After lurking for about a month, actively for a couple weeks, I must say I'm very impressed with this board. More mature and witty than I expected. Some recent threads had gotten ugly, but it appears the management has taken action and I approve of that. I like the forum layouts and the subtle usage of colors. So many other boards use strong colors which detract from readability. I also like the off-the-wall polls. My reasons for joining are information and fun.
