I asked a question on the recent TiBette thread on why they choose to use a forum so heavily populated with shaft, and it's pretty much been the same answer thus far: this is the only message board (excluding the defunct RMMB) that is not "LOL or emoticon heavy" and seemingly the only board with funny and smart people posting on it. Boy, ain't THAT the truth. When the RMMB shut down, not knowing this place was up and running for ten long days I searched for a new message board to find funny people that I could exchange horror stories with, and strike three. Strike THIRTY, actually. I found a site that links you to the thirty most popular message boards on the web, and one by one tried them out, finding out they had one thing in common: they ALL stunk like undouched vag. Annoying cutesy gifs, emoticons that look like psychedelic glyphs, and endless web abbreviations from people too lazy to type entire words. Let's not forget the endless "only my opinions matter because I'm the only open-minded human being on earth" flame wars that errupt every five goddamn seconds. I tried to start up a "LOLfats" board on one site and was crucified by these unfunny prudes for it. Fuck off. I'm not too experienced with message boards. Before TiB, the only ones I frequented are RMMB and the hilarious (and terminated) The Phat Phree because they were the only ones that were not only great, but just plain tolerable. Focus: How are your experiences with other message boards? What the ones to try and the ones to avoid in your opinion?
