Just gotta say this

Postby MemberSince99 » Mon Jul 16, 2012 2:52 pm

I also watch another big forum on cards which I'll keep nameless to protect the guilty. They have some great posters on there who know their stuff obviously, and it gets more activity by far than here.

The problem with it is, so many of them just get nasty. They launch accusations against posters without knowing the facts and get really obnoxious. The mods seem to jump all over certain people for very little while others get away with just about anything. They pile on for anything from applying where they don't feel you should apply to you disagreeing with the policies of a bank they like. It's one thing to state your point of view and it's another thing to accuse someone of being a liar and conman and baby killer.

Anyway after reading that I'm glad I don't see that sort of thing here. We don't always agree naturally on everything, but at least it stays civil. that's not the case at some other sites.

I agree. I'm on Creditboards and Flyertalk. Creditboards is messier than a teenager's room, and Flyertalk members are keeping what they know like it's their family secret. That's why I love this forum.

it's nice to be able to ask questions and know that someone will at least attempt to help you out instead of just giving you a condescending reply

Yeah that's the thing. There are a ton of people on that particular forum. Plenty of them tend to get pretty rude and downright nasty at times. I don't miss that but it would be great if we got some more nice folks on here. Hopefully with time.

Completely agree. Being no stranger to hip hop forums or software development forums, I came to expect every forum to be dirty and full of anti-social bloggers who think they're better than everyone, but I was wrong. I love this forum. It's full of people who actually are interested in helping others with advice. Awesome site!
