I don't remember the forum being of a different format, with different outlay of active threads. H mn m . .
I don't subscribe to any threads anymore, but just do a general 'quick links' todays posts check, and see what is being added to.
I admire folks who can remember long and involved threads, with many life stories, that go on for months, years. I'm afraid I have the bad habit of skipping around, shallowly.
