Why I like pmbug.com / Where it might go...

I think pmbug.com could have a great future!

At present the main thing I like is that pmbug.com is that is about "half way" between the pow-pow-pow lightening pace of Zero Hedge and the most excellent but ponderous fofoa.blogspot.com (disclosure: FOFOA is my Trail Guide, that is, I think there is an excellent chance of Freegold happening: $55,000...).

Where this forum may go is the potential that it could attract a substantial community of people who are experts in various pieces of the PM community at large. There is a LOT to learn about just gold itself!

I like it because it looks like a good place not just to discuss the economy and financial systems, but to hash our practical ideas for surviving them.

I already like it because the subjects covered are of importance - for me at least - and the material & posts (and therefore members) are considered and thoughtful.

It also looks like a great place to point people who are just beginning to notice whats going on around them.

and Im hoping that its possible to keep up, cos turds site is so busy that Im always 4 pages behind the leading edge and any comment I might want to make is already way out of time n place. Not that Ive got much to add to the expertise there.

Do Chen, thanks for bringing me here.

Why am I putting off reading FOFOA's latest work ?
and whats his current take on the Euro demise, cos hes always held the view that it cant fail due to it being underwritten by gold ?

Yes, registrations/day over the last week:

November 05, 2011 - 5
November 06, 2011 - 1
November 07, 2011 - 1
November 08, 2011 - 3

Averaging just over 4 new members per day. I'm really just getting started with promoting the site. I'm very excited about the cozy community that has already developed here. You guys (and gals?) rock.

One of the neat features of this site that is really missing from ZH & Turd's site is this quote feature (see the quote button at the bottom right of every post) that makes it easy to maintain a conversation within a thread even if there are several posts between your reply and the comment you are responding to.

I think you will find that it enables you to maintain conversations over a large span of time (I've got some ongoing threads on other forums that are several years old and still active).

Because it will take you HOURS to read it?

A piece of advice: don't try to read FOFOA if you've started in on your evening drinking, LOL...

Bug, I agree 100%, I have repeatedly asked for people to at least add the name of the person their replies are directed to.
Almost impossible to follow who's talking, commenting to.
I always do, it would be a lot easier Forum to carry on a discourse or topic.

That said this is a more relaxed atmosphere, and they are a Step Above any other media /news outlet I have seen.

Both sites compliment each other.( Vastly different in purposes).

And here, more people are wiling to share, and help if there is a question asked.
