    I use Reddit a LOT to trade on the sub r/hardwareswap. Nothing but good experiences.

    The problem is that they don't provide news updates at the pace that [H] used too. You could go days without any sort of update to the site at all.

    Didn’t see this on the list, and if I missed it sorry-

    Anandtech.com has some pretty good tech articles and reviews.

    I was going to say the same, though I think they are mostly self generated articles. That said, a lot of H news was not necessarily tech (e.g. most articles referencing TV shows or Movies were not tech related).
    I think it'd be useful if tech news posts ended up on the front, mostly because it's hard to tell which are new articles and which are ones I already saw, but have new comments.

    This is the first place I went to for news. Dont think Hardocp should stop the news.

    Yea, I agree things are pretty slow sometimes, but I suppose I give him a break as he doesnt have a huge team of staff like Linus or something other larger operation.

    so far, I havent found any near replacement to HARDOCP. I found a few time killers but nothing entertaining or newsworthy.

    Yeah, it is hard to escape the fascist left on the internet. I gave up on my Blues News for the same reason. Sean would accept every left wing conspiracy theory when it came to global warming as if that related to pc gaming, and when I submitted research debunking the manipulated science he used the "not official source" excuse.

    Same here. Nothing comes close to the news that we got to see here. Fudzilla seems like the nearest thing but it's still awful.

    I understand that Kyle's the boss, and whatever was behind the breakup with Steve Lynch and him is really none of our business...

    But Steve did the Hardnews around here for a long time. Hypothermia_._us is the probably the closest thing to Hardnews that you're going to get as essentially it IS what you used to get.

    I can't link it because it comes up "http://I Don't Work Here Any More.com" but www._hypothermia_.us and take out the underscores.

    Like I said, I don't know what happened between them, and it's none of my business.

    overclock.net forum is really great, especially if you want detailed stuff about specific hardware/peripherals. I'd said they are [H]arder than here in that respect.

    That's because Kyle has set up a script to block it. If you don't know what it is, PM me and I'll send it to you.

    This was one of the few sites I visited where things felt balanced in the forums. Sure, they tried to keep politics out of the FPN but it was an uphill battle in many instances. Here, there certainly were leftists, some raging leftists even....but they rarely shouted down or otherwise silenced the right as is far too common elsewhere.
    I'm not really interested in a dry tech site. Instead of looking for another forum, I'll go back to sharing my opinions with/screaming at my monitor. It's not any less productive, just less entertaining.

    Well, it does look like a lot of folks have either left or at least come less often here. :( The FPN section is not as active as it was before and that is disappointing. Oh well, I will still go here and the other sites I have over the years.

    The problem is your frame of reference.

    People that believe in Anthropogenic Climate Change are not the "fascist left". They are simply people following established science.

    It's unfortunate that in the USA, politics and corporate lobbying/marketing have twisted views so much, that many on the political right, view science as some kind of leftist conspiracy.

    All that's needed is a way to toss user posts on the front of [H]. I'm here about as much as ever, but I don't follow the news as much, because it's a pain to see what's a new post and I have no desire to click through what could be a full page of articles (of which only a handful are new).

    In fairness, this isn't a new thing. The right was against evolution (and Pence, as well as some of my conservative friends, still is). They fought getting rid of CFCs.

    And the left has it's science issues too (see the irrational fear of GMOs and likely Roundup too).
