I think some here portray a character. Instead of speaking what they think and being who they are, they instead conform to what they what they think others would like them to be.

I guess you could say that I think some bend to peer pressure.

Well as long as the character they are playing wants to discuss rather than harass, I welcome it.

All the worlds a stage, and all that jazz.

I'm of the opinion that one should say, and defend, that which one truly believes.

Of course, I am as well.

I don't see that as a problem, though.

I don't find myself in conversations wondering what my opponent really thinks.

I came here from a private forum run by a gay guy. I enjoyed it until it was overtaken by the left. It started with people talking. It ended withe those I used to talk to preaching.

They told me why their way is right. They told me way my way is wrong.

All from their viewpoint. My voice didn't matter. I was made fun of.

I found LNF. The people here, even if I disagreed with them, talked. They put in the usual jabs. They didn't take prisoners, but they talked.

I talked to them as I would like them to talk to me. I won every award this forum has to offer, except for Conservative of the year. I'm proud of that. I'm proud of that because I won those awards because a mixed assembly of people, conservative, liberal, and middle of the road picked me out of the crowd and gave me the honor of holding them for a brief period.

They looked at me, me, and said, Harry, you represent us in these areas. We may not agree, but I have faith in you that you carry my ideas forward. Some of those guys are not around anymore. Some died. I wish they all were here now. This place would certainly be different.

Sorry for the morbid tone, but much has been lost. The thoughts of many, but more than that... the sense of the group. It may be a little cliche, but at one time we really had something. I know arguments raged. I know idiots were supreme. I know perfection never happened. I also know that I had friends. I knew when I signed in that certain people, left or right, would smile for me. They would smile at me. They would be glad I was here.

From that point, depending on the issue of the day, we may agree or disagree. Whatever happened, we would end as we started.

Today it seems that we approach others on the forum as either friend or foe. No intermediate role exists. We don't relate. We pound.

I miss my friends. I do.


I don't think anything has happened, as if something were supposedly not to happen. Friends, foes, meeting-in-the-middle, pounding each other outright, these are all normal interactions between people.

How does it survive? 


Not being censored.


One thing I have noticed about this forum is that there are a lot of loyal people here

We won't mention any other forum names Cheesy , but I noticed that other forums may have way more new members circulating but it's a whole another ballgame for them to keep posting

So in other words, more member turnover means nothing.

Too many forums are an "echo chamber" just liked BowHunter has described.

We won't mention any of those forum names also right Admin? Wink  Cheesy Grin

I started that way because it's the truth. It was the first political forum I ever belonged to. Lots of interesting interaction, but it was mostly liberal, and I gradually lost interest.

LNF, as flawed as it may be, is the most interesting place I've ever encountered on the internets.



Eastside boxing used to be pretty good until it, too, was over run to beome a public peeing place...so much so, that the general forum was dissolved.

I am contending that I am not by far the only one who thinks that you're not a valid debater and there is an easy way for you to prove me wrong, but you won't do it, because you know that I am right.
