Can't find a Psychopath forum I had seen way back.

The forum was made up of psychopaths talking about their experiences, points of view and things they've done. It was fascinating to read and learn about. What prompted me to look into it back then was that I'm quite certain my father is one. The only results I've been finding are support forums for people who've been in relationships with psychopaths.

Not to hijack, but fwiw The Psychopath Test is an insightful and highly entertaining read.

Beware: one of the points made in the book is that once you learn about this stuff, you start suspecting that all sorts of people in your life are psychopaths. It happens to everyone. So maybe don't be too quick to label your dad (though, who knows, he might be, and, either way, I'm really sorry!).

Quisp Lover: Thanks for the link. And yeah, I know what you mean :) Though, there's nothing like a good dose of paranoia to keep you on your toes.

Dr. Roberts forum-I don't know if this is the one you were thinking of, but many psychopaths post here about their thinking.

Sounds like something on reddit. Especially one of those topics where people share secrets with throwaway accounts.

There were a few "AMAs" ("Ask Me Anything") on Reddit by psychopaths.

Here's a list
