Well, I wouldn't say that. But it's funny that people hate on our forum. They are normally the ones viewing the forum as a guest anyway. Sure, there's a lot of shit members but they are good for a laugh, and it's good to see a bunch of people with actual entertaining personalities. Most of these forums have dull, boring members with no personality, no sense of humor and occasionally a couple of 50 year olds that have no business being on a discussion forum.
I only actively (sort of) belong to one other forum at the moment and it's nothing like this one. It's a film-makers forum and everyone on it seems to be really nice. It's a bit niche though so probably only attracts people genuinely interested.
PM me some of the other forums you're talking about and I'll happily spend a drunken evening giving them the treatment.
And by that I mean THE TREATMENT.
I have noticed this as well, I am a member on a hobby forum and they are all kinda boring and stodgey, it's like a library, and their mods are nowhere near as fun as ours, they are sticlers for rules. We can't even discuss another memebrs banishment like we do here. This place is fun and entertaining, I can't even imagine how long my work day would seem if not for this place!
I agree with Waz who probably agrees with you. I used to mod a cannabis forum and it was a lot of fun, but mostly because of the private mod section. There was no Rants and discussing banned members was supposed to be dealt with sternly. But obviously being all pot heads there was some serious fun had. It's gone now, closed in 2008 (was a very sour affair), but at it's peak it was second only to Grass City, which was full of cunts.
