    The personalities of the of the forums vary from hobby to hobby, and from people to people. Dare I say the orchid societies may look down at us CP'ers, we can never escape the levels society.

    Or some groups of people are just not as 'nice' as others for some reason or the other. Like we're a lot nicer here, that's the personality of the forum, just like that orchid forums might be like that, where it's been turned into some authoritarian society where peolpe who have no type of power in real life, come to pertend to be something else online.

    Many good CP forums, but as mentioned this the most active, and most friendly. Actually most Cp forums are, I think the bigger issue is activity levels on other forums, at least for me.

    I agree. I have never met a person here on this forum that I didn't like. Everyone for the most part is friendly. Even though I have had a difference of opinions with a few people here in some of the General Discussions threads we can still discuss things CP or otherwise and be friendly about it.

    I like talking to people who are different than me just as much as those whose opinions are similar. It helps us all understand where each other is coming from a little better and hopefully gain new perspective.

    I think what makes this forum unique is that even the old pros are friendly and willing to share knowledge and not condescending or snide.

    But the joke's on them because insectivorous plants are infinitely more cool.

    I love orchids, but they only flower every now and then....

    Even the lowliest typical Dionaea is still an awesome Dionaea.

    Things have calmed down and the trolls are gone for the most part... TF is the perfect place for a seasoned grower or just someone starting out. Hopefully the word spreads around more than once.

    I wasn't aware we were looked down upon. The crazy orchid growers I know really seem to like Neps in any case.

    TF IS awesome!

    I've been on some...interesting... forums, and this is one of the best. FeeBay got really clique-y and hostile, aquaforum had some really nasty dirty trolls and was only moderated if you begged hard enough, and the mantis & roach forums I've found are both in permeant hibernation, with the most recent posts being somewhen around last Christmas.

    I must say, though, that there is another awesome forum I frequent, a bearded dragon dedicated site. It's the same story here-- it's heavily moderated by ACTIVE members. A very friendly and helpful place. In fact, there are several "This place is awesome!" threads up right now, LoL!

    Thanks, Andrew and everyone, for keeping it fun!

    ~Edit~
    I forgot one! There's more of a bulletin board system I'm a part of, too. Remarkably, it's only lightly moderated, by stealth. The worst we ever get is occasional spam. Name-calling is limited to "scallawag" and "geezer", both usually accurate.

    The worst argument I've ever seen is whether the Potter 15 (14!) or Montgomery 15 is the fastest, a debate that's put to the test year after year--still inconclusive. LoL!
