You can learn how to BS, so it's 100% educational.

Shit. I voted exactly opposite of what I intended.

Do over! Do over!

I don;t know how to tell what's what.

Take out opinions in any posts and you are down to substance. For me informative because in most cases I am looking for specifics i.e. facts and experience. Just don't take opinions to seriously and your OK. Opinions are like assholes, everyone has them, and most are full of shit.

True this...true this...but then again...75% of ARFCOM is GD

Take all the opinions out, that leaves you with 20% left.

Take all the asinine incorrect "facts" posted out, that leaves you with 1% real, honest to goodness actual info.

That's my guess.

... OK, now I'll explain where this query came from. My G/F asked me the question last night. I said "I don't know, ask ARFCOM!"

Believe everything I tell you. The rest of the members are liars.

There is no BS at this board, all truth
Link Posted: 5/19/2005 7:26:41 AM EDT
This site has such a huge number of people in different professions that it is often more accurate than a lot of the news media stories. We've got people in many foriegn countries of Europe, Central & South American, Scandanivian Countries, Australia, UK.

Even at 1% useful information, after 50,000,000,000 posts, there is alot of useful information. I put it around 10%.
Link Posted: 5/19/2005 7:28:17 AM EDT
c'mon, this board is all bs'ing unless you're looking for something specific, then you get all sorts of good info, experiences, links, etc.
Link Posted: 5/19/2005 7:30:51 AM EDT
I'd say it's more of a lot of B.S.-ing than actual B.S. though there's plenty of that to go around. I don't take arfcom too seriously, I just go about having fun and being me. As Winson Wolf can tell you there's little difference between me, here on the net and me out and about in the real world. I am just plain wierd and I really don't care...it's who I am.....except that I don't look like a big moon in real life.....

I would say that 30% is BS. I had a friend ask me this question just recently. You can find info on just about anything here. Medical, legal, gun info, taxes, insurance ect. Lots of good stuff.
Link Posted: 5/19/2005 7:35:51 AM EDT

I figure it is about 50-50.

The trick is knowing what is BS and
what is valuable information.

80/20. Seems to me like half or so of the topics are of the BS variety, zombies or tv shows or "Would you hit it?". Even informative topics on politic, religion (dear God is this true) and other stuff is crammed with BS in various posts.

ETA: A lot of it is entertaining BS, however.
Link Posted: 5/19/2005 8:30:20 AM EDT
I have a different take. Its 40% info and 50% bickering and 10% Bs.
Link Posted: 5/19/2005 8:30:33 AM EDT
60% Info.
20% Religious Bickering
5% Air50ft
5% BS
10% Sarge
