Faith Collapsing is a host set up by me (Steven Saus) with the same sensibility of the BBS I ran back in the 1990s - I set it up for me, but folks I personally know are welcome to join if they like. Left-leaning; fascists will not be happy with my moderation. Incitements to violence or hate speech will get you gone.
