    Is it just me, or are posts on TPR boards belligerent and uninformative, while posts here are friendly and helpful?


    SDN is to TPR as Mogwai are to Gremlins

    (So if this forum gets wet or eats after midnight we are in trouble!) ....I need to shut up.

  2. SDN Members don't see this ad. About the ads.

    This is a silly comparison -- they're not even in the same league. It's like comparing CNN with the Jerry Springer show. Ok, so there's a bit more levity here than on CNN, but you get the idea. ;)

    I think the difference is that people on TPR post anonymously. Nobody knows who you are, so you can say whatever you want. Here, people get to know you a little better.

    I admit that I do read that board occasionally, just for the Jerry Springer-type entertainment. :)

    I have been known to visit TPR more than is good for me. If it weren't for SDN, I'd be hopelessly addicted to that drivel. TPR is a terrible source of information, although there are a few nice people there (anyone heard of ms4/md0 and DMX?) The Jerry Springer and Gremlins analogies are great. ;)

    oooooooooooooooh my . ..I had never visited there before, but I did just now because you all gave the link, and, after reading a few posts, felt like I needed to go run and hide in a corner in order to avoid the agression! Good thing for the little "x" button on the top right corner of my pc windows . .. not goin' back there anytime soon. :) You guys are awesome.

    I found out about SDN on TPR. Some nice person posted the link there. It seems to me that after that, participation on that forum slowed WAY down. I know I never looked back.
    Well, actually every now & then I go check it out again and can't believe the continued low level of discourse and meanspiritedness of so many of the posts. I feel deeply indebted to whoever posted that link, because SDN has been such an awesome source of information and support throughout this "application process from hell."
