@Searchenginediscussion - - At the time this board was still active netesq was still a dumbozer. You might want to start here.
@Searchengineforums - All the boards at jims world are pretty funny. Their willingness to accept criticism is so admirable. A few good titles:
"Becoming an editor "
"other listings added"
@Wherewithal - "Q looking for A"
Funny how not one of them can simply say that "terrorism" is not a legitimate form of debate.
@Wherewithal - "On Wherewithal's Extra Super Duper Technology (ESDT)" Here we learn that wherewithal isn't a directory it's a trash-ectory where editors are free to sabotage the listing of a competitors site or any site they would personally like to take a shot at. My SecondOpinion is this place "really" sucks.
