Anyone know how to reach anyone in the Where's CNN forum?

Anyone know how to reach Steve in the other forum, the one about What happened to CNN?, the forum which was discontinued today without notice because we were off-topic too much?    I got an email from VM referring me here.    Hard to make friends in a forum which suddenly vanishes.

CNN is pulling out of UK market and turning to a subscription only service, outside of the US

This community is not designed to be an online dating site.  If you want to contact Steve1701 click on his profile page and send him a Private Message.  That way your discussions are kept confidential and not published online for anyone in the world with internet access to read.

Re: Anyone know how to reach anyone in the Where's CNN forum?

Thanks but that's not what I meant.   We had a whole group on a VM forum about that topic since they announced they weren't carrying CNN anymore.   We didn't exchange email addresses and a couple of us chatted on the forum regularly.   VM just shut down the forum without notice because, as they said in an email they sent,  we were talking off topic too much.  I don't think that had ever been made clear as a requirement.    Makes me sad to lose contact with new friends with whom we'd spoken regularly for some time now.   Had no idea they were going to shut it down. 

Now I miss CNN AND the new friends with whom I shared that information loss.

If CNN is subscription only, can individuals subscribe?   I'd heard it was pretty much only available over here in expensive hotels.

Not looking for a dating site.  Men and women can be friends.  This IS the 21st century!    I have no idea how to find anyone's 'profile page' on a site that no longer opens.

Thanks, Rich.   Will that subscription site carry the regulars we used to watch?   Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo....   What's happening with him?   I  heard he was having some troubles.   If I'd said 'The usual gang of idiots', you'd know I used to read Mad Magazine as a kid.
