Currently the popular forum hosted by Ryan, has gone into prolonged hibernation.
Attempts at starting serious discussions on /x/ results in trolling and deleted threads. Tries have been made at /fringe/ with similar results, not thread deletion, but rather the discussion ends up in sexism and personal attacks. While open boards work well for attracting initial interest, developing a deeper understanding of the subject seems impossible.
Wordpress works well for personal stories, but keeping an information base and an environment for longer discussions with many participants is not compatible with the format.
For this reason we are starting this simple forum. While it is empty now, more people from various groups have been invited, and we know that there factually exists a potential user base large enough to get this going. If you know someone who may be seriously interested, please invite them.
For lurkers, take the time (should be done in a few mins) to register and say "hi" so other more regular posters know there is an audience! For Guest users the forum adds commercial links in the text, being logged in will also remove these.
