It's dark in the closet... *evil smile* ...you can play with your flashlights all you want, and no one will complain because you are alllll alone...or...are you?? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGHHHH!I've only used one forum in my life prior to CPF, and it was automotive. Forums aren't a big thing for me.
I'm only aware of 2 other flashlight forums. I've checked them both over time, and would label one as 'juvenile', and the other as 'adolescent'. I posted a couple of times on the latter, and was attacked each time by adolescent idiots.
Besides: BLF=CLF (practically exclusively). They should just change the name and be done with it. I checked recently and that is still absolutely true. There are practically zero flashlights discussed there that I have any interest in. Even if it was 'civilized', I'd have no interest.
Most importantly, CPF includes discussion of ALL types of flashlights, and is (relatively) civilized (well, most users anyway). That differentiates it completely.
If / when CPF shuts down, I'll happily go back to being a closet flashaholic.
