    Here and the TWiT Network forums (towncommons.twit.tv) are where I am most active. Also some on evdoforums.com, and I just started posting on the Radio Reference forums. I used to be active on the forum at techreport.com too, but I lost interest there. Too many egos trying to prove who is the smartest.

    I spend a lot of time on the TWiT IRC channel.

    Yes, I am a nerd.

    I used to be a frequent contributor on a Canadian canoeing forum, but those guys don't care about how I burn green wood in an old smoke dragon, so I came here instead. %-P

    I used to have accounts on corral and stangnet, I haven't posted or read over there in years. I have a low 9 second fox body that just sits in my garage anymore. :lol: I wonder if my account is still active, hmmmmmmm I've owned a bunch of fox bodies over the years, my first was an 85 GT, I still have a sweet spot for those to this day.

    I've visited/posted on a bunch of sites over the years. Mostly car related, snowmobile, dirt bike, chainsaw, PWC, hunting or stove related type sites.

    Here is where I kill the bulk of my down time at work. I occasionally visit Arborist Site, but rarely post.
    I used to be addicted to Fordification.com a site for '67-'72 Ford trucks. That where Flatbedford started.
    I occasionally visit other Ford truck sites.
    Flatbedford can also be found at a few IH Cub Cadet tractor sites, and MTF
    There are a few other truck or tractor sites that mostly lurk on too.
    I have a Facebook account, but actually post very infrequently.
    So, basically, wood burning, trucks, and tractors. I guess I am a guy.

    I used to frequent code forums, but don't anymore. There are way to many arrogant, overbearing "No-it-alls" on the ones I was on.

    Started on BBS's, then usenet circa "94. Then when the internet got pictures and such, went to web forums. Everything from computer security to home theater to linux to computer hardware to router configuration to wood burning. However, I am usually a lurker and don't post too often. There are forums I have registered on several years ago, that I never posted on.

    Ive been a member of offtopic for over 6 years now. The threads move fast and you need to have a thick skin on there. I also post on nastyz28.com a forum for second gen camaros. The fellowship on there is a lot better than offtopic

    Code forums are cool ONLY WHEN you need a snippet of code.

    Other than that, I'll admit right up that 90% of those dude and dudettes are smarter than I when it comes to code. I was not born with that kind of grey matter (I'm a generalist, not a specialist)

    U usta be on a certain big bowhunting site. I told a prolific member exactly what I thought of his homophobia and racism in *very concise* terminology and was invited to not return there. There was another forum with just friends from the bowhunting site- there's maybe 8 of us that keep up. It's less about bowhunting and more personal now. I've known those guys for 10+years and have met a few of them in person/been hunting with them etc.

    Isn't it amazing how close bow hunting and, for instance, gay people...are related?

    Their Ash Can/Inglenook was called "Community Forum". There were a few sane voices, and a lot of backslapping Ditto Heads and worse. Religious zealots that wanted to argue about creation science, but would disappear or become bad philosophers when actual science was discussed. Others railed about Jewish conspiracies, the homosexual agenda, or what people of color were doing to the country.

    Lucky that one friend had started a site for the sane in the group- good friends with a variety of political leanings.

    I saw an ATV site that was at one time pretty popular go down hill pretty quickly when a few idiots in certain forums started spewing more negative posts about everything under the sun except for ATV related topics. I was even made Moderator a while back . . . but nowadays the site is so dead I can stay off it for days and when I go back find just a handful of new posts since so many folks were driven away to other forums.
