Yep. I just wrote a long post and it got wiped accidentally. I will write it again. The short answer is I found out, after all these years  :-[, how to disable the blog front page (which I have never used) so the "home" button now takes you to the forum (which is the only place I post at).

The "Forum" button was removed by the create-a-forum software now that "Home" is here. That is what I have always wanted, but had never figured out how to do.  :P So how can I have a forum for so many years and not know all the ins and outs of it? I will explain.

This forum, which is free  ;D, was set up for me by RE, the Admin at the Doomstead Diner blog and forum. I started out there is 2012 and my "Agelbert Newz channel" (a posting area there I put all my posts) garnered a lot of views (It now has over a million views  :o).

RE liked that, but did not like my decidedly negative views on fossil fuels and peak oil, so we went round and round .

Also, the Doomstead Diner is cursed with some money loving racists, egomaniacs and defenders of the fossil fuel CRAP civilization we have, PLUS a lot of idiocy about the "benefits" of Capitalism and/or "Libertarian" BALONEY. Needless to say, I got into a lot of "friendly" discussions about God, ethics, the wrongness of being greedy, etc.   

This always grew tiresome so I would go away for a while.

Now, RE and I did not get along all that well. That's why he started this forum for me here.  ;D Howevah, he did like all the beady bubbles that would go to his forum because of my posts. So, he would always try to get me to come back and be nice to the right wing arseholes at the Doomstead Diner.

To give you an idea of our, uh, "discussions" about being away ;) (i.e. walkabout) check out the following topic thread:

Disagreements on the Doomstead Diner May 15, 2015

At any rate, I had to learn how things are done here by trial and error. RE never gave me Admin status at the Doomstead Diner. I still post over there periodically to pull on their chain :D, but I really cannot stomach most of them because of their rather thinly disguised greed is good world view.

Here's one the choice graphics I have used there to let them know what I think of their world view:

I am the Admin. RE handed the Admin slot off to me. However, Create-a-Forum owns this and always will. I hate ads so I have my adblocker on all the time. Create-a-Forum doesn't like that but that's the way I roll. If you do not have an adblocker on, you will be hit with stupid ads.

I am poor. Yeah, I'm smart and have lots of knowledge but I am not out to make a buck off of that. I am simply out to do what I think God wants me to do. The day Create-a-Forum decides they don't want this forum around, it disappears. I assume that they haven't shut it down because a sprinklling of people that do not have an adblocker on visit here. That's how Creat-A-Forum makes ends meet.

You can also set up a forum just like this free. This is the Creat-a-forum hangout if you wish to go that route at some time in the future.
