About

Welcome to the Doomstead Diner!  Here you will find a great hub for discussion and information pertaining to the ongoing Economic Collapse of the Industrial Economy.

DD is the result of the last 5 years of research and debate we have been engaged in on many other boards, including the Reverse Engineering Yahoo Group, where the founding members of this board all come from.  There are many great sources of information out there still, good Blogs and a few good message boards as well.  Here at the DD, our goal is to bring together all the information we can to assist in planning for the world to come.

Blogs and Message Boards both have their limitations, so to overcome them we have integrated both formats into this website.  All the posts made on our Blog are mirrored  inside the database of the Message Board, and are categorized for easier research of older posting.  We have enabled HTML and Photo and Video embedding for any member who posts up inside the message board area, so you can compose your own articles complete with all the multimedia you would like to include in the body of the article.  This takes some playing around with, but we will have an FAQ section here to answer questions on how you do this.

You should find Navigation and Participation fairly easy as we have endeavored to resolve this situation as it exists on most Blogs by combining and synchronizing different systems.  Not an easy task mind you!  Any issues that do crop up we will handle in the FAQ.  Any Member of the Board can compose articles with Graphics and Multimedia.  Editorially, really good stuff posted by the members will show up on the Blog as well, hopefully looking mostly the same although the coding is different so that can alter the look, at least that is what we think right now.

There are no explicit “rules” or Code of Conduct here at DD.  We do however hope that members will keep in check the temptations to ad hom arguments and excessive Napalm.  If it gets out of control, the Mod staff here reserves the right to ban posting.  No posts will ever be edited for content, it either posts up or it doesn’t or gets deleted.

We hope that all members will be respectful of each other and maintain decent decorum in the discussions and debates, and understand their legal responsibilities for what they write.  We provide the Forum for discussion, but we do not control what you choose to keyboard out.  This responsibility ultimately falls on you.

With all that in mind, we Welcome you here to join with us on the Doomstead Diner as we investigate, discuss and debate the ramifications of the Economic Collapse of Industrial Civilization.  Often referred to in shorthand as TEOTWAWKI.  The End of the World as We Know It.

" As a daily reader of all of the doomsday blogs, e.g. the Diner, Nature Bats Last, Zerohedge, Scribbler, etc… I must say that I most look forward to your “off the microphone” rants. Your analysis, insights, and conclusions are always logical, well supported, and clearly articulated – a trifecta not frequently achieved."- Joe D
