear it's more active there

+1 cool  8)

No matter what happens to Morgan Freeman or what part he is playing, he's always ALWAYS Easy Reader, to me.

Uh, uh, uh.

Common problem with web things. Hosting services get the same problem. Super fast at first then lots of people sign up and service gets crummy

When the sailman's sailing away
He shows that the dream of Lemuria is true
A land lost he will find again
Hear the call from the depth of the anemone song
Do you dare to enter the ship?
Hear the call from below of an underwater world
Land of Mu is close to the stars
In the arms of the sea you will live as hypnotized

There are times I see something on the internet, and I'm profoundly glad that I'm not stoned.
This was one of those times.

Gun to your head. You MUST fuck one. Left or right?

I'll take left.
Knowing you, I *know* it's a TARP.
I'm guessing left is the most manly-looking creature with a vijay on Planet Earth, and on the right is a ladyboy.

Ummm you didn't specify the nature of the fucking AND THERE IS A GUN TO MY HEAD so I might go with between the boobs of the pretty but presumably trap right-hand-side. Because even if it has a vajayjay the individual on the left is simply too much like Ron Weasley's sick cousin for me to even contemplate
