I realize that between work and Cyburbia most people probably don't have a lot of time to frequent other message boards, but if you do which one(s)?

During my down time:
Cyburbia, Skyscraperpage and Skyscaperguy to satisfy my city-geekdom.

Plastic.com if I'm feeling slightly intellectual.
and
Fark.com if I'm not feeling so intellectual.

(Disclaimer- I don't actively participate in these forums I mostly lurk) :)

Well, Cyburbia and one other where I play several sock puppets and an administrator. But this is the one for fun and knowledge.

Oh, I forgot - www.brickboard.com - for Volvo enthusiasts

urbanphoto.org

I post a lot at urbanphoto.org. Tends to be somewhat liberal, a lot of younger pro-urban/anti-suburban guys. Great photography by the site editors.

I lurk at some music sites.

And I lurk a lot/post rarely at portalofevil.com (my politically incorrect/snotty brat forums of choice)

Aside from frequenting the skyscraper boards from time to time, I try to make The Straight Dope a regular part of the day.

I used to be a regular on Usenet, but spambots (both posting and searching for e-mail addresses) took the fun out of it for me.

I lurk around a lot of boards, and post from time to time... Leafs, skyscrapers, urbanphoto, etc. But not with any particular regularity. Oh yeah, and sometimes on Salon.com... intelligent people there, but I don't like the way the threads are set up, it's hard to search and follow conversations. Lastly, I go about once a week to post questions on a board devoted to stepmothers, to try to get insight into various situations surrounding my b.f.'s kids and ex-wife situations.

Basically this is it. I lurk on urbantoronto.ca - though I don't post too much. I'm also on a model railway board too.

Cyburbia or nothing

It's the only virtual crack good enough to get the bturk endorsement.

I post count is highest here at cyburbia, I also visit the straightdope, unaboard, fabulous forums of fathom and the brunching shuttlecocks www.brunchma.com. Message boards only. I keep far away from live chat.

Oh and I used to hang with the class of '80 at classmates.com until they pulled the plug on the free message boards.
