    Since I've been suffering from severe financial problems, I've heard from others with equal or worse problems.

    They all deserve your help too, so I'm setting up this thread to allow the rest of you to help our members overcome their money woes.

    So feel free to post your issues here.

    To make the process simpler for everyone, there are a few guidelines:
    • Please write only about genuine problems. Don't tell me you just want someone to buy you a luxury automobile. Posts that aren't serious will be removed.
    • Please do not attack a poster. I've been pursued by online stalkers for several years, so I understand what's going on. People shouldn't be blamed because they have problems.
    • Please avoid extended back and forth discussions. Take it to a private conversation.
    • If you want to help a member or have questions, again open a private conversation.
    We're trying to do our part, but if you have a serious money and/or health issue, you may want to take it to a crowd-funding site to reach a larger audience, such as:

    GoFundMe: #1 for Crowdfunding & Fundraising Websites

    Free Online Fundraising & Crowdfunding Website - YouCaring

    Good luck everyone!

    I'll start the ball rolling. But don't respond here. Again, take it to a private conversation if you can help or have more questions.

    I'm still struggling to catch up with rent (and, yes, I'm looking for an even cheaper place to live).

    And for those who imagine I'm just "noodling" in front of my Mac, I spent a long day today driving people around via Lyft and Uber. I'm working more hours than ever.

    There is a way you can help Gene and other members.

    Donate a Paracast Plus subscription to a member you like who doesn't have one.

    Did you know just 5 bucks a fortnight (over a year) buys two subscriptions which you can gift to others ?

    If everybody threw 5 bucks a fortnight at the site (130 bucks a year) That would help everyone.

    Alien hub forums went bust and are now gone. You never miss your water till your well runs dry.

    JOIN THE PARACAST+ AND SUPPORT THE SHOW! Enjoy a special high-resolution version of The Paracast without network ads, the exclusive After The Paracast podcast, a full-time chat room, show transcripts, a video channel and more. FLASH! Prices have been slashed! Check it out here!

    There is even an option for a buck fifty a week.
