Yes indeed sometimes it has a calling for those who belong there ;)

Room for both forums IMHO. I have long been a massive advocate of this forum and up until recently, was the ONLY forum I used, which in the main is usually very laid back and non-confrontational.

its worth noting that even regular members on here also have AB accounts and have succumbed to "the calling"...so no more member 'slaying' I say before this forum loses its wonderful appeal.

I view it as watching crime documentaries. I have no interest in breaking the law but it’s interesting to see how low a dishonest person is willing to go to get what they want. No matter how close to them the victim may be :)

I went on AB a few times, didn't take long to figure it wasn't the right place for my 9 years old and I :)
As I did before I like to compare the two forums as one being your neighborhood mom and pop shop and the other one being a Walmart, on a sunday at 3:15 AM.
:D

I agree with you - this place is friendly and welcoming and it's a nice little community feel... AB is hardline a will flame people if they make the slightest mistake not very welcoming for beginners or anyone wanting help or advice.. I have seen quotes about AB boasting more members but hey let's have quality over quantity ;)

AB is like a fast moving river, rife with experienced hands but steeped with peril and shame.

TF is like a warm lagoon with clear and calm waters, abundantly tranquil, informative and inspirational.

I'm less active there than I am here.
