Pressure-Drop

Recommended Posts

Looks like a lot of Anarchists have moved to Pressure-Drop (http://pressure-drop.us). What gives? It doesn't seem like the site offers more than what we get here on SA.

 

 

cheap

 

"A lot" is relative...the forum lists 107 members.

 

and I know for a fact that two of those won't go there again

 

It sucks

Have to see how it develops. It had the feel of the early days around here but is definitely experiencing some growing pains. I wish them luck.

I did notice it scooped a few stories about 24 hours before they made the front page here.

 

what front page?

 

Most of the time the front page doesn't get updated when a story breaks, it usually gets updated at night.

News is generally posted in the forums here minutes after occurring, if you're really on top of everything, you never go to the front page. Haven't been there in years (and I'm not even on top of anything.)

 

Besides, front page stories mostly only are just the ED or Clean's views, not real news.

I signed up and made about 5 posts before it became very apparent that the site wasn't going anywhere fast. Without anything worthy of reading the pogen, photoboy, solo, AG circlejerk became too much for me to handle.

 

 

 

 

What a dickhead, you have NO IDEA of what Sailing Anarchy was like before it was neutered.

 

Why not give someone credit for offering an alternitive to this place?

Make that a pogen, photoboy, solo, AG, AND hobot circlejerk.

 

I know that this place was different a while ago and that the current iteration of Pressure Drop has some similarities to that. Even when taking that account I would rather spend my time here for a number of reasons.

PS I think at one point the ED was telling someone they better dare not pimp some other site on HIS site etc etc etc, so let me assure all readers that they should not go there, it is a complete wank-fest and waste of time, and so forth.

That could be a lot of funny.

Will you be attending as Snaggy?

 

Given how much credit you give me for the alleged pussification of SA, Pressure Drop's fate is pretty much sealed with my recent registration.

 

Any minute now I'm going to go start a couple of threads on crimping coax cable for VHF installations and revive my LPG installation topic.

I have to give credit where credit is due BJ.

And for the record, not you in particular, but rather your support of the requirement of having to register to post. I rather enjoyed anyone, registered or not, being able to jump into the fray spontaneously. I further enjoyed trying to figure out who it was that was flying off the reservation anonymously....added greatly to the shits and giggle factor. I get that you all have this notion that screen names represent real and identifiable people, it's a fallacy of course as readily demonstrated by the proliferation of sockpuppies post the registration requirement. That said however, sockpuppies take on their own personality, or at least try to. Without the registration requirement, you got a host of commentary from across the spectrum without restraint. That made the early days most special. Ah unintended consequences. Not only did registration limit free expression, but it resulted in absurd nonsense under the banner of responsible citizenship making a mockery of the entire concept.....but that's anarchy for ya!

 

You really think so?

I have to tell you, I've been over on that site reading the Forums once in awhile. It's mostly SAer's who get bored here and go over there. It's about as lame as J/Anarchy.

 

Which is the best J-Boat?

I may have to retract my statement...at least this site loads on a slow puter. PD seemed to be offline the last couple times I went there.

 

hey, the Apple II was a cool computer. :lol:
