You are valued and appreciated and offer many wonderful tidbits of information and sometimes a little more than I need to know about cartoons, and furry animals and *shudders* other stuff.
Now what exactly would that other stuff be man? Hehehehe. But in all seriousness, I don't know this place needs money unless you tell us. How are things currently looking?

Thank you for asking. We don't need much. If half of us dropped a fiver every month or so we would be fine. We don't need 50 bucks a person but a nice steady monthly works. If things get desperate Wolfy (wherever that rat bastard may be spending all our money on the occasional lottery ticket) will let us know.

I don't think this place is going to be shut down for financial reasons anytime soon, and setting up regular payments would be a pain in the ass because of Paypal. If things get bad, just let us know. Buying the domain from Richie was the big thing, keeping the lights on really isn't that hard.

Thanks aitm for all you said. I've only been here since may 2014, but I've grown to love this forum, it feels like a little space to just enjoy and chat and talk about things in general, with people of like mindedness. I never got to know the other guys, but I've just happy to get to know everyone here, its like a bar you come visit after work, where everybody knows your name, and their always glad you came.

Happy new year everyone, lets keep the ball rolling <3

B. It's my fault. After I came on board, the forum went into redneck overload.

I've been here since December '09, right after I realized that I wasn't a believer anymore. I've seen the ebb and flow of the forums, and I agree with aitm. I don't have the post count of a lot of you, but many of us find this place a welcome home on the internet.

I think one of the more... interesting... times in forum history was the heyday of WitchSabrina (if I'm remembering her name right), Taqiyya Mockingbird, and Azzi.

What's with the guests? Seriously. Every time I visit there's like 5-10 members and 70 guests or something.

Here since 2009 as TSA, a few years before that as Azrael.

I miss the old forum, in some respect. It was painful, but at the same time wonderful to watch the brutal takedowns of idiotic theists, or someone who simply preferred a different type of tea.

I can oblige.

I'm on here as anonymous, so blame me. Has to do with my sneaky below the radar mentality.

Having taken notes, those are meme vectors to infect the Establishment, and maybe make them a little less stupid ;-)
