Programming and providing support for this service has been a labor
of love since 1997. We are one of the few services online who values our users'
privacy, and have never sold your information. We have even fought hard to defend your
privacy in legal cases; however, we've done it with almost no financial support -- paying out of pocket
to continue providing the service. Due to the issues imposed on us by advertisers, we
also stopped hosting most ads on the forums many years ago. We hope you appreciate our efforts.

After a son brandished a pistol at his mother and fired a round, his brother was forced to act. After being confronted in the garage, the deranged brother advanced toward his sibling, at which point he was forced to fire in self defense, hitting him several times in the chest. The man was taken to the hospital in critical condition. (actionnewsnow.com, Shasta County, Calif., 4/11/19)
