    Two completely different subjects my friend. The forum is called Tarantula Forum ,not I Hate Arachnoboards forum. But yes that sounds like a great idea. If you think of anything else just PM me.

    Ahhh, I see signatures are not shown on the phone. So my little joke was a lost cause..how sad. I think I'll keep the signature for awhile anyway. :)

    Everyone has a favorite forum... all are different, and there's always one that remains your "go-to" forum. No need to bash other forums. It's tacky and disrespectful of the forum you're ON when you bash another one. They all have their info to share. Gather the info you need from all and only post on the one you like most.

    Problem solved.

    Look, just so we're absolutely clear, I don't know where you're from, but here in the states we feel very strongly about free speech, so if I don't like something, and feel the need to criticize it, I'll do so, and how you, or anyone else feels about it just doesn't concern me much. Clear enough for ya? Good talk.

    @Madzoohouse Agreed! you need a very slippery 2nd skin for most forums lol

    For what it's worth i agree with Mass. When my son first got his GBB I browsed AB and found many people there just as described. I then came to this forum and found it to be more helpful and friendly many times over. This has become my go-to, along with Tom's Big Spiders (thanks Tomoran! my son was excited when we saw you were on these forums as we'd read a number of your blogs before joining here :)) and a few other blogs and websites.

    I agree completely. I am a newbie and there are already a good 5 or 6 regular contacts who are all friendly and help you around the forum. I am becoming a bit addicted tbh!

    They've "allowed" me back but the place leaves a bad taste in my mouth... The mods are far too strict and seem to take pleasure in being authoritarian A holes... It may be a smaller community here but it's a great one! :) i-love-you-a-lottle-81911.png

    And therein lies one of the problems. Authoritarian douche nozzles. I like the fact that I'm on a forum where I can express myself, if I desire. I don't need some random shit stain telling me what I can say, or how I need to say it, for the purpose of "keeping things friendly". I like having Enn keep me in check, though, cause she's nice enough to delete drunkin pissed off rants and then politely tell me to quit being an asshole. Nor do I need a forum that is dominated by what I would refer to as an irritating, crotchety old lady with no life. Hi poke. I notice you don't post here anymore? Is it because someone might tell you to stfu? Look at some of his posts on this forum..like when he said choosing a spider by color is foolish. Foolish, for not following his stupid old lady ladder system..wouldn't want one of these dangerous animals to kill you..jesus Shampain quit stirring me up, im drinking..and how the hell did they allow you back? You're worse than me :D..then again, I never tried, nor will I. The more advanced info is there for guests to read, and I've covered much of it. I posted about being able to use the classifieds there, and only three days later, they blocked me. Don't you arachnotards know that people post sales in multiple forums? Good try, douchnozzles. I can get anything I'm willing to pay for :)
    To give an example, I recently gave a baby Lp to a friends son. When asked about research, I told him to get what he needs from ab and here, but to post here if he had a question not covered by his research. I told him not to post at ab. Because I don't want a ten year old kid to be picked apart for posing a question to other hobbyists..he wants to be an entomologist. I figured why ruin his ambitions? The negativity, the toxic cloud of smarmy lil "I know something you don't know" petty little fucks..I used to beat the living shit out of people like that..hmm, I did it again..

    Yeah you're exactly right bro! There's some great people there though but sadly they get overshadowed by the "I know everything" crew... It's the youngsters whom I feel sorry for... I think it was either you or Phil that said "There's no such thing as a stupid question in this hobby" and it's so true... Poke54 or whatever it's called seems to think he/it is a God of ts and the hotter ones are only available to him, that's how I got banned from AB haha arguing with that mutant! I told the OP of the thread to get a pokie if she wanted then that prick chimed In and all hell broke loose lol... I'd love to see it venture over here, I'd slap the smug outta it! lol
