'it isn't dead, just moved'

Thanks for that information—I thought it had died, because my usual book mark no longer worked; it wasn't listed as one of the 'new' CompuServe forums, but had continued in existence under the old system for some time.

We were all told to hand out the short http://community.compuserve.com... URLs, which work. That's what I used in the URL I just posted.

I think FLEFO was one of the last of the non-adult forums to move across.

Did you mean to insult Flefo habituees? As far as I know, they are all over 18, and some over 80.

Did you mean to insult Flefo habituees? As far as I know, they are all over 18, and some over 80.No, no — that is CIS-speak for forums with, um, “adult” content. You know — sex and like that.

Those are still in HMI format, not brought over to the web.

Ah, she meant the forums that are not 'for adults only'. I don't think you can call those forums 'non-adult' unless you go in for double-speak—which of course prolonged association with AOL can bring about.

KT has already explained what an 'adult forum' means in AOL/CompuServe-speak! No offence taken—after all, you might have used strine!
