What will you do if Google/Blogger pulled Codrea, Vanderboegh, and every other FreeFor scribe off their platform as “inappropriate content”?
Same question for Mosby, LF, and the rest of the WordPress-based operations, including this place?
Do you have hard copy of everything you need?
Do you have good contact info for like-minded folks in your area?

If not, do you have a plan to do so?
Tempus fugit, campers.
And the Evil Ones are “opposed” politically by a bunch of squishes, many of whom are compromised.

The roach survives by not being where the shoe is coming down.
Think hard on this stuff.
