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.

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.

I didn't know that.  Her loss would be quite a blow to the SC community in so many ways.

May this year. 

She got an MRSA in hospital.  I won't post anything else from that thread, but here is mine:

Quote from: Febble
I just read this news on facebook, where James Bannon posted it.

I'm so sorry to hear this.  I met her in person just once - I stayed as her guest at the University Women's Club in Mayfair, where she was very apologetic (and a bit cross) about the meagre range of malt whiskies available in the bar that night.

I wish it had been more often.  Such  wise and generous and inspiring woman.  And so intelligent.

I was almost glad to know it had been a rapid but natural death.  I didn't like the idea of her choosing to end her life, much as I respected it.  She was too valuable to too many!

My condolences to everyone here.  You will all miss her so much.

I hope so. I sure do miss his keen political insight!

It would be REALLY nice if there was a viable choice other than what outside the US would be considered far right wing and moderate right wing...
Every General election it's like a choice between getting a cucumber shoved up your ass and getting a sword coated in salt, vinegar and hot sauce shoved up your ass. Bernie Sanders - or Socialist or Communist would be "not getting anything shoved up your ass."
I'm frankly sick of choosing between the lesser of 2 evils. I want to be able to vote for someone who wants to DESTROY Wall Street and preferably make Capitalism illegal and execute all the Capitalists and redistribute their money.

Was shizzle always a tankie?

tankie?  Not familiar with the term. But he's pretty much always been a borderline psychotic with serious issues that he continues to blame on everyone else. He's pretty much what the trumpster fire would be if he had been born into a middle class (? -not rich) family with moderate medical issues.

Hope that helps. ;)

Tankies are the commies who think Stalin did nothing wrong.

one of the local wobs is a tankie yet he's a really good guy oddly enough. it's weird. he always does street medic shit and stuff.

I guess if you're a tankie and you actually leave the house to organize instead of shitposting all over the internet you aren't going to be a typical tankie anyway.
