Talkfreethought about to close down.
Anyone with membership over there that wants to put out an invite?  I know a lot of people there wouldn't like the posting 'standards' we have here, but I suspect a fair number of them might.

They could even have their own subforum if they like. Talkfreethought Refugees. I doubt anyone would bother them much.

As for our posting standards, well, the Charter is what it is.

Also isn't there already a thread about this? Didn't one of them look at TR and decide they didn't like the look of elkarte?

That was one excuse. The other is that this place can be too mean.

The consensus seems to be to go over to Secular Cafe but someone said it looks like that might shut down soon too. Maybe we'll get Shizzle back!  :cheer:

It'd be nice that of all the IIDB successor boards that TR is the one left standing.

Geez, we aren't even a little bit mean anymore. Either that or I've become totally immune to attempts at mean by TR members. Has TR gone soft? :ohmy:

Jobar said lack of activity. He had already been thinking about seeing if TFT wanted to do a merger before all this talk of shutting down TFT began.

This whole thing is weird because a lot of people have come out saying they'd help out financially or be willing to take over running the board but all of a sudden it went from looking for different owners to just shutting down.

Something weird is going on.

no point in taking money to run a dead board.

I had thought TFT was reasonably active still. Haven't looked at SC in ages, so no idea what's going on there.

Did you know that DMB died?  She was very active in supporting it, in lots of different ways.  I was very fond of DMB.

I didn't know that, and am sorry to hear. And yes, she was a mainstay for that board.

I should have posted the news here.

She had a lot of health problems, and was in a lot of pain.  She was very stoical but got really fed up with hurting and being disabled.
