Okay, what I'm going to write is going to amount to heresy here, but it's got to be said.
Someone should prevail on Eyal to restart WatchGeeks (Running Ducking Hiding). The former members (and I was one for a time) are starting to spread out to other watch forums and the BS posts are starting to get under my skin. I'm starting to see a steady diet of "I just bought the new 65mm Gargantuan, and it's a beauty," or "I read about Invicta criticism on some sites and I just don't get it." I realize that many here would just crush their dreams and be done with it, but some sites exercise a bit more gentility.
Now before, most of those firmly in the Invicta camp, or new to that world, were kept in their own watch ghetto. Occasionally some would venture out into the real world, or get banned. Some would get their eyes opened, or they would go back to their own swimming pool and to an unending regurgitation of "smokin' watch, I like that." Real thought was neither encouraged, or permitted, and dissent was dealt with harshly.
I just hate to see other forums become mini WG (WG Lite?). One moderator even suggested a new member go elsewhere if he was unhappy with the criticism of his new uber watch company. I realize that you can't put the genie back in the bottle, but I just had to rant for a moment. Besides the thread title said what you're about to read will shock you.
