    Looks like they finally pulled the plug on that forum. To bad, I was there for a long time. Hope this works as well for me. Oh, and high everybody. (where's the spellcheck. I tend to look like a fool without spellcheck)

    With only the shrill fringe even watching MSNBC, it's little wonder they shut off their messageboard.

    Welcome to USMB.

    I didn't even know they had one. I knew you could post within news items, but didn't notice MSNBC had an open discussion forum.

    As for spell check, I have one provided by Google when I added it as a secondary search menu bar. It will spell check whatever you typed, wherever you typed it.

    Oh, and welcome. On a scale of one to ten, this board is a 7.5 most days.

    Hi all - another refugee from MSNBC (waves to marius).

    Need a nice place to play and discuss....MSNBC would get quite weird sometimes.

    No spell check, that IS a drag....but, oh well.

    Anyway.....hello and hope this is a good place to land.

    Try downloading Mozilla Firefox...it is MUCH faster than MS Internet Explorer, has better security and has a spell check built in.

    Hey, Marius, AZ, et al...

    Temporarily, you will also find some of the Refugees taking shelter at...

    ( news.uk.msn.com/opinion/message-boards/ )

    ...which seems to be the one piece of the boards still on its feet; the UK segment; for as long as that lasts. They were formerly heavily moderated, although I've seen "native" commentary leading me to believe that, like the US side, their moderators have gone 'walkabout' except to deal with the worst stuff.

    You'll find some of the Politics and US News folk in both the 'General Discussion' (mostly) and 'Politics' zones.

    Big surprise when it actually happened, even though we had been speculating on it for over a year.

    I will also insert a post into one or two of the threads over there, about this place.
