    I love rangefinderforum.com, although I do find it a bit gear-driven.

    I did this trick. I can't actually get into a sub-forum or a thread, though...

    RFF is probably a bit too heavy on the gear (4 Leica M subforums? Separate subforums for each mirrorless digital camera system?). There's also quite a bit of censorship (don't dare mention Occupy Wall Street, as the thread is quickly killed). I also think some of the mods there just like to post meaningless questions at least once a day just to drive traffic.

    I found a website a couple of years ago called photopoo.com, which takes a swing at RFF. As a long-time member of RFF, I must say quite a bit of it is right on the money. .

    Hopefully they're installing a pointless-wank filter.
    That would be fantastic, hehe.

    I have had no problems accessing or browsing the site. My issues all stem from attempting to register.

    RFF is consistently in the top results whenever I google some film question I have (usually "time for x film in y developer pushed z stops"). Since they came up so much in my searches (and since I have two rangefinders) - I figured I'd go ahead and join. That is, apparently, easier said than done...

    Really about the Occupy thing?
    When I was able to view a few weeks back I sae an entire thread of "protest/civil disobebience realated photos and it was quite long.

    Maybe Newt bought the site just recently and everyone is off taking a bath...

    I don't know abut the Occupy topic specifically -- I was agreeing with the comment about censorship which is rampant over there.

    Thanks for saying that Jim. You're not the only one who feels that way.

    They've cut a number of threads, and hacked up those that remained quite brutally. The mods even stated anyone starting a new thread would be instantly banhammered.
