I was really glad to stumble on this thread. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one that feels this way.
What I try to imagine is that there are people on the board considering my viewpoint but not inspired to post because I do the same with other posters. But I have marvelled at my apparent 'thread-slaying' abilities.
I love this board because the posters are so polite, even when disagreeing, and trolling is not tolerated. It's my favorite one!
My one and only little complaint would be 'like' buttons. I used to admin my own smf forum (until we sold our site) and this just wasn't an option a few years ago.
But I hope this thread keeps going!
