    I have a need to communicate and even more so since my severe hearing loss has eliminated face to face conversation. SO and a few other forums give me the opportunity to satisfy my curiosity about many things and to express my self.

    Ken, Yvonne and myself were content writers on a seniors forum that went belly up. Ken started Seniorsonly Club and voila, here we are.

    I left another senior forum after the moderator there pulled some truly despicable, unethical crap, with me. He didn't deserve the great input I provided on his forum, where I had a few good friends. I miss them, but not the little dweeb who ran the board. You know exactly who I'm talking about, Lon.

    Invite the ones you like from elsewhere, if you think they would enjoy it here. We do have quite a few transplants here from “over there” already, and some who belong to several forums, @Trevalius Guyus .

    I asked about buying the forum from him after he said he was closing it, but he wanted an outrageous amount of money for it, given that it wasn't a successful forum, so I decided to start anew instead.

    To think about it, he got out just before the “hub” (we know who I mean) was sold to some rather ambitious people who haven’t done well at all.

    At any rate, I and I am sure Yvonne were delighted that you opened up as fast as you did. You’ve gone through some bumps and grinds but all in all, things turned out pretty well.

    In this case, content writers are given a small stipend for composition writing. Each piece of material was judged on it’s authenticity, the authors ability to write about a myriad of topics, the ability to make it interesting to the public and of course the author’s ability to incorporate the key elements in order to encourage SEO. (search engine optimization).

    Think it’s been about 5+ years since I joined this forum after being invited by a friend
    I’ve had lots of fun times playing games with my friend’s
