Next we need to "enhance" the membership, if you get my drift. Maybe an entrance fee would do the trick or something along those lines.

Jeebus.

Next, we'll be having "ed Towers" and "ed International Golf Links-Aberdeen, Scotland"

Somebody make him a new avatar with a suitable toupee.
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Still going strong, and some folks here are there. I occasionally lurk.

But it really really isn't JREF, just some folks who acquired the forum assets when JREF sold them off.

The actual JREF site is still somewhat interesting, but no forum.

The only other "skeptic" site I'm still active on is Shermerland.

There's the JREFUGEES group at Facebook. The format doesn't really lend itself to a forum but there are plenty of old faces there.
