I am rarely in here. Simply looking in once every year or so to read the latest parodies of FDR. I have personally grown on so many levels beyond the initial taste of anarchy I had from back in the days 4 years ago with anarcho-capitalism.
This has always been a forum about FDR for me and I get my anarchist daily digest from other forums such as the libertarian left and youtube.

I think also even though my quip 'forgot my ******** passport' was intended as a little light humour in the face of such adversity where fdr is concerned for me, I consider that LM has reduced the chances of such a circumstance from occurring.
To be honest the kid in the clip is of course very young and I doubt that a person of such an age might get drawn into fdr, but kids are getting smarter much younger and given time ........well you never know.

I know I haven't poked my head up here in awhile, but I add my name to the list of people who would be sad to see this site end.
I'll just dump my contact info on the off chance that someone may find it of use. I can be found by the same handle on youtube and a yahoo.com email address. And if any of ya'll use skype, I've been on that alot lately - same screen name again.

I suggest taking that gentleman's offer of taking over the site, financially, and in terms of management. Just write a public contract.
1. Conrad gets lifetime admin privileges, no questions asked, including the right to shut the site down if it has strayed off course. This can be guaranteed in several ways...
2. If the site comes close to closing down again any interested party may make a plea to continue it. The new admin and Conrad have veto if they choose. Conrad has super veto. New party has proxy veto (if Conrad has no opinion either way).
I'd be sad to see it go. I've weened myself of internet forums over the years, and the FDR debacle was my last hurrah, with LiMi being the ride into the gleaming sunset (cue end of Lord of the Rings with Annie Lennox singing Across the Water). Of COURSE I want it to go on forever. But I know what it means to keep a site up when you don't really want to do so. It is a huge pain in the arse. So don't do it.
If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

My presence here has nothing to do with FDR; I just enjoy the intellectual posts. I'd miss LiMi if it disappeared. Facebook doesn't seem to be a good alternative, based on certain observations (which may be wrong):
1. Everything posted on Foosbook is seen by all the author's friends, many of whom may not be libertarians, and who may start dismissing the author as a kook for going on about it. This also makes me self-conscious when discussing intellectual matters: a disturbingly large number of my Facebook friends prefer to talk about more mundane things like their kids, their vacation, etc.
2. The format of Facebook comment threads are not a good substitute for the message board format.
3. Facebook content rapidly sinks out of sight; there isn't a search feature.
Forumotion's message forums are free.
