Any Geek forum recommendations?

By Mike-Scott ·
I know, it's probably rude to put this on this forum, but can anyone recommend any other forums where geeks hang out?

It seems like most of the techie forums turn into tech support forums, and let's be honest, when 1 half of the page is adds, it makes it pretty hard to find stuff worth reading.

Thanks in advance.

Firefox and Ad-Block.
What ads?

Well

That's one solution, although I still view it as a failure in the site itself.

Thanks for the reply!

Exactly...

Call me a sell out, but those ads pay the bills and I don't see anything wrong with them. I hate ads, but I understand. The ones I find fault with here on TR are the annoying ones that play video and sound as soon as the page loads. Annoying if you happen to be at work to say the least.

Understood...

I understand that, and that's why I'm not a fan of ad blocking. However, there comes a point where too much is too much, and it's something that each site owner has to balance.

Yup.

It's the sound and moving video that got me to blocking ads. Don't even like those kinds of surprises.
Well, that and the interminable page loads when the ad servers are misbehaving.

etu

Nothing like bringing up a site at work...

...and the "Viva Viagra" melody starts blaring from your PC.

Ad-Block couldn't have been installed fast enough!

Should have been obvious, but I didn't think to check GRC. Thanks a bunch!
