Cafe untended starting here Message 31643225 2018 06 05

Cafe is now tended as at 2018 09 08
Message 31782029

Overarching Purpose: this thread shall try best to create the easy ambiance of an internet cafe situated in a politically-practical and gentrified neighbourhood where folks hang out 24-7-365 to ponder the process of collapse, have a cup, share a meal, tap on computers, and generally have a good time while fully cognisant that none shall get out of the future alive.

Any threader behaviour detrimental to thread purpose shall be mercilessly stumped on, per simple rules promulgated here Message 31013952 by universal acclamation.

Additional but very simple rules Message 31020283 re discussion of politics

By universal suffrage one person one vote, the thread elected to change name from "The Financial Collapse of 2001" to current name as at 2017 03 08.

For issues not covered by above rules, I encourage you to use the 'Ignore' function.

Bottom line, whatever needs doing to try to deliver on Overarching Purpose may be tried without warning.

Cheers, tobagojack
