  2. Tevin: "Long story short: I was a longtime member of another forum and got fed up with the prepper snobbery and Dirty Harry wannabes."

    Tex: "Got here the same way I did... I wonder if it was the same place, :p. Anyways, enjoy it here bud because this is as good as it gets. Never met a better community."
  3. ". . . I have to say, you guys are the best. Everyone here is friendly and non-judgemental. You all seem to understand that every prepper has a different circumstance and is working with a different set of resources. You all are truly decent people here, I'm just glad to be a monkey . . ."

  4. ". . . I'm very new here and new to prepping. I started out searching for info on another forum and found that most of the posts there were basically "my opinion is better than your opinion" with a pinch of useless name-calling. It was hard to wade through the vitriol to get to the good posts. I just don't have the time . . ."

  6. ". . . I have appreciated the lack of snarkiness and meanness that is so frequently found elsewhere. You have done a superb job of setting a tone that encourages participation and not worrying about asking any "dumb/ignorant questions." That is really important; how else is a newbie to improve upon the level of prepper knowledge that they have? . . ."

  7. ". . . This seems to be the best place to go. I'm amazed at how well informed the Monkeys are, so here goes... What is the difference between a prefix of DL or CL on a lithium battery? I am preparing to purchase a dozen or so for a red dot scope and need to know if there is a difference and what it might be . . ."

  8. ". . .A forum is about the sharing of ideas. for the betterment of all. to brainstorm an idea, to correct a problem, to enlist aide when needed, or just feedback for something you did or intend to do. It is a community of friends, and neighbors (no matter where you live), it's a late night discussion between two or hundreds, or a private word with a friend, it's a connection between allies, and a united front when needed. In short ... it's Family . . ."
