CompuServe’s forums, which still exist, are finally shutting down on 20171215

An era ends: [Archive.isCompuServe’s forums, which still exist, are finally shutting down

Before there was a World Wide Web, a sizable chunk of all meaningful conversation between computer users happened in the forums at CompuServe, which was the dominant online service until AOL came along. There was a CompuServe forum for everything from PC hardware to comic books, the signal-to-noise ratio was generally high, and … they if you … will be removed from what remains of CompuServe on December 15.
