So, if one of you kind souls could let people on Facebook know... 

I've picked up a 24 hour ban on Facebook for a ridiculous, arbitrary reason. I used the figure of speech, "I wanted to strangle her," about a stranger on an airline over 4 weeks ago - which of course Facebook's zero tolerance policy interprets as a "threat of violence". 

So, I've logged out of Facebook on all of my devices and uninstalled it from all of my devices - and they're on a 30 day ban from getting my free content and the traffic it drives to their site. 

Let everyone know I'll see them December 1st.

Makes you wonder how BBSes generated traffic in the old days. 

I guess part of it was - eventually the reason I turned off the original TSBBS was because traffic had died down to only a few callers a week, if that - and that is really when I stopped going to other Cits - same thing was happening there. 

I wonder what had come along that had made so many of the content producers back then lose interest. I don't think it was that they were TIRED of Citadel... 

They had found something new. Maybe - and I ran across some 916 Cit users from time to time there back in the day - it was Usenet. The weird thing is, even though I had interacted with those folks I came across daily in Citadelphia, we had eaten pizza at the same MUPTs and knew each other face to face... on Usenet - it was like we were strangers - folks crossing paths on a busy downtown street. 

The Internet promise of "creating communities" has never been like Citadel was about creating community. Uncensored has a community, albeit a small community. There is really only space, it seems, for one Citadel, globally, in today's world. But it still has a sense of community that doesn't exist on Twitter, or Reddit, or Facebook. But it is the last one.

Welcome back. The place is something of a ghost town these days. I'd love for people to rediscover it - it is faster than it has ever been, more reliable than it has ever been, better operating than it has ever been... 

And less used than when it was running on a Pi 3B+
