I don't know if anyone is on our rival site, Richarddawkins.Net, but they've just announced they're changing their forum so it's, well, as far as I can understand, no longer an open forum. Instead, all topics will be have to go through moderation before posting, and all off-topic posts (you know, the religious LOLcats, the silly pictures of tranny Jeses's etc) will be banned.
The mods appear to have gone AWOL so the site is effectively shutting down, as far as I can tell. People don't seem to want to stick around. Everyone's blaming Richard Dawkins, which I think is unfair, and the mods, but I suspect it's just got too big to be manageable.
I have mentioned our beloved site on RDN, in the hope of poaching a few more disgruntled members (although in the world of atheism, the more the better IMHO) but others of you might fancy going over there and collecting some 'friends' together.
Incidentally, I've just posted what I know, which isn't a lot, so if anyone knows more (or more accurately), please feel free to correct me. I just want all of us to live in harmony
