How many folks come here regular, what kind of a active membership do we have? Have the folks gone to Facebook? Some other sites I used to go to are pretty dead due to FB. FB really sucks to post pics, easy to post, gone the next day, not worth the trouble...Just Curious...Roger
Roger, Despite having more than 500 members, I believe that all but a few dozen of them are inactive. The great majority join and do not post, I don't know why. Maybe because most folks are passive, rather than active. People come and go for all sorts of reasons. Regular posters, in my guess, would be less than a dozen or so. I keep no figures, myself. My websites do not have any trackers or cookies. Of course, FB knows more about you than you know yourself, as does Google. Google tracks massive amounts of its users’ data. Not only does the company likely have a list of everything you’ve ever browsed online, but they also admitted to scanning private emails in an attempt to find out more about its users. FB makes it their business to find out everything they can about you, because they are selling that info. FB knows your politics. In May, Google officially removed the long-time company motto “Don’t be evil” from its code of conduct. Your reason for not posting on FB is valid, I never thought of it that way. - EXO
EXO: There are a disturbing number of applicants for membership who are not reading the rules. As a result, members who have not made a relevant post within 3 months will be deleted, on the grounds they are "bots".

JackJensen: I came across my father's name - Capt. Paul Jensen - who was with the CIC, on the forum. I'm hoping to find more, though it appears that his area - Sicily, North Africa - was not the focus of the board. So, I'm not sure how much I can contribute.
