The Morning Star
As a new member and fellow watch geek, I have been enjoying toying around on this site and have found it to be very informative and helpful, which was my prime reason for signing up. During my late night "googling," I have come across other watch forums that are filled with vitriol against people involved with this site. I'm sure many other geeks are aware of this garbage. From personal attacks to bashing the watch purchases others make, the level of hatred over nothing is quite remarkable. It's tantamount to cursing a Ford owner because they cannot afford a Bentley, and then slandering their character for their choice. It's really disgusting. The upside of this unfounded virulence is that it separates Watchgeeks.net into its own positive light. If it were not for ShopNBC and Zeta male grifter, I may have stumbled into the watch world abyss. Above all, I deeply appreciate the positive atmosphere of this site and the moderators deserve a special thanks for creating and maintaining it as such. For this I am grateful and pleased with my brief time on this site. Thanks.

Depending on what site(s) are being discussed, I would have to disagree with you. Some of the stuff that is put out there is really beyond the pale. Trying to get people fired over BS, accusing people of being an alcoholic, and all of the other stuff is more than just being passionate about what you believe. That is obsessive behavior that borders on the pathological. And I say that as being one of the targets of their "passion".
