Okay, this list is totally self-promotional but it is supporting a good cause. I am trying to gauge interest in a forum on the site. IN order to do so you have to create a forum, which I have. Next you have to invite people to the forum and this is my invitation to all those loyal readers and fans of TopTenz.net. So please take a moment and visit our new TopTenz forum (3/14/09) and add your thoughts or suggestions. Thank you in advance.
