Initially when you join, the forums seem like the most amazing place to be, and you find yourself completely drawn in. You make friends... can't stop reading the threads... there are moments too when you find yourself laughing at jokes even after you've logged off! (I know.. but it happens...)
With time, however, a lot of it gets repetitive, the 'charm' wears off...and you settle down to the occasional post here and there. And that too varies from day to day, and how much time you have on your hands.

Therefore, I suggest that all links here be no-followed.Reasons:Other than normal chit chat one of the main posts include those of content thieves. People don't break up the links so as to prevent them from forming and why should...

I have written 5 articles on infobarrel. Recently, I checked to see how many views I have received on them. Hubpages tells us how many views our hubs get within 24 hours and so on...Does the same go for infobarrel, or are the views I am seeing the total amount?

This question is for the anti-gay folk who spend an enormous amount of energy in various gay groups and forums. Why?Is it because you want to make sure everyone knows you are not gay? What are you SO afraid of if you stop preaching your anti-gay beliefs?GLBT forums are supposed to be for GLBT...
