Please Don't Cancell This Forum : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Please don't let this forum be cancelled: to anyone that has the ability to keep it "on the air". I was so shocked to see the news. I had planned to ask for a recipe for CRISP pickled broccoli and okra....and then I see the news. Can anyone help? Where else can we go??? HELP!!! There are tons of practical matters to discuss that could help so many people.

Please please please please please Ed, Philip, MIT, TBTB, do NOT end this Forum!


Many of us are not finished with preparations and benefit greatly from the practical tips shared here!

We already miss the Forum, want to be able to retrieve & continue it. If Ed would just give it to Hardliner or Diane or BigDog or Rob or a responsible regular, the name TimeBomb 2000 could be changed and references to Ed eliminated so he wouldn't be pestered/frightened/embarrassed/career perturbed/financially harmed.

PLEASE !!!!!

We do hope that Ed & Phil & Whomever will realize that it is too cutthroat to decapitate the Forum cold turkey like this, and will turn it over to one of the regulars. That is the humane thing to do. Many of us have not finished preparing and need the Q & A help with prep tips.

Ed, Phil, Whomever, TPTB MUST know how civil many of us have remained, and how deep friendships and comradery have formed on the Forum. It's unbelievable that anybody would just shut it down, without giving us at least advance notice and a week to copy archives, our own posts, and our friends' eMail addys!

Please don't leave us. I need this forum. I'm here every day; the media gives us nothing. Between you, Gary North and Cory,I've been able to gain strength to keep on fighting for the cause. Please reconsider! WHERE ELSE CAN WE GO???

Hang in there.

It will get worked out.

Thanks for the phone call alert, Leska!

Looks as if there is a ray of hope:

Who out there can create a new forum? Can Ed leave this one alone until it is replaced??

Apparently, the death of this forum has been exaggerated...the man speaketh on another thread:

"The forum will continue to live, and the threads and messages should be able to be posted without any changes.

I hope that we'll be able to make an announcement of the new forum sysop/moderator in the next day or so.

I'm dropping off the radar screen, but Y2K has not gone away -- nor have most of the forum participants. I wish all of you the very best!

Sincerely, Ed

Where does it say Ed is dropping this forum???? Hanging up your crying towel. Quit moaning. He's a busy man; he's cutting down. Didn't say one word about dropping this forum that I read. Show Me
