Just curious. It can be on PBS or other.

I would love to hear about others. I'd like to find a good Christian forum. Finding one that's a good fit can be tricky. This is the only place (PBS) that I visit.

I searched around one time for a Christian forum, and never really found anything that looked great.  Sometimes maybe you have to try a place out for awhile, though.

I used to belong to a zillion homeschool groups but it was eating up my time so I unsubscribed to most.  Then I found myself wanting to chitty chat on the computer and wandered over here.  It is a nice to "talk" to adults when you're home with kids all day and sometimes all night too.   Unfortunately when I think it's eating up my time I can't unsubscribe without missing out on the original reason I joined PBS :-)  It is the ultimate test in self-control balancing online chat with real life responsibilities.

I am a member of a couple of other forums besides here.  I also own/operate one called Christian Hard Music.  We discuss any kind of Christian music as long as it rocks from pop-punk, modern rock, classic rock, metal, etc.

I also am a moderator at the Christian Metal Realm.  There, they discuss a lot of metal music--Christian and secular.

I used to be pretty active on Mugglenet.com, a Harry Potter forum.  It was fun to speculate about upcoming Harry Potter books, to discuss theories, make predictions, etc. 

Then I got involved in that site's 'Religion and Spirituality" section.  It was an international site, and there was nowhere near the sense of community that PBS has.  If you think Christians are persecuted at times on this site, you have no idea what the HP site was like!!  Wow.  I did manage to escape with all limbs intact, but I eventually decided to leave it all together.  It was far too emotionally draining.  And it ate up way too much of my time.

On PBS I like to lurk in Historical Fiction, Fantasy, Religion & Spirituality, Questions About PBS (although not as often anymore) and in CMT (when I'm feeling up for it.)
