Sometimes I ask myself that very question.

It's all the things you listed except the curiosity. I get frustrated at times wit the people who can't seem to post an answer without being critical or "snarky". Otherwise, it's a great place to teach and learn.

I started conversing on this forum because I bought a trawler and I wanted to meet others that have the same brand and learn more about trawlers and passage making. I also found the folks here to be very polite, helpful and generally a cut above other similar forums. I don't use The Hull Truth anymore. Kind of rude over there. At least that was my experience. I was having trouble doing something I forget now but instead of helpfulness I got comments like "what's it worth to you?". I finally gave up and never went back. I have no patience for sarcasm. The moderators also showed a thinly veiled contempt for certain brands. I was shocked at that. I'm not a thin skinned person. You don't run a business with employees for 30 years being thin skinned. I just don't like to waste my time with that kind of behavior anymore. I know there are a lot of nice folks over there. Many of them frequent both sites. But when the moderator sets a tone like that it's time to go elsewhere.

I had some pretty negative experiences over on THT. There were several really bigoted, ignorant, mean people there. I found myself on the verge of argument several times before I realized it was a toxic environment and not at all worth my time. Sounds like Iím not the only one to feel that way.

I'm here because when I say I like the sound of my Screaming Jimmies at least one other person agrees with me, sometimes even more than one.

I agree 100%. I've been gone from there for years.

My dad told me... you know something that everyone you meet doesn't. Be careful to whom you tell what! And, listen carefully to what they divulge.

A lot of forums on the internet are like that. I follow one for radio control airplanes and the people who post the most are the most obnoxious.

Yup! Bunch of pretty good folks on TF. Smart too... Many are specialized and nearly all are really ready to assist in whatever way they can.

Occasionally a dumb-assed troll, or some other sort of demented bugger comes aboard. Usually it takes TF "family" not too long of belittling he or she before the creep heads for the hills. Not recalling the handles of a few really nerdy nerds that just couldn't take a hint... then in that case there are the Mods, God bless em - who excommunicate the dummies before they drive us nuts!!

Happy TF Communication Daze! - Art
