Hello Invisible Ones!

Several of us are nearing our goal weights. We enjoy the support of our fellow dieters, and would like to continue that even after our goals are met. We suggest that a Cabbage Soup Diet Maintenance Forum be added to the Discussion, Opinions, Experiences and Recipes forum.

If you're a regular on this board and would like to see a Maintenance forum established, please post here and add your vote. Then we can try an email with the thread sent to the moderator (does she exist?).

Good luck everyone on this Super Bowl Sunday!

Hello,
I think a maintenance discussion group would be great. I just finished CSD for the first time and lost 5 pounds. I have a couple more to lose. I found this site very helpful and will continue returning for support and ideas. Thanks.

Hi All! We need (2) Forums: Maintenance Forum and Maintenance Recipe Forum. So you know, Infopop only owns this software; they do not own the discussion board nor do they have any control over it.

I also would appreciate a CSD Maintenance Forum. Strategies and recipes to help keep the weight off plus the encouragement of all who come here.

I think a maintenance forum is a good idea- especially if it can be subdivided or something into negative calorie forum, ww forum, atkins etc etc etc

MAGA: If you're sending to moderator Liz, she doesn't appear to have any contact with the board any more .
I have no idea who's responsible for the site. Someone must be because, do you remember, we had the Doctor Phil adverts last year?
There's no pop ups and infopop is notorious for them, so its a mystery.
The only contact e mail I could find is one for infopop but they didn't reply to the 7 I sent them.
Somebody somewhere must be responsible... I assumed it was Liz, but her e mails were coming back 'failed delivery' but there's no getting away from it; Its hardly being run for nothing is it?
My concern is that someone somewhere in infopop will, out of the blue, discover this CSD site and shut it down. It might be a good idea for someone on the board to give an e mail address so that in the event we can contact each other and exchange e mails and get together to set up another site.

Toots are you saying we should leave well enough alone and settle for what we have. Which is working pretty well I might add.

I know when I originally came across this site I thought it was just a front to sell the Negative calorie diet and have really been surprised instead to find a wonderful suppport group.

I certainly would not want to risk loosing this site.

Me either! I never even thought about that possibility when I started the thread.

Out of habit I did not allow my e-mail address on this board but after a few weeks here I have no problem listing it:

yael23@nii.net

It would be just awful if the board disappeared! Perhaps I should mentiont the many copies of the Negative Calorie Diet book I've purchased retail for friends??? ;-)

Thanks for the email aeriel, but I can't get through! It keeps coming back to me. Can you confirm please? Is ityae 'letterl' or numeric 1? This is the message!

Thanks for putting your e-mail, much appreciated. I canít fathom this CSD site, its such a cosy, friendly little site and not a bit like an Infopop one.
It was originally set up by a woman called Liz, who had long gone before I joined. Infopop makes its money from Ďfreeí web pages, by running side adverts and pop ups, but we donít get them on ours. So someone somewhere has paid for the site at one time or another OR Infopop have forgotten about it. I just canít understand it.

I thought of clarifying this on my original post because the last part of the address does look like one-two-three. It isn't.

It's YAE letter L number twenty-three...you can copy and paste:

yael23@nii.net

23 is my favorite number, but it does make my name look funny.

Thanks for the info about the site. I think you are right, let's make sure Infopoop (really?) doesn't take a closer look at us.

Looking forward to your mail!

This is strange... I copied and pasted and still have it sent back. Going to try from my other e mail.THIS IS NOT GOING TO BEAT ME!

No. No luck on that one either and I copied and pasted it. I'm off to get my vegetable bake ready for tea now, will pop in later on. This is personal now aeriel... I'll mail you if it kills me!

No, not yet! Omigod, I just realized what's wrong, I used an old email address! I don't use that server any more. So sorry to all who tried to mail me, I guess I was having a senior moment. (I mean another senior moment.)

Here's the correct address:

yael23@verizon.net

I have to go to work at 2 pm but will happily answer any emails after 8 pm when I return!

Toots and cubby mom,

It's my fault. I made a mistake and gave an address on a server I don't use any more.

Here's the correct address:

yael23@nii.net

I'm really sorry...I was having (another) senior moment.

I have to go to work at 2 pm but will happily answer any email you send after I return at 8 pm.

Toots, Maga & Aeriel, I contacted infopop's corporate office. I received a reply to my e-mail address. I was told that this site uses infopop software but they do not own this board and cannot add or change anything here. It is only their software. I was advised to contact the "owner" through this site. If you scroll down to the bottom of the page it says "contact us". I sent e-mails a few times to "contact us" and it appeared that my problem(s) were resolved.

Well, someone pointed out that we have no moderator and the owner of the site, Infopop, seems pretty unaware of our existence. That's why we're blissfully free of pop-ups and solicitations here.

I thought it was better to keep a low profile with what we have, than to agitate and maybe get something we don't like as well. We can always start a Maintenance thread on one or two of the boards; we'll see if enough people are interested.

Hi all - a newby here; have been lurking the past couple of days. I plan to start on Wednesday. What a great group of folks on this forum!

I agree with aeriel and others that low-key is best, but in case something happens to the forum, below is a name of someone who may be responsible - I found this by doing a WHOIS on the URL - this person (or his company) appears to be paying for the URL on a yearly basis.

Wow, nice research PC! Thanks for the information. It may come in handy someday.

Azuquita, I will start a thread and see if anyone is interested. It could also be used by those who are taking a week or two off between rounds of the diet. Thanks for the vote of confidence!

I wouldn't worry about the expiry date just yet. I think that is just when the next payment is due for the URL. Whomever owns the URL has been paying since 2001 - since that person doesn't seem to be involved in the forums and the site, my guess is that he/she is likely holding on to the URL in the hopes of someday there being a market for it and they can sell the rights to it on Ebay or similar. Seems odd there is no one "out there" - its a nice site using what appears to be some pretty good software. Someone spent some time setting this up!

did anyone else have problems getting into the forum this morning (east coast time)? I couldn't get in for hours and was freaking - was sure the unnamed owner was lurking and turned us off for fun! Or for finding his email address and posting it!
