No smilies, no avatars, no flashing gifs. Just discuss the issues of the day, from last night's telly via football to science or philosophy.


Hi! For a while I was able to host JUSTtheTalk for free. Sadly, all good things come to an end.

Both for personal reasons and also because the site needed to run on a bigger server I've had to move everything to a new hosting company. This now costs me a minimum of £150 per month. I hate having to ask for money - it's always been my intention that the site would be free to use for all users - but for the moment at least I can't afford to fund it myself.

Any donations to help keep the site running will be very gratefully, and anonymously, accepted. It's not compulsory and nobody will ever know if you do or don't chip in. I'm afraid there are no special privileges for those who do; I think it would just be a source of friction.

The donate button changes colour depending on how short of funds we are. If there are fewer than 3 months running costs in the pot then the button will be red. If there are fewer than 6 months running costs in the pot then the button will be amber. Any more than this and the button will be grey.

To donate with PayPal:

For those who don't want to use PayPal, donations can also be paid directly into the following bank account:
