Glad you like it here. I have to agree and say it's the most respectful bunch of members I've been part of a forum with. I believe everyone here is intelligent for the most part and has a general mind for science that lets us post based on fact and not emotion. That keeps a lot of the nonsense at bay. But as your Premium-ness knows, there's other benefits that keep us in check in fear of being booted and missing out.

People here are fun, sometimes crude, but almost never mean-spirited. Really, its a great joy to be able to spend time here. Thanks

That's the same attitude I got from yet another brewing board, which is why I came here 3 years ago.

I agree with Martin Luther aka Pappers, it is a great place and by far the nicest forum I've ever been a member.

Although sometime I am mean spirited. Can't really help it because I was born with the bitch gene that rears its ugly head sometimes but I do try to keep it down as much as possible. OTOH, I don't like shopping. don't bitch or nag my hubby, and I make beer so I can't be that bad.

Thanks for the kind words.

I contribute the success of this board to the fact that we drink. You know how some are mellow drunks, some are mean drunks, some are obnoxious drunks, etc? We're what my dad calls "good drunks".

Seriously, some have not liked the moderation (calling it censorship) of the board, but we try hard to have a welcoming and non-threatening environment. People can feel free to post their questions without fear of flaming or snide remarks. I think we all genuinely like each other, and that shows!

You know what? If you can endure us in a religious thread in the debate forum I salute you! I know we can get a bit testy over there, but I found your debate style to be informative and considerate...even if you are wrong . Seriously, good to have you on here...spread the word and bring more brewers like yourself. Cheers and happy friday all!

I think this place is great. That said tho', I'd rather lurk BeerAdvocate (and I do) than RateBeer.

As bad as the BA boards are now, it used to be a LOT worse. I will say that I did notice a lot more sparks flying once BA opened it's doors to RB's.

I hang out on the BeerAdvocate forums a little bit (Lawnboy33). There seems to be a lot of snobbery and douchebaggery in the beer forums but the Homebrewing forum isn't as bad. I tend to just help answer noobs' simple questions and offer suggestions and stay out of the drama.

I used to hang out at BA about 5 or 6 years ago when I first started brewing. Seemed like the biggest attitude problems were the head honchos themselves. **** 'em.

This forum is great and naturally low in douchebags.
