Lately I've been feeling pretty isolated because none of my friends really share my views on civil rights or social justice. The people I know who are more progressive are really militant and extreme and they're not very helpful to be around either due to their rather harsh approach to their various causes.

Looking for a community/forum where I can learn more about networking, code, security, and OS-independent CS topics
I'm looking for a forum where I can ask questions about networking, security, coding, operating systems, web design, etc. There are many of these out there, but I'd like to find a single community which covers all these topics more or less equally (so it isn't a Linux forum with a small section on BSD, or a coding forum with a small section on networking). I'd like it to be the sort of forum where users stay around for several years as they learn and contribute at different levels, with high literacy and education-to-spam levels. Could I have your recommendations please?
I've been toying with the idea of starting a website that's sort of half forum, half store. I have a general understanding of how the web works, but I haven't done anything web design-ey for about ten years, and even then I was definitely quite amateur. What would I need to do to get going?

What are the best online communities for poets? This previous thread says that poetryslamming was pretty good, but it looks dead now. Are there any others?
Why did my favorite forum just transform into what appears to be some sort of foreign-language YouTube? [more inside]

I own a forum where the majority of our posters are minors. What can I (or should I) do about a user who is sending sexual advances to other members via our PM system? He keeps coming back under new names after we ban him and we aren’t sure what legal obligations we may have regarding this.
