I don't mind so much the member companies. I haven't crafted in so long, it's nice to know what all the new products are.
What I'm noticing, and maybe it's just me, is that the forums seem to be very slow. Not in technology slow, but it seems that before I stopped scrapbooking several years ago that most days posts and replies were back to back to back. That doesn't seem the case anymore. I feel like such an addict since every 5 minutes I'm picking up whatevers closest that has wi-fi or 3g and a browser to check and see if anyone posted after me... only to be disappointed that they hadn't! Hopefully it's not just me... less than a week back into the hobby and I already feel like I need an AA group for it.
