VoyForums Announcement: Programming and providing support for this service has been a labor of love since 1997.

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.

In reply to: TOBY 's message, "Former wrestler Moondog Rex dead at 69" on Sunday, December 15, 08:32:50am

A better description would be "so and so, known for this and that in the 1960's and 1970's, has died"
