Forgive me if this question has already been posed; I wasn’t sure how to search for it, as “why,” “do,” and “you” are all under the four-letter seach limit.
But anyway, back to the question: If you have been a member at other message boards (or are still) why do you prefer the SDMB (if you do–if not, I’m interested in that as well!) If you left other message boards for the SDMB, why?
Personally, I prefer the SDMB for several reasons:
[ul][li]I prefer the set up–the vB code is easy to use, the forums are neat and well organized, and it’s easy to read and discern posts from replies. You don’t have to click something to read replies.[/li][li]For the most part, the posters here are friendly, supportive, caring, empathetic and funny. I’m not ashamed to post things here and I know what I say will almost always be met with good humour.[/li][li]Posters here have spectacular grammar and spelling, and can deal with it if they are corrected. Very few people have had fits for being told they are wrong.[/li][li]Posters here are diverse, accepting, and considerate. Much of the time, the thread title is relevant to the thread. People aren’t flamed for being different.[/li][li]The board itself is diverse. It’s not strictly anything. There is a forum for everything and a forum for everything else. So long as you can categorize it properly, you can post it.[/li][li]Posters are helpful.[/li][li]The whole community is like a huge family![/ul][/li]
Now that I’ve rambled on, what are your thoughts?
