I was a senior Genius on that "other" board for quite some time. They have their strengths and the general news content on that "other" board is undeniably excellent. However, as we've seen with many boards that grow past a certain size, the juvenile members start showing up and the quality of the mods starts going down and the value in continuing to participate starts to become questionable. I raised concerns with the management at that "other" board and was consistently insulted. So I've turned off my account there and moved over to this board.
I've been a lurker here for a long time. This board needs to grow content but the content it has is excellent and indeed very much "just the news you want to read" without all the other nonsense.
This is a testiment to the management of this site. Good job.
While I had thousands of posts at that "other" site, I'm not impressed with big post counts by members just posting nonsense to increase their membership status. That is a culture that BBOS seems to excel at .... really just the news and not the nonsense.
I hope I can learn a few things here and offer some contributions in the time ahead. Thanks for allowing me to participate.
