Hi, Ed...pleased to meet you! I'm Nikki. Welcome!
What are the facts? Again and again and again-what are the facts? Shun wishful thinking, ignore divine revelation, forget what “the stars foretell,” avoid opinion, care not what the neighbors think, never mind the unguessable “verdict of history”--what are the facts, and to how many decimal places? You pilot always into an unknown future; facts are your single clue. Get the facts!

The straw that broke the Camel's back was simple.

The admins encouraged members to report bad activity. You know how children like to tattle. I ran a poll asking if such quisling like behavior was acceptable in a free thought forum. The majority of respondents thought that it was ok. I left. They still suck. It was a speech thing.

I can't "thank" Xouper's post. I get a message that the post does not exist. Fair enough. I can live with weirdness. :D

I don't understand the history concerning Ed on JREF. I guess we will learn it, as we chat. :D

My unrelated anxiety is that the ISF just suspended "logger", the pro-trump" spammer for three months and I expect him to try his luck here. We already have Gorgeous and VKTW and don't need more Trump "spamming fan-boys"
