    Where did all the oldtimers go.

Now with almost 140,000 members we've become like a large city with the inevitable depersonalization. Things used to be new, exciting...

    Obscene, disgusting and hateful UNDERGROUND

    NOT! The Underground was created as a place where people could openly express their minds after certain Cafe discussions became a bit too contentious for "family" entertainment. Far from being a dark den of anarchy and nastiness, the Underground is actually a fascinating and enjoyable place to...

    Things I've learned the hard way . . .

    Re: 12:18AM UNDERGROUND "Suspended" I'm not knowledgeable enough to even guess if that's related. Problem is, CPF "LifeLine" is also unavailable. I've never seen this problem before. Brightnorm
