As Holly said, we have people from all over the United States, spread out from one coast to the other, plus Alaska and Hawaii, at least one Canadian, and one Canadian who lives in the Dominican Republic. We have several from the UK, at least one from Germany, and some from Australia. We all have our own opinions about most everything, and we do enjoy talking about them, but no one here is rude or defamatory to another person (or at least we all try hard not to be), and by and large, we are a pretty happy and welcoming group of folks here at this forum. While we often disagree with each other about many of the topics we discuss, we never ridicule each other as human beings, like happens on some other forums. And if (rarely) Admin has to ban someone, it is always a temporary ban, and he works hard to settle it with the person without having to ban anyone. This forum probably doesn’t fit for everyone, but it fits for those of us who make this their main forum, and we miss each other when someone is not around anymore.
