I live overseas and enjoy the yahoo news message board to connect with Americans back home.
The Yahoo message boards were living history, as I saw the highest rating for a President ever, fall to the lowest ever. The message boards reflected the American sentiment, and when the baby killing, supporters of these war criminals in office could no longer debate, they reached out to Chertoff to pull the plug. National Security you see.
I remember 100,000 posts in a few hours when a hot story came along. The boards were legendary and were a great source of study for many disciplines in the Humanities.
Imagine, Cheney has an approval rating now of 8%! What fun we are missing not being able to roast these pigs on the boards.
