- Science-Inculcated Culture (I moderate, so stayed joined... for now)
- Free Palestine
- Canary In The Mine - dubious
- Spin Junkies
- Seize the Time-Black Panther Party, 60's & Beyond - Bobby Seale's community; left reluctantly
- Actionable Liberty - Jacob Zolt's community; not quite my cup of tea
- Rootstrikers: may rejoin at some point when I have more time
- Experimental Music - when I can listen to random music whenever I feel like it...
- Synthesizers! - cool, but just don't have the time
