Normal. I infact read MD dutifully almost everyday. But the no of posts I do is rather very less. Anyone else like that?

I did the opposite. I used to post a lot in the Sun java forums (or is it fora?), especially the Water Cooler, which was their (unmoderated) version of MD. While it wasn't as good as MD, it was good fun. Sun eventually got fed up with it though, and when they removed WC the Sun forums went down the pan a bit. I then started 2001 An Internet Odyssey by looking for a new forum to post in - one full of intelligent people to discus things with, both java and non-java in topic.

I looked for ages, but all the forums I looked at were full of people called "MAx2001" and "SupR bAb" swearing at each other. When I eventually stumbled across JavaRanch it was a bit like an oasis of intelligence and cordiality in a desert of aggressive rubbish. Its still the only forum I've found where people are unfailingly polite to each other and have make consistent level of interesting intelligent posts.
