    I was a message board virgin when I found the FoRT. And I've been faithful ever since.

    honestly, there are much worse places than FORT.
    newbies on Slashdot are often surprised. all the trolls, spewing out god knows what, everywhere, all the time. most people just put their filters on at 2 and leave it at that, over there.

    As much as I have had issues here at times, I do appreciate how things are done, and the fact that people here tend to not be so.... snippy? (not the right word, but so what) as other forums of varied sorts out there.

    The only other forums I'm actually a part of are support forums. Support for the server farm I use, support for the forum software we use, etc. I'm fairly active in them, but it's boring stuff like upgrading to new versions, bug reports, and that kind of stuff.

    I used to be a part of several Yahoo Groups, but when they merged with the other Yahoo service, I dumped them.

    I used to post at Forum 4 Fans. I think they are still around.

    i post at rtvp and on the cbsportsline forums (mostly college football and basketball), but it's tough being in the west as most sports forums are heavily east coast teams biased...ya get ran over quickly trying to support/defend a Pac-10 team

    I have been on several message boards. I was not impressed with any and they failed to capture my attention for more than a week. Sher went on and on about this site that had all of these great people. She gave me the link and I lost it and did not think much about it. She kept bringing it up and finally I wondered over to FORT and signed up to see what the fuss was about. I have been here ever since. I have looked around at other boards, but none are as great. So, this is home.

    I post at several other boards. All of them are really nice and each have a different flavour, so that I can choose the one(s) that suite the mood I'm in the best.

    I love FoRT. I have to participate in my local Mom's club yahoo group, and I wish it were run half as well as FoRT. The flame wars on that group are insane - plus, we meet each other in the flesh so it's really awkward. Most of us are afraid to post so that the next bake sale we don't buy an arsenic cookie.

    Give me more of FORT any day!

    Me too, sheela - I looked around a little bit first and decided that this was a "safe" place to start at. These days I'm braver . Though I avoid the inane flaming war sites, it gets so boring.
