    is forum spy a custom mod, or is it downloadable from one of the VB mod sites

    Our very own intarwebs technology guru Knox wrote it (the same chap also responsible for the excellent MacRumorsLive.com events coverage). It's a custom jobbie, and very good it is too.

    That is nice, but the flashing up of the posts kinda gets to my eyes after awhile. I like ours better.

    Yes, me too. I think that would drive me nuts after a while.

    Block those forums that don't interest you and it will slow down
    for example, block iPhone and mobile me, and you will only get a post every hour or so :)

    Once you exclude the iPhone forums then Forum Spy starts to crawl. It was even worse on launch day. It's livelier now.

    Yep, when a new forum gets added, you have to go in and exclude it manually or it will be a part of your list by default

    learned that the hard way :)

    its like whack a mole. You knock down one iphone thread and another one slightly different pops up. im in the 30's on blocked threads. it doesnt take much for me to say goodbuy

    40 for me

    I don't have an iPhone, so that cuts it down significantly
    I take out the Macs/iPods/etc I don't have
    Add that to the areas that either don't interest me or I am not qualified to talk about

    Limits the list for me

    But that is one of the most important things about this site, there is something for everyone (and if you don't like it, just ignore it)

    Eat the fish, throw the bones away
