I, too, used to be a member of that Rochester based forum. I've been looking for a place that's here for the pits/mixes and not for anything else, and from what I've read, I'm in the right place.
On that group I was skatingbadge and Remington should remember me.
I don't have any pits currently, but rescued one in 2006 from a gassing shelter in Georgia and was finally able to find him a home last year. His name was/is Watson, and perhaps others on this forum will remember that name. His pic was my avatar.
I live in the DC area with two 10-year old rescues - a scottie and a "chocker" (chow/cocker) and while I can't foster or adopt, I want to help out in any other way I can to get more pits/mixes out of the shelters, into good homes, and educate people about the breed.
