    The only thing I use it for is looking (and finding some deals) in the equipment exchange

    I got banned and don't feel like I'm missing anything but the EE.

    I agree. And their management leaves a lot to be desired. Most of the OR Hometown forum regulars have been banned for not sucking "X dealer of the month's" dick.

    Some good write-ups, how-to's, and pics, very busy equipment exchange - - a great place to visit.

    The good aspects however are overshadowed by the limitless ignorance, mindless ass kissing, and giant egos.

    Have been on there for years. I go on less and less. The Hometown Forum was nice for a while, but delving into it, it's a lot of nut-jobs. The EE is nice, but that's about it. You can probably get the same info here in WMD, without dealing with the drama

    :rofl:

    The whole mentality of trying to one up people on forums by buying stuff is just hilarious to me.
     
  18. I love the nutty ideas people have in the gun cleaning section.

    That site sounds like it has really no benefit. If I'm reading everyone right, it's basically a race to praise the most forum sponsors or get banned? Sounds like a real efficient use of someone's time.
     
  21. Don't forget having to sort through piles of worthless info from people who don't know the difference between their ass and a hole in the ground.

    ignore the hate, there's a fuck ton of good info there. Yes all kinds of retarded shit is there as well. I dont' go there to pass the time arguing with shit heads, I go there to get specific answers, reference threads, or to find out what new hot shit is coming out.

    It's good for the EE and some of the technical shit. It's also nice to browse the industry forums as well. Registration sucks. Like already stated their management is all about the "my way or the highway" attitude. I would say register, but don't pay for shit. And don't ever try using "their" bolt face logo :mamoru:

    It appears all you peeps are the ones I have to beat to a post sales on EE. Amazing how fast shit sells.
