Good Evening All,
First let me say that I am cross posting this to the CWDG and the CWWT, so many of you will be receiving the same post. I have permission to do this since I own one and Eric owns the other and he says ok :-)
Almost ten years ago a few of us Civil War Buffs happened to meet in a Civil War Chat Room hosted by WebAmerica. Some of you might remember that far back. However, when the WebAmerica server went Porn, we bailed and have been bounced pillow to post since then. The last stop was the Cwi Chat Room. I discussed the issue with Joe, the owner of the Cwi Chat Room, and he said he could no longer support so I said I could.
The bottom line is that we have a new address I would like to invite any and/or all of you to join with us. Make no mistake about it, this is not a Yahoo room or a free room on any other server. I own it, I pay for it, and I moderate it. The cost to you is nothing, you have but to register. The same people that moderate my CWWT are the same ones that moderate this group. If you belong to the CWWT you know that we stick strictly by the rules. Break them and you’re done. That’s the bad news. The good news is that the chat room hosts "Book Chats," "Moderated Discussions about various Civil War Events." "Trivia Contests" and just "general BS secessions." I have no restrictions on what can be discussed. However, you will find most of them wind up being about the Civil War.
Now let me explain what you need to do. In order to keep just anyone from making a mouse click and coming in the room, I require that each member be registered. This does not mean that mail is going to hit your mailbox every few minutes. It simply means that I need a name and password to get you into the chatroom and to ban you if I have to. This is a "real time" chat room and not an email group. After you join and decide you don’t want to be a member any longer, no problem. Just don’t enter the room for 90 days and your name will be automatically dropped from the list. Lordy, you have to just love technology.
Anyway, here’s the link to get you there and I hope to see you soon.I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
Dick (a.k.a. Shotgun)
