What are some widely-read general discussion forums?
I'm not looking for specifically gay or gossip forums bit rather just places to discuss almost any topic of interest.
I shouldn't have posted this in the middle of the night.
there's a subreddit (or 10) for just about any topic you can think of
Try fark.com. TONS of topics daily ( submitted by users ) and often witty, knowledgeable posters. Not specifically GLBT oriented, but VERY gay friendly. You have to register to post,though. AWESOME political discussions!
Reddit is the other forum I spend a fair amount of time on. But most of its posters are fairly young so if you are older like a lot of the DL it's humor and even how to navigate it might be lost on you.
