Online Discussion Groups

They are all open groups.  Anyone may join, everyone is encouraged to participate.  New members are moderated to prevent spam.  Moderators are there to keep things basically on track and keep out spam.  We do not control the topics or their content.  The occasional off topic posting will happen.  It lets us get to know each other a little better.   We do not allow spam, politics, religion or porn.  You can get that many other places.
