    Where people can post their little threads about how they just bought a MacBook or whatever and receive congratulations or whatever it is they are after.

    Maybe a Switcher subforum. Set up some server-side script which automatically moves threads there which contain enough trigger words and phrases like "WOW IT'S SO MUCH BETTER" and "WHY WAS I USING WINDOWS" and "ARGH THERE IS NO DECENT CAD SOFTWARE".

    There used to be a switcher's forum; three pages of which still exist. For all I know, they may be the only pages that ever existed. However, doing away with the idea was a good one, I think, although I'm having trouble putting my finger on exactly why... :D

    I think the better question is: Would the switchers actually post in it? On other forums that have a switchers section they just post in Anything Goes anyway.

    There is some good CAD software out there, just not as much junk CAD as windows. I bought myself a copy of CSI-Concepts Unlimited (Edu version). It's the CAM section of software that no soluitions exist.

    Meh. Get one of the moderators to move all the threads to the subforum. Then I can ignore that forum.

    Don't get me wrong - I'm terribly excited for every new owner of a 20" iMac or a white MacBook. Just...not so much, any more.

    ArchiCAD and VectorWorks would beg to differ.

    I think a bunch of people would join you in ignoring that entire subforum.

    Right now we stumble across the threads and beat the newbies, but if it is easier to ignore them...

    :p
