I do agree with what you said though, both regarding getting to know all these great members, and one of the main reasons threads drift.

There is an old adage that says " If it ain't broken, don't fix it." What exactly would Facebook Fix? By keeping everything on this forum, one only has to look in one location to find information related to Escape trailers, thread drift an all. Only my opinion.

Facebook does tend to get more of the silly banter/conversation off of the forums on the ones that already exist alongside the owners forums. People do seem to get nastier with their comments towards others on the FB groups which is a big reason I don't spend much if any time there. One FB group really tickles me because if you mention another brand or site you get deleted, and accounts are terminated there frequently.

I bet I know EXACTLY the FB page you're talking about! That page also has five administrators. I think someone is available to monitor it 24/7. For heavens sake, don't mention another brand of trailer there!

Like a family you have the older and the younger siblings, learning from each other. You have the smart ones and the not-so-smart ones, the experienced and the ones in diapers, the geeky and the goofy....and the odd one off.....
Happy with this forum as it is!!
Thank you big brothers and sisters for being who you are!!!!
