Today it is 7 years ago since AOL opened its Journals service, only to close it a little over 5 years later. I'll keep this as a front post, but will close comments in a few weeks' time - to thwart spammers. Call for Support remains open for business, if and when required.
J-land was a wonderful community. It gave support to many (myself included) in difficult times, and friendships which continue (on- or off-line) today. The spirit of the community continues through blogs, Facebook and other social networking sites.
