I was on BuzzDash for years. When it closed it gave us a month to prepare. Then I was told about SH by a friend from BuzzDash and went there. They deactivated me about two weeks before they changed. I went back as someone else, and they caught me pretty quick and deactivated me again. Then I found out from someone I had the e-mail of that they had changed into something else entirely. I've joined several different opinion sites since, but mainly stay on Facebook.

I was on Ask for five years. Enjoyed it very much. We had a good thing going there.

Apart from that I've had two chess sites taken over by rivals and assimilated (a euphemism for closed down). I've been using the Internet since 2004 so that's not too bad.

Only Sodahead , absolute Bastards not giving us any Warning and just pulling the plug on us.

That's weird , I can't Vote for anyone.

None that mattered.

Soda Head was the big one.  I'd been on for 6 years.  There have been a few others I've tried, I don't recall that they closed......I left because they sucked basically.
