    Re: this site..

    I'd have to say that the appeal of this site lies in the simple fact that it is the anti-youthink.com. Unlike the powers that be on YT, the mods here don't exclude people for not contributing financially to the site or not having been around for very long. It truly is a free website.

    In case you're unfamiliar with youthink.com, it's a site that has a lot of potential for being enjoyable and addictive (you answer simple two-option polls from other people, and you get to submit a few yourself). It sounds great, but after about two weeks I found out the horrible catch - to really be able to participate on an equal plane with everybody else, you have to be a "key member." You get to make multi-question surveys, and almost any question you ask falls within the criteria of being valid, and even some that don't (i.e. "Do you think people who are perfectly capable of working and have made no efforts to do so deserve support from the government?"). Ironically, the best question that I submitted, "Has you ever heard a piece of music that was so emotionally resonant that it made you cry?" was rejected for being "too one-sided" (meaning that everybody would answer a certain way), whereas the welfare question was allowed (even though 97% of all members answered "no"). That's when I first saw them for the money-grubbers they were. Maybe it was once a true quintessential communal Internet experience and it sold out, maybe it was always like this. But I'm never going back there again - and I'm certainly not going to pay the exorbitant monthly fee when I can come here, a much better site, for free.

    Re: this site..

    Haha I love WOT's quote, it is so true for me too, wish I had come up with it! But anyways, this site has meant a lot to me this past year since I joined last January because people on here truly understand my love for the Vikes and as silly as this may sound, I was starting to feel like no one understood that. I don't even have to explain why I love the Vikes because we all feel the same way! It's like our own little community and I love it, I love you guys, I love PP.O!!!!!!!

    Skol (written skål in norwegian, and sometimes "Skoal" in English) is the Norwegian word for a salute or a toast, as to an admired person or group.
