    I will not be making the transition. I have posted a single post over there & while replying to a comment from Neo I saw his IP. I know he’s using Comcast in San Jose & I suspect I know the street he’s on. Not cool at all.

      Maybe its the address of Comcast? I used to use Centurytel and my IP would show the address of their main office in Louisiana, I was in Tx though. Idk, I’m just saying, not a tech person.

        I’m looking at a house near a high school on Google Maps. Well I was yesterday when I sent him a PM of his address to see if my concerns were well founded. I have not heard back… which I assume means I was perfectly accurate. I probably even know which room his router is in.

          I just responded to your PM and told you that the information that you got from Me is wrong (since I use wireless) but since you also claimed that your own information was correct it makes the new thinkr web site as a security risk.
          I’m also not sure who is moderating it?

            I don’t use any masking software & the light switch for my FiOS is right beside my house.

              That’s very dangerous in today’s information age with crazy people like that Canadian demon running around!

            Good to know… were you in San Jose when you replied? I’m curious how accurate that IP is, how far down the route does it make it? If you aren’t masking or otherwise protected.

              YES, I was but rather far from that location…

              Too close for my comfort. I rather like being anonymous, it’s why I refuse to FaceBook.

              The wireless network that I was using must have been feeding into that IP address in some fashion!!!

    Mr. M&M.
    Do you know what’s going on with this site? I can’t seem to post anything other than replying/commenting on someone’s post.

      Ben is letting it die, Thinkr.xyz is his new project.

        MM…best wishes to you if this site is about to end.

        August 30, 2017
        1. Munkyman

          Likewise, take care.

            You can sense the quietness as the postings are slowing down in all sections.
            I imagine Brn has left the building a week or two ago.
            Folks are slowly leaving…ho hum.

              I think it’s done this weekend.

      Ben also told Me that he is going to eventually turn off thoughts.com
      But the input that I just received from the Monkey Man suggests that the new web site will be a security risk…

      Brn…if thoughts.com is coming to a end I wish you all the best.

      August 30, 2017
      1. PTF

        I may add Brn your posts and threads was very helpful. They kept us on top of everyday events that affected us and what to look for.
        Bottom line you educated…which is highly important to us.
        I personally thank you for a job well done.

            Since thoughts will fade along side with offtopicz and this site may be put up for sale by Go Daddy,I wonder if there’s a chance someone would buy it and keep it going since we still have a good number of members hanging on ? I’ve noticed at the bottom the ads has stopped.
            Comments ?

              I appreciate all your great input. I’m glad there are people like you around out there. You and Mr. Will are great people.
              .
              As for buying this site. I don’t have the extra capital to invest in anything else. What would it cost anyway? I’m not very computer literate.

          2. PTF

            Not sure but I think it goes month to month. I believe also the new owner must rustle up advertisers to help defray the costs of maintenance and more.
            The former owner of offtopicz.com asked the membership to donate via paypal since she could not get enough ads…well…offtopicz is history. She had hundreds of active members and a good number of moderators at different levels.
            I guessed she looked at her purse and said I had enough,I’m going broke.
            Tells you donations don’t work,who wants to pay ?

              I want to add the problem of spammers who knows how to bust through every firewall ever conceived by man. it’s tiresome deleting twenty five or more spams daily.

              Donations can work, they keep wiki alive. PBS/NPR found the secret to donations… perks & “club swag.”

    If Thoughts ends so do I.I have enjoyed my 8 years here.I tried to find the funny side of every day troubles.Life is tuff enough.Hopefully I have entertained and educated you.

      You have had a few that were undeniably funny.

      All the best to ya Gulf…Your threads though humorous but they were very interesting…some to the point.

      Mr. G,
      I remember seeing you at another site. I left that site when I was put on restriction for saying ‘feminazis’ or something like that. Do you have another place you hang out?

      September 02, 2017
      1. PTF

        I was at the forumsite at the same time posting here…it’s very boring.
        They are so liberal.
        If you begged the difference in opinions without malice you get banned. Either you agree by commenting or else.
        Here you can expressed your opinions and “it gets the ball rolling”.
        I was at random chatter.org a few years ago. We viewed your posts with 100 percent total agreement and support.
        James was the administrator. He is a business man with a small company and a conservative Republican who posted.
        I invited him to join thoughts.
        With his knowledge James was “jumped” on by Paul,mrmcq,jillthoughts,WAYNE ,Ion(never knew which sex he is) and a few more so he stopped posting and returned to his site. Btw…random chatter had 70 members but slowly dribbled down to five including myself. James decided to shut it down and I wish him well.

      I will miss you Gulfman. I’ve enjoyed your wit, sarcasm, and well timed one liners! Take care!

    Popping in to say hi and bye! Joined the new site but the security concerns will most likely result in me not posting there.
    I’m on Disqus, which I’ve really, really enjoyed. I mainly comment and haven’t created any posts there, o my own channel, but I enjoy most of the people, and the fast paced topics. Channel mods can ban at a whim, so I choose the channels I participate in with that in mind. I’ve joined Gab and Minds, but haven’t had the time yet to familiarize myself with it.

      I think I’m just done. I don’t see the return I had hoped to get from it. I had hoped to find more open minded people who wanted to talk about things instead of dozens of people with no intention of ever working with each other toward any constructive end. The Thoughts team that went around doing good waaay back when, that was one of the things that gave me hope that this would be the kind of place I wanted to be.

      September 02, 2017
      1. EyeVey

        It’s been an honor posting with you. I’ve enjoyed, and more importantly, learned a lot from your posts. I’m disappointed with the personal security risks on the new site. I like the concept of member moderation there, but I don’t want my location out there. While I’ve thought about VPN’s in the past, right now I’m overwhelmed with new technology implementation for work and my brain just can’t take on more.

        September 02, 2017
        1. Munkyman

          VPNs are pretty simple, the easier they are the more expensive they tend to be. I just don’t like having to do it for the reasons I would feel compelled to.

          September 02, 2017

          The idea that I could be stalked for daring to have a different political view is tremendously offensive to me.

          September 02, 2017
          1. EyeVey

            I’ve actually seen that happen over the past several months elsewhere, which is the #1 reason I won’t expose my personal location to the degree it could be.

            Do you have any idea when the plug will be pulled on Thoughts ?
            From my experience at other sites that closed,as long there are postings the site will continue running.

            September 05, 2017
            1. wirelessguru1

              I suppose as long as Ben wants to continue to pay to keep thoughts.com alive!

              No clue, my guess is when the rent runs out on the servers.

    So far Thoughts is still running…
    Perhaps a second thought about reconsidering.
