+ Userbase is much more relaxed and/or open for discussion than most of the other webring sites, other than heated topics you will rarely see strong animosity between posters although you might see it at times.
- Userbase is actually quite small, in many boards it is easy to identify who's who and it is normal for two anons to meet again in other boards. While this is wholesome it actually is dangerous in the long run.
+ BOs and mods rarely meddle with the users and when something happens the admins and globals are quick to explain their ground, from what i've seen they are either benevolent enough to not do anything or they caution you with lots of previous time.
- Some controversy has happened over posts being deleted for no reason, admins/globals have seen glitches or users deleting their own posts for some reason and then whining but the major problem has been the slow pace of the site which makes for explanations coming late sometimes.
+ Interesting boards with founding users (or the BOs themselves) being knowledgeable and posting the good stuff that make up for cool threads.
- These boards are mostly archives because users usually don't engage often either out of nothing they think is worthy for contribution or they act mostly as lurkers.
+ Lack of much NSFW content that makes many discussions much more focused, and makes many more comfortable to not beat their meat.
- The nature of this clean image sometimes made some users and BOs try to enforce it by rules themselves, which left many at odds.
For me the pros beat the cons so far but not by a long shot, they are just exotic/good enough compared to the rest.
