    I agree wholeheartedly ws, complete novices come onto the forum and soon after get hooked on the bean and the quest for the perfect cup. I have learnt so much and I am still doing so from CS and all of the caffeine lovers and obsessives who make this amazing forum what it is.

    Re: What i love about coffeesnobs.com.au

    D. All of the above...is the correct answer. Came here originally as a result of doing some research on a machine i had accepted already (rather than the other way round), then felt quite self conscious about raising the fact that I now owned a Krups given the posts I saw regarding this machine.

    Was quite thankful and surprised when I wasnt bagged over it, and received nothing but helpful advice and suggestions, and one kind offering by AM to actually come over and have a squizz at the thing. Have met a few snobs since, and the be honest theres no one I havent met who I wouldnt be happy to share a cell with (purely platonically, of course) ;D

    I like teh fact that we can appreciate the views of others and laugh at our selves..

    As per ringlets-dweller and the previous post ( the concept of personal identity is sometimes referred to as the diachronic problem of personal identity).

    Re: What i love about coffeesnobs.com.au

    I love the people that I meet (either in real life or in this electronic world) and the coffee experience that we share together.

    Its the sharing, caring and genuine community feel of the forums that is both amazing and addictive. CS’rs try to nurture newbies on their journey, not attack them for their perceived lack of knowledge or "strange" ideas as some other corners of the Internet-webby-thingo do. Although I must ask... who let the bloke with the Krups in here?
    ;)

    As administration we often get some flak for our (very few) rules and censorship (eg: ebay link ban, no commercial ads etc) but I have to say that I think the moderators efforts to keep a crowd of 9000 civil is amazing. In fact the more people we have the higher average of good, considerate CSrs we seem to attract and the odd ratbag gets pulled into line by the whole community often before the mods or I have found them.

    So yeah, Ill follow Cksyd and Marrickville Jeff:
    "I love youse all too"

    8-)

    Yes there is that. Ditto to all of the above, you all rock and put other coffee forums to complete shame. I dont go there much anymore but had a sqizz the other night and they were beheading each other.

    Cheers CS


    Chris

    ps: I would of made a list but the thought of Yezza and Michelle fighting over their position on it put me off ;D

    Re: What i love about coffeesnobs.com.au

    Well since it is becoming agroup hug, Ill add my bit.

    Ive participated on several discussion forums even in the days before the net (on a BBS).

    This is by far the best and most helpful group Ive been involved with - especially on a moderated forum. You can learn something new everyday. And there is a lot of fun to be had on and off the forum.

    So thank you ALL [smiley=thumbsup.gif]

    I must admit I was scrolling back through this thread trying to find a post by this mysterious CSer Marrickville Jeff until it twigged.

    Awww, what can I say...

    I beat KK, FlynnOz & Epic76!!!

    ;D ;D ;D

    I love the fact that this forum has taken me from a person who had some sort of an incling of what they wanted to achieve (hence going from a crappy no-name $300 SuperAutomatic from EvilBay to the purchase of a 6910 with a professional size basket and was manual-ish and within my budget) to a person who has a reasonable idea of what they are doing - still not perfect, but undertaking the journey - and can help by imparting what little knowledge they have and not sounding totally stoopid.

    I love the friends Ive made on here and the people Ive met. I love the generousity of the Sponsors with both their knowledge, experience and pockets. I love the way experts and professional Baristiis visit us and also contribute and share stories - I LOVE the Barista Venting thread! :)

    I love the way the Owner of the site gives a damn about whats happening to the growers of our passion and has done something to address it, rather than just paying lip service.

    I love the way that Im moving state in about six months time and know Im going up to a place where I already have an established group of friends, however wont lose touch with the ones I"ve made here. Youll possibly never know how reassuring that is!

    Okay, I better stop now, otherwise Im going to cry... (*sniff*)

    I echo the sentiments:

    I love youse all, too!
