    I just have to say, MacRumors is SO much better than Spymac, which seems to have just turned into a huge flirting/dating pick up scene or something, and is devoid of good mac knowledge, sans the gallery, which is just eye candy anway.

    Do you guys all agree?

    Yup, I like Spymac for the gallery, but MR wins hands down IMO for the forums.

    Not to be rude or anything, but what did you expect? Why would you expect it to have a quality community when it doesn't even have quality rumors (i.e.: iWalk)?

    Seriously, I don't understand why people even go to SpyMac.

    MacRumors is by far the BEST MACRUMORS SITE, PERIOD! It blows everything out of the water, primarily because of the incredible forums, and the reliability of their rumors. The ONLY site that beats MacRumors for reliability is ThinkSecret, which isn't updated enough.

    How can you say this?!?!?

    There is nothing more amusing than reading the homophobic posts under the pics of men (posted by gay men) in the people's section...

    But in all seriousness... The spymac community is truly horrible. I respect the person who owns the site because he was very respectful to the posters here at macrumors who were bashing spymac. He acknowledged how the felt, and did not take that against them. He didn’t take their dislike of the community of his site personally. Being able to admit your own faults is one of the wisest things one can do, IMO. So my best wishes go out to him, even if the community of his site has man bigoted, annoying, and disrespectful people.

    Welcome to MacRumors!
    So, you are glad that you switched!
    I think we should start a new ad campaign - new switch video contest for MacRumors? Interested people?

    I come up with those crazy ideas in the middle of the night... oh man.

    I'll do a video, but I'll probably look like a disheveled deer caught in headlights, with a terrible fashion sense.

    I like looking at peoples setups. but the forums are not moderated or anything, so it is a bunch of 12 year olds bitching at each other swearing all the time, it is rather annoying. for serious things i come here

    MacRumors seriously has an excellent community. I've always found help every time I've asked a question and I've learned quite a bit from just using the forums. It's definitely a good place to be when you need some expert advice, or just some randomness. Not to mention, there is usually a good level of reliability and an assortment of external sources on the main page to get some of the best content from the other sites, such as Think Secret. I also visit Think Secret and Appleinsider on occasion, mostly because Think Secret has a good record and both it and Appleinsider are great about posting lots of screen shots on new builds of OS X and such.

    Are you KIDDING me? Is the SpyMac guy the same as the despicable MacWhispers/MacTable/MacMice guy?!

    Oh, that would be rich.

    Hmm, don't think so, I believe Sun Baked was referring to someone else of which there are many more picures of:

    Can't be JackWhispers, can it...

    Just happens to be some guy named Jack that Jack has plastered all over the MacWhispers/MacTable/MacMice guy's website.

    Of course people easily forget this site...

    www.envestco2.com/macwhispers

    Must be Jack's significant other, also called Jack.

    heh. a lot of the SpyMac people are really rude. Which is why i almost never post there, unless it's pictures in their gallery :)

    MacRumors people are the best!! :D :D
    (and i'm seriously telling the truth. you people are great!)

    I think spymac has a really slick interface. The graphics and layout were done well.
