MIFP used to be much more active. Are there other financial planning forums that many of the former regulars here are now using?

forums that many of the former regulars here are now using?
I participate in a couple online via LinkedIn - mainly professional
groups (ie. the CFP group on there).

I do believe that MIFP could be an extremely valuable resource where
professionals (myself and a couple of other regulars - and anyone else
who wants to join us!) can interact with *non*-professionals, without
it being either a spam quagmire, or ongoing flamewar. But Usenet (and
even old-fashioned e-mail lists) are just not doing as well as
web-based things. I find that unfortunate - I really like this
structure a lot.

All it takes, I believe, is more regular topics to be posted. I
started to copy here contents of blog posts I put up on my own site,
but I was a bit afraid that it would be spammy - I'm not here just to
get people to visit my site, but it could appear that I was trying to
use MIFP in that way and I'm very wary of any such appearance.

If folks are okay with it, I'll start copying in things I post to my
blog, links to other stories I see, etc. in the hopes of sparking a
little more discussion.

I'm happy to moderate as I have been doing, but it would really help if
some others (thanks, btw, Beliavsky - recent contributions noted!)
would post thoughts, questions, etc.

I like a few of the LinkedIn groups as well. Etiquette is interesting,
as the unmoderated groups easily see threads get hijacked. I think it's
fine to self-promote a bit as long as the article is interesting enough
to start a good discussion. Loading one up of my own shortly, here.
