... although too many ads may make them seem spammy.
Yep ... I agree they're both well made, but personally, if I'm looking for construction information it's not the site I'd sit and read, because it feels spammy, and all I saw on the second page was ads. I could have missed the text, but if I did, that doesn't say 'quality find' to me and if I didn't then all that's there is ads, which doesn't say quality either.
Too much monetization relative to information, imo...
As far as DaniWeb goes, it's really well made, but what content besides the 5 lead-ins to the forum and forum info on the home page is unique? I see news repeats, digg, facebook, and a tag cloud ... I'm not going to go any farther with an analysis, because I don't think we're supposed to do site analysis outside of the review forum, but I will say I can understand how it was hit, even though it looks great.
