Pagan Forum Alliance


The Pagan Forum Alliance is a "webring-like" association of publicly accessible Pagan-oriented forums and mailing lists which adhere to the following standards:

The above standards are admittedly and purposely subjective in part as they are designed to be flexible rather than dogmatic.

Yes indeed. It doesn't seem like such a bad idea now does it? I mean, we want our Pagan forums and email lists to be "quality" right? But who decides this? And what criteria do they base it on? Basically, it's a "popularity" contest. If you are "approved of" (that is, if the ideas promoted by the leaders of a given forum are agreed with by the PFA screening committee, then you get included. If not, then you are excluded. In other words, this is merely a personal "favorites list" maintained by the members of "The Cauldron," who are trying to be some kind of Pagan approval board. They also want to be sure everyone is following "their" interpretation of what a copyright policy should be (iow, they are self-appointed copyright police). To make it even more fun, they won't even publish here what that interpretation is!

It's bad enough that we have Christian fundamentalists checking us out all the time. To have fellow Pagans doing it too is just too much. Get a life and go back to church (where you apparently belong)!

Unlike a "real" webring, Pagan Forum Alliance members simply include a link to this page on their forum or mailing list's web site. Nothing fancy, but there are no broken links as sites go up and down to "break the ring."

Here are the Members to boycott
