Well, it appears that that ‘other site’ has blocked me from viewing their Forum pages. They’re doing IP blocking at the very least (it would have been simple to get my IP from my partial registration process and we do know that they’re reading everything that’s posted here). I say that, as I was able to get access to the Forum pages from my smartphone. However, they’ve also now restricted certain topics (particularly the one in which their members were sounding off on this Forum) to ‘members only’.
I never really went to that site much, only checking it out recently because of the transmitter shootout results – and then I was curious to see the train wreck responses to questions regarding that shootout.
I’ll just go back to Carl’s post a while back – I much prefer this Forum with its open membership, which encourages free flow of ideas (as opposed to the entourage style of the ‘other site’, where if you don’t agree with the head guy, you could be out or never in). Yes, there are potential problems with moderating here as discussion can get heated, but overall it’s much more intellectually stimulating, factual and refreshing.
And that’s all I’m going to say on this subject.
