I've been apart of the macrumors family for about a month and a half now, and I am very pleased with what I have seen. The website is awsome: you can do just about anything. see who is online, check user profiles, see the latest rumors, talk to strangers about world politics, make friends, help people with problems ... the possibilities are endless. But I must say the best (or worst however you look at it) thing about macrumors is the addiction I fell. Posting has almost become a game. I want to become a more powerful member in the community. MacRumors is like an emulator for life, a quest of sorts. To get to where you really want to be, you have to jump through hoops and be around a while, and throughout the whole process you attain a great deal of knowledge as well. I guess that's what keeps me comming.
