For the past several years Cranford had an anonymous message board where the greatest benefit would be to find out why there was police or fire department activity that you passed on your way home.

Besides those explanations, it would often contain a lot of vitriol, rants, and posts from users (how many there truly were was hard to tell since everyone posted as “Guest”) who were pretty obviously off the deep end.

A virtual rubber room where one in 100 posts had some value.

Well, cranfordtalk.org has been down since January. And I think it’s not coming back.

I don’t think it’s that big a loss.

What other options are there?

http://www.nj.com/cranford-nj/ or http://www.nj.com/forums/cranford/ or http://www.nj.com/onthetown/westfieldcranford/

They look old (like Hurricane Irene old) and as messily designed as the rest of nj.com.

http://www.topix.com/forum/city/cranford-nj Rarely used, annoying popups.

No Yahoo groups that I could find, no Google groups.

Is there a place I am missing?
