    If you want to know where everyone is, they are on social media.

    I have no idea how this type of back and forth happens on FB. How do I see what is happening on FB or IG? Once I sign up for one of those places is it as simple as searching for FS? I would like to find the robust conversations you mention. I just need a little help. Darn, I feel like an old timer now. Haha

    Thanks.

    PS: In those places, meaning FB & IG, can we use screen names or is it real names? Not sure it is a deal breaker for me, but I would like to know.

    I unbanned Don years ago, he just chose not to come back. I have also never made any attempt to stop him from posting under his other aliases since then.

    I donít see the forums being turned off in the near future, but this platform is very old, and well beyond its prime.

    Re: Geez, where is everyone?

    I think what you are saying is the days of this site are numbered and probably time is short. Been a good run. When you make the announcement give us some time so we can get certain peoples names, numbers and email addresses so we can stay in touch. Iíve learned a lot from the people on this site and made some friends. Hope to hook up with some of you this year.

    Well, thank you for the efforts to "keep it on life support." It is a greatly appreciated community service.
