• Hello!

    Either you have not registered on this site yet, or you are registered but have not logged in. In either case, you will not be able to use the full functionality of this site until you have registered, and then logged in after your registration has been approved.

    Registration is FREE, so please register so you can participate instead of remaining a lurker....

    Please be certain that the location field is correctly filled out when you register. All registrations that appear to be bogus will be rejected. Which means that if your location field does NOT match the actual location of your registration IP address, then your registration will be rejected.

    Sorry about the strictness of this requirement, but it is necessary to block spammers and scammers at the door as much as possible.

Personal forums and PayPal payments.

Wow, I didn't realize the steady decline of member participation. I guess it's so gradual that you don't realize it on a day-to-day basis. I realize this thread is about personal forums, and bogus PayPal claims, but appears to have kind of segued into the topic of the site in general.

I absolutely despise Facebook, and refuse to become part of that frenzy. I did start an account several years ago, but can probably count on both hands the number of posts I've made. My account mostly sits dormant now.

I am a contributing member here, and will remain so as long as the site is up and running. I love the "feel" of this forum, which can never be duplicated on Facebook. I, too, am a dinosaur, and feel like I can't keep up with all the new technology. Heck, I just got a cell phone last year!

Anyway, your effort at keeping the site up is much appreciated, Rich!
