That WR forum has so many rules, regulations and unhelpful people.

It's like the Registry of Motor Vehicles or the Post Office... :roll:

Priceless!!
http://forum.wordreference.com/forumdisplay.php?f=4 -- the mods are a bit over-the-top; deleting threads, telling you to search the forum (even if you did and didn't find what you were looking for)
In the "There's no need to be afraid" thread of the Vocabolario section, Ciccio said that after he had asked a similar question he had been told to go to a professional translator. Incredible...

It will not last the night
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends

In all fairness to WR they are usually very prompt in replying to questions, and what I like especially about that site is they are not shy about correcting errors. Although I like this site a lot, I do wish there was more of that here. :wink:

I don't think people are shy here about correcting errors.

I've noticed that people don't waste time in pointing out something that needs improvement. I just think that it is the approach that makes all the difference.

Personally, I think that being different from other websites is not necessarily a fault.

If all sites were equal, how could I decide which one is the most enjoyable?

Just about anytime of the day there are hundreds of people on WR. When more people subscribe here, maybe responses will come faster.

But this site is still the cooooolest :P
