Is it just me or has this forum( that I so heavily promoted at one time )become like an infomercial?

Far from it Slim.  The last 6th months have been pretty productive.  A few new faces, new issues brought up and resolved.  Been pretty pleasant!

Well, itís like this, we shall see if Marty allows it but those videos can be seen on my site on Facebook. They are pretty long so I donít think they would load here anyway but feel free to come on over to
The TRUTH about Outdoor Wood Boilers. Marty is actually a member and Iím sure has seen them so if he chooses to share them on here then he is more than welcome.

Sorry, not a Facebook goer. Too much drama and nosy folks over there who don't seem to be in touch with reality. Is there a website we could see them on? Or at least give a hint of what makes them important to the outdoor furnace world?

Facebook
Rant on
Yep.  Between the drama queens ("the sky is falling" - again?  That's three times - today!), the petting zoos/pity parties, and all the LAME folk, I just can't stand it.  "waaahh, I had to wait four hours at the hospital to get my finger stitched (because I'm an idiot), don't know why they had to take the three heart attacks first", followed by 47 reply postings about how unfair it is, another 20 talking about all the lazy hospital staff, etc. etc. etc. Sheesh.  The only time it was marginally useful this summer was when we had a marauding bear in the neighborhood, and even then it's only useful if people are already interconnected.

As for the LAMEs, they never change. "Look At ME, how wonderful I am" ad nauseam.  I really don't care about the 25 pictures of you biking to work this morning.  To me, it's just "Look at me, how lonely I am, I have to try and elicit votes on a Facebook page to build up my ego".  One friend in particular never fails to ask us when we see him why we don't reply to his postings.  He's been doing this for five years.  DOH!  Per my mother, if you don't have anything nice to say...
rant off.

I'll stay here, thanks.  Kudos to the moderators.

Facebook does have its uses. I have family spread from the Carolinas clear to the coast of California. The wife has family in the UK. Pretty easy to keep up with one another. Another use is before Christmas we have a closed group for my Dads side to try to set a date that the majority of us can show up to for Christmas dinner.

Other than that pretty much drama queens and BS.

Lots more friendly for posting videos that tell the TRUE story though.

Facebook boiler groups are breaking a thousand members pretty quickly though, even the new ones.

Other online forums have dropped some traffic as well from the infestation of Facebook groups.

Yes they are Marty, The Truth about Outdoor Wood Boilers is currently at almost 500 and moving forward in members every day, 4 years ago you had so many new members per day that you had to weed through them to get the spammers out. It might be time to make some changes to the site. I was contacted a few months ago about buying the site and at the same time asked what they could do to regain my trust and participation, number one on the list is that I donít want to hear that you have more important things to do than discuss issues that I raise like you need to clip your toenails and pick your belly button lint!
