Snaarg has done good work with this site, and I've hijacked its user-base and sent them over to a non-LJ forum site. In my own defense I did have reasons. Threaded conversations, easy registration, private areas, multiple moderators (maybe you can do that here), and, importantly, a more common envirionment that most people easily recognize.
Sorry Snaarg, please keep those loose mobs offa me still?
