Forum is now open for comments only, due to limited moderation.

The original creator has been absent 8 years.  She may no longer identify as Lesbian or as Atheist, but could still experience discrimination due to being listed as creator of this group.  This group does come up on internet search with this person, and her photo photo, as group creator.  We live in era when discrimination can be expected to increase on many fronts.

I moderated since that time. On several occasions, I requested that another member moderate, but was unable to find a volunteer who would actively moderate content.

Please be aware, posts left active on this group, especially discussion forum, can be hazardous to members, even ones who have been gone for many years.  In most states and countries, there is no protection for LGBT people regarding employment, housing, or employment.  The same is true regarding atheists.  Some members may not even be aware of discrimination, and may not be aware that their old posts and images are still there to come back and haunt them.  Posts and the membership list are visible on internet searches.

There has been at least one case of a member of Atheist Nexus experiencing employment discrimination due to their membership. 

Another member of Atheist Nexus was murdered in India, in 2011 (Ajita Kamal).  As far as I can tell, the perpetrator and motive were never found, but Kamal was a known atheist, and known atheists are frequently targeted for brutal killings in South Asia.

Any member who posts, without having their own photo or name on their screen name and avatar, is expressing implied agreement, by default, about the importance of privacy, even on the internet.

A controversial group needs an active moderator, who will look out for the needs and safety of the members, as much as possible in such a forum.

As has recently been done, posts on Atheist Nexus are subject to screenshots.  They are also be subject to internet search.

I recommend that interested members start a new LGBT group, so that there is no issue with long absent group creator and no longer having a moderator.  Until that time, this group is open for a rolling comment wall.  I am not able to expire comments without closing the entire comment page, due to host program (Ning) limitations on moderation.

@Sentient Biped- Did you know that AIDS is god's punishment for being a nerd?

unfortunately, between then and now most of my nerdy gay friends wound up with a little thing called AIDS. That was the 800 pound gorilla that changed every gay life. And now a new generation of nerds joins in. Glad for that.

I remember the Sinclair, though I never had one.  As for the slide rule: Keuffel & Esser "Log-Log Duplex Decitrig," a real classic.  I still have it here ... SOMEWHERE.  And then there was that Christmas party in 1972 my EMF Fields prof threw where someone had one of the first Hewlett Packard HP-35 calculators ... wow, game changer!

More than that...  I had a slide rule.  I know, that puts me into the time of mastedons...  so be it!  Later, I had special pouch hanging on my belt for my HP calculator.  Geek!  Then....  I made my own computer, soldering in the chips and connecting it to the TV with an adapter.  SInclair ZX80.  Google on it!   And....  I did tape my glasses when they broke.  Oh the good old days!
