Dear Pink: Have just received the bad news that our beloved GA forum
will be terminated soon. Can you identify any Internet discussion
groups that have high standards? Most of the so-called chat groups are
dominated by juveniles obssessed with hedonism and celebrities.
   Any link that meets your standards will do. I realize that getting
specific questions answered will be unlikely.
Best regards,

Dear Monroeitall22,

Thank you so much for asking. I appreciate your generosity, and am
immensely flattered that my opinion on this matter holds any weight.

The best public online forum I know of, and the only one on which I am
currently very active, is The Straight Dope Message Board. This is a
large, lively community of mostly intelligent, mostly mature, mostly
entertaining folks. "Dopers," as we call ourselves, are a diverse lot.
The majority, I believe, are atheists and agnostics. Most appear to be
left-of-center politically. Nevertheless, there seems to be room for a
Christian conservative like myself; this is a very tolerant board on
which the only thing that is almost universally despised is ignorance
(but, of course, each of us defines "ignorance" differently)!

The Straight Dope Message Board

Here are some other possibilities. I am not an active member of all of
these communities, but I've heard good things about them:

Noise Level Zero (NLZ)

The Fabulous Forums of Fathom


Television Without Pity Forums

Liberty Forum

Ars Technica OpenForum

Thanks again for posting this, K22. The end of GA is indescribably
painful for me, and the comfort of friends is very much appreciated.

Best always,

Pink:  Thanks will be missed. Is there some message board
for you (and other GARs) to post your email addresses?
All the very best,
K22/monroe AKA

Such sad news!  I rely on Google Answers for both information and entertainment.  

To answer your original question, though, I'd like to recommend
another forum at which PinkFreud is a frequent contributor: the
message boards at The Straight Dope ( 
The boards are moderated and are VERY civil.
