Same as regards the no butt kissing ..
This place .as is with no bots? speed etc ..it smokes ..why on earth anyone would want to ask some one who has hand built this lil' diamond ..to switch it for zircon ..'cos some people's bots etc cant play nice ..beats me ..
BBS ..work of art ..could never afford it ..respects ..BT
( gets lots of respect from the less reputable areas of the net also ..you wouldn't know 'cos g doesnt "yet" 'dex IRC and non gmail emails ....doesnt mean they aren't trying tho ..)
Go entirely private .. ..no ads ..premod a few more threads ..( that is more important for many than you might think Brett ) sometimes the S/N ratio attracts "non thinking"" .."me too" posted in some thread .. fora posters and "trolls" ;) ..and many more would sign if the S/N dropped .did I say "pre mod more"? :).( sometimes resembles the wurldz ..ick ..ick .. )
then take your time to decide how to filter the crap and the se"s and bots ..
site search ..yeah it's a pain ..always was ..but most people help each other out with pointers from old bookmarks etc for now and there is always this method [webmasterworld.com]for now ..
no long term view ...in the eyes of many ..or only take ..no give or discuss and learn ..in their heads ..
