    Quality over quantity any day.
    The irony that great analogies are used over here is so amazing.


    HAHAHAHAHAH the guy that got his knickers in a bunch wouldn't respond to my analogies.

    I don't think the tumbleweeds statement is fair or accurate. Heres the thing, there HAS to be another place besides blowout. There just HAS to be. If thats what this site exists to be then so be it.

    It will always be here as long as there are sports cards, I promise you that.

    We used to have a lot of good guys. A lot of those good guys are pretty much just on blow out these days.

    I wish more people preferred quality.

    Don't get me wrong I've dealt with some good people over there but in general I come here to learn and there to laugh. Have you looked at the member feedback section? Comedy gold.
    This line really nailed it. I never realized it until you put it into words, but I do the exact same thing.

    The Imac drama over there is pretty entertaining to me.

    I read four boards, obviously here, bo, bmb and net54.

    I occasionally post on bmb and don't post on the others.

    My thoughts on the others follows....

    Blow out is full of drama and posters who love...LOVE... to rag on others. Lots of smart asses. That stuff bothers me.

    And I don't really mind silly pics or gifs (I'm a little guilty of that here) but it's excessive there.

    Bmb is a super fast glance and onto the news section. Very very slow on posts.

    Net54 I'll check out maybe like two or three times a week, extremely little action on modern.

    Fcb and bo I'll read several times a day, more often than not, many times a day.

    Honestly, I wish I had more to say. Usually, I come on here, read what others say, realize I don't have anything to bring to the table, and go to bed.

    I will say this...I just fell in love with you all over again, cgilmo, when I read your 31st post on Blowout.

    If you (or anyone) print up some FCB t-shirts with a tumbleweed logo, I'm buying, regardless of price!

    Being banned....



    over there doesn't bother me.


    What grinds the gears a little is how breaker boy couldn't even contact me before swinging his hammer.

    I don't post too much, but I like to jump to all the sites that BBC noted above. This site still has the best people, with the most fluid conversations, of the bunch. This and sportscollectors are pretty much my go-to sites.

    The only thing that I wish this site has was more technical talk on industry news or really in the weeds analysis of different sets through proper stories...but I get that kind of content is hard to produce, and not really cheap.

    But its mostly the people. I am pretty hardcore, but I don't normally interact with collectors since I live in Hawaii (and don't meet many). The people here are generally pretty cool, and helpful. Not too much in the way of fedora tipping, which is nice.

    BO lets some of the biggest trolls turn their boards into a ****hole, but suspends those who put the trolls in their place. It's laughable.

    Their football boards unbearable.

    Yeah, that place is a cesspool. I went there a couple of years ago, stayed a week and couldn't stand it, and haven't gone back since.
    It's like the BO mods want the trolls and idiots to rule the message boards because trainwreck threads increase member traffic.

    FCB may have fewer members, but the mods here have integrity and realize that quality is more important than quantity.
