I haven't seen the threads that caused this action, but I would like to express how I feel about Whiteblaze.
The WB forum and Hammock Forums are two totally different feels. When I go to WB, I often find myself searching through many meaningless threads and posts in order to get to anything with substance. Here, I often find myself having to back away from the computer and take a break after trying to conceptualize all the different projects, modifications, and innovations that forum members have come up with. There are probably about ten things I can think of on my project list that are HF creations. It is almost too much information here at HF to really enjoy the conversation, but that why it is so valuable. To me, the difference is sort of like the difference between reading an encyclopedia and a grocery line tabloid. Know what I mean?
