That site was started by a guy who was banned from here for being an ass.

It's a half-assed attempt to be what this site is but comes up embarrassingly short.

I find it just about identical to this site but with half the traffic which could be a good or bad thing depending on your point of view.

Yeah I actually thought this was about me. Thought the cat was out of the bag or something. Jeez Louise. At least it has nothing to do with me. Nice James.

Just went over there, quite a lot of new postings. Same type of info as here. We sound smarter though. Seems like we have much better conversations. And we have the real NYShooter.

I must have searched wrong then, the posts I saw were not any newer than Feb 2012. But I still like this one. This is my main site. I think it's great.

95% of the members there are from here... some just use different names.

I'm not even sure I should leave this thread up, as speaking that forums name is a "banned feature" here ..heh
Really, it is. The name of that site is in the profanity filter here, as the owners of this site don't wish to give them any free advertising.

Seriously though, most of their common posters are people who have gotten themselves banned from here. Whenever we have what I would consider to be a "major" ban, as in a perm ban on someone who has been given many warnings and short term bans but finally breaks the camel's back by doing something too screwed up to forgive.. anyway, you can almost always find that person making an intro post over there with completely ridiculous lies about why they were banned from here and what horrible treatment they received here from the staff. Then the rest of them pat the guy on the back with comments about how they "know how we are" over here. It's a known joke for us.

I don't know what the original problem was between the owner of that forum and the owner here. I go back enough to remember him on this site, but it was well before my time as a mod. No idea what it was about and I don't want to know. It's none of my business.
