Does this mean history of our 'skeptic' movement ...

... such as it is, starting from the threatened closure of JREF forum?

Or is it real important history, such as beautiful pictures of old Mahattan "els"?.

Or something in between, such as history of stuff like WWII? :P

Er...Kinda/sorta. There's been a plan in the works, off and on for a while, to shut down the non-skeptic-related sections of the board and switch to more paranormal-related discussion. That was the reasoning behind the formation of the forums at skepticalcommunity.com.

The admins over at JREF have been plagued with technical problems, so I honestly don't know if this idea will ever be implemented.
