    Default Any PCG people out there?

    I'm curious to hear what people think of the PCG forums these days. I get the impression they're becoming less professional and informative, but since I'm just a grumpy old git I thought I'd better ask for second opinions!

    I'm also a bit worried that PCG members come here for advice, which makes me think that they don't want to use the PCG boards for some reason.

    Science isn't about why, it's about why not. You ask: why is so much of our science dangerous? I say: why not marry safe science if you love it so much. In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you in the butt on the way out, because you are fired. - Cave Johnson

    Hmmm... Email the admin people and tell them. I think the threads software can have a bit of a fight with some browsers. At work it may be a cookie issue, of course, if they're blocked by the client's firewalls.

    I was in the PCG, but then one day I realised that IR35 had actually been a good thing in encouraging me to shop around for where to put my tax $.

    I read them but rarely post (as there are more qualified people). Tend not to bother with Press, General and the Lounge though.

    I know the abuse on here yesterday was purile but the lounge is like that daily.

    I'm in the PCG but I must confess to not really using their forums much - yet. It's a good point though - many of the questions I'd expect to be asked there are already covered here... hmm...

    I always found them the opposite. Very pompous and overbearing.

    I've left the PCG anyway, it does nothing for me.

    I only look at the commercial forums and so far I have grossed a few grand in small jobs through there.

    Pedant - that's just me using my terminology. They can be blocked by company security policies, and I regard a firewall as a security measure, not just tin and wires.
