You are soooo immature and terrible!
I go to FSU, because truly, once I got in touch with my inner b*tch, it kinda fit in there! I don't do the 'skater specific' ones so much except Griazev's site, and rare check ins on one of the Yagudin ones, more to keep up to date on show dates and news than anything else.
and... World Peace!
oh goodness so many. I don't post or read regularly save for here, but I am a regular member of quite a few
I've been spending a big amount of my time on Spielbergfilms.com's forums
I like to check out different skating forums. I LOVE FSU, its quite amusing. Some of the skater-specific ones kinda suck because the posters get overly defensive.
Gotta Have Music
I check out FSU, but don't post there. It upsets me that there are some posters there who aren't very kind to fans of particular skaters and make some really harsh comments about them & the skaters they admire.
I spend lots of time at the SOI board and a few skater specific boards.
HGTV. An entire category just for color. Yes, threads can go on forever about a particular shade of beige, LOL. After 1000 views a thread is retired.
I know what you mean. I made a few posts over there and sure enough, before I knew what was happening, I started snarking along with everyone else, LOL.

I actually started out on the Boards at US figure skating and ISU but I haven't been to either in a while. Then I found out about FSU and from there I found Goldenskate. I now read on FSU but I post more here. I spend much of my time at Chief Delphi (for FIRST Robotics). And that's about it.
Boy, does that sound familiar! I post at FSU for the same reason. Started hanging there for pbp during events and sorta stuck around to play.

Posted on everything from TLC to basketball sucks, Poor car drivers to cops are morons. And in every place I have been and said just one thing or nothing, it all has one similarity, people are whinny and like to attack to scape having any blame them selves. "If I talk about everyone else's flaws, tham maybe people wont see mine." Just idiots are the one who think they don't make a mistake once and a while, just live fully, not trying to hide by blaming others. They all have a number who do it, and that number is generally greater than the ones who don't.
I just hope people will lighten up! At least a little, whether it is talk can be cheep if you look overall. You have to read between the lines to see the lines. Grip it, and move on.
This one -= GS - acutely has the least amount of this that I have seen. And your thread is not stupid, thinking that it is..........
BTW, isn't this post-dragging???? this is a question.

And a good question it is. This thread is fine, but we have never really addressed the question of what constitutes "bad" board-dragging. However, here are some examples that are pretty clear-cut.

"Hey a******, you just said over on Sashafans that Michelle bites. You better take that back. Sasha can't tie Michelle's boot laces!"
3. Plagerism, in the sense of copying someone else's post on another board and claiming it for your own, without attribution.
It is especially bad to copy first-hand competition results (give a link instead). Boards often pay their corrspondents for this type of reporting. Along with insightful interviews, timely original articles and up-to-date links, that is one way that boards compete with each other for membership. (Don't forget to check out the GS main page from time to time, LOL.
~ Figure Skating Is My Passion ~
Because of a horrible ordeal with my tooth and resulting root canal which I am still suffering through - 3 months later, I have been visiting a forum which caters to folks with dental problems and fears. I still have to deal with the pain everyday and night, but it helps to talk to others in the same boat. Also I never realized that a root canal could be unsuccessful. This is the worst root canal procedure I have ever endured. It is getting better, but still nags at me off and on.
I did register on another figure skating forum a long time ago, but have not visited it in the last couple of years. Golden skate is the only forum I have stuck with on a regular basis. I keep thinking I will quit, but a topic will pop into my head and well here I am again......
