I use to frequent a Nissan and Honda forum but there are a bunch of kids who think they know everything and would rather clown you instead of leading you on the right track.


    I know what you mean there.

    Well it's great how it's lasted. So many forums I've loathed having to put on my Nomex underwear ready to get back to the flame war. Takes a lot of the enjoyment out of it.

    In some ways I think it has a lot to do with the subject matter. We're here talking about flashlights. To most, a rather dull subject, but certainly not a controversial one. You either love them (as we do) or you ignore them. Really , who wants to fight over flashlights? Anyone here ever been to a quilting forum? I have to believe they're kind of peaceful as well?

    Sometimes the flaming can be quite entertaining to watch. But really, who wants to fight over flashlights??

    Some (many?) find it stimulating for their little brains. i like the grammar nazis (don"t see much,if any on this forum) as they sit on their little perches shout-in down at any that dare misplace a coma. It makes them feel superior.

    You know, "troll" is actually a fishing analogy, unrelated to those monsters which live under bridges or underground.

    The word has a richness to it though, I like trolling for trolls sometimes myself... Or to troll the trolls of trolling trolls. Which is somewhere between kite fighting and poaching from a long line fisherman.
    Seriously though, if you want to dust off the Nomex and say your piece, there is a place for that on the main page.

    While discussions/opinipns can get quite heated here. I think for the most part, members are really just trying to help others when trying to decide what light they "need" to buy.

    Those Vatican Assassin Warlocks who have tiger blood flowing through their veins and who hate trolls must have taken care of 'em all.

    Yes, it the heavy moderation. They breakup anything that seems like it is heading down the wrong road. GOOD!

    FYI: A post has been removed due to derogatory comments regarding another specified board.

    I admit that some other boards may do so. However, unless there appears exceptional reason to relax our efforts against such, we don't attack or denigrate alternate or competing boards.

    Speaking of our good points is favored over calling attention to others' bad points.

    You guys have obviously never read the threads started by incan freaks bashing LED technology in the fixed lighting forum.

    Or the inverse, go into the automotive forum and try to discuss any mobile lighting technology not invented by Europeans.

    That will be OK, just as long as you don't mention self-defense, put anything from DX or KD into it, or use alkalines
