With all due respect, Rokkit's post was spot on. You are correct that this is one of the most active forums recently. However, I would hardly call the majority of what is being posted anymore is "news" or is useful. Compared to what the forum was 6 or 8 months ago, the forum is full charlatans, folks who are not willing to perform a simple search function, and way too much off topic text. Unfortunately for everyone, the usefulness of the forum is decreasing every day because the useful information that is here is obscured by all the noise.
Hey, John Murtha just died too. Maybe we should start a thread here about that.
