    I don't want to start a BB war but I am curious if anyone posts or lurks on other forums and see comments about forums that you also post or lurk on.

    I am not asking for any BB names but just generaly is this common among BB's ?

    I don't. This is the only one I go to. It's by far the best I've ever seen as far as information and knowledge. You can't beat the quality of posters here and the wealth of knowledge you gain.

    You are part of a click Applesause so I can understand your answer but I do find different "atmospheres" in each BB's.

    I guess it is just that I feel that I am stepping off the plank eveytime I post here and that is not the case elsewhere.

    I've broused through a few others from time to time, but there are a lot of them that seem quite childish and silly. Others seem to be used mostly by younger people, (teens, and yonger).
    A very few seem to be there to put down and talk about people on OTHER boards, even!!!
    So, I like it here. Friendly, easy to use, and helful in all sorts of amazing ways. I've even met some people from here, and am happy to say that nearly all have become friends. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    I joined this bb, after a long time of knowing about it and reading it randomly, and find that aside from a yahoo group where I have some "friends" and only remain active due to those friends, this is the best board out there.

    Everyone here is SOOO nice compared to other places and the knowledge...WOW! The whole stupid priceless commercial thing runs through my head but the folks here with their vast knowledge, the breakdown of the different disciplines so no one battles over who is right or wrong, and so on is just fantastic (and priceless http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif )!

    Um, um, um....

    Yeah, I know. The thing is...I am not a football fan I'm a hockey fan so don't really have the urge to "fight" about it BUT! I knew in the first 5 mins that we were not winning that game. The Pats wanted it, the Pats played for it, the Pats got it as they earned it.

    Next year will be different cuz we are staging a comeback but I'll tell ya what...the Pats are winning the Super Bowl this year so an early Congrats!

    (how's that for nice and good sportsmanship?!?! I have my claws bound so I can't use them http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif )

Tom Brady fan here (in case you all out there don't follow football at all, he's pretty easy on the eyes, if ya know what I mean...)!! http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/lol.gif http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/lol.gif http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif

    Seriously, though, it has been a very good year for both Pats and Sox fans.... and yes, we will win another Super Bowl! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif

    My play time on the computer is very limited. I very much appreciate all of the knowledge and good humor here. So, this is the only place I post.

When I have a really have aquestion that I need a answer to, I definitely come here. I would like to take this opportunity to invite anyone to check out CH and introduce yourselves!..Especially any foxhunters out there http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif but everyone else is welcome too! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    Ha! I spend way too much time here to lurk elsewhere, too.

    This BB has been very helpful to me. I've gotten lots of great ideas and information from it. I've also been able to share what I know with others. But best of all I have been able to laugh a great deal with kindred spirits.

    I'm sorry you feel like you are stepping off a plank, Happy Times. I haven't had that experience. The vast majority of people posting here are respectful and nice from what I have seen.

    I became a diehard fan of this board after seeing the unbelievable way the posters here have come together to save the lives of horses in need. The show of generosity and concern was (and is) something special.

    Though you'd all better back off on my secret boyfriend, Tom Brady (secret because no one knows he's my boyfriend...including him. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_razz.gif)

    Meeeeee-OWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif But, you know, I would much rather fight with you over Tom than fight, oh, let's say, Tara Reid or Paris Hilton http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...n_rolleyes.gif http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif

    But yes, 17handtb- it is amazing to see the outpouring of support for horses in need that occurs on this board... kudos to everyone that has helped a rescue or CANTER horse!

    I post on this board as well as another one. I use the other one because at this board, all posts have to be horse-related unless we have an off-topic day, but the other one has a section where we can discuss anything and everything. It's so much easier to get to know people when you can discuss other things, as well as horses. I live for off-topic day here! I really love the people over here. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif
