    After some minor challenges, I finally got accepted into the Usual Suspects Network! Wow! What a forum! Between being on USN and EDCF I will probably never sleep again! :)

    A lot of friendly "faces" over there too! Would love to here from any of you "crossover" forum members!

    Re: Finally got in to the USN

    I think we are different kind of forums and I mean that in a good way for both than a bad. There are some people that have told me that we should be the same but that kills variety. Forums are different for good reason.

    We do the unusual by having a list of of other forums up.

    Not by invite, but you do need to verify your e-mail addy, and there are certain "public" email providers that are not accepted.

    Re: Finally got in to the USN

    Exactly the situation for me, greenLED!

    Great sense of brotherhood there! Tons of fun, lots to see! But, as Jon put it....VERY different than edcf! (And that's what makes BOTH great places!)

    I am not sure that I should belong to a club that would have someone like me as a member. (W.C.Fields)

    A great quote, but lets give credit to Groucho Marx.

    W.C. fields had dozens of great ones also:

    "A woman drove me to drink and I didn't even have the decency to thank her."

    Re: Finally got in to the USN

    no offense intended to anyone but i joined usn a while back to see what the fuss was about. its fine and some of the chat is interesting but i am not sure i see the point of the hubbub or the restrictive access policy. probably just me

    Re: Finally got in to the USN

    I ve been there for a few months and although I'm more of a reader than writer I see why its so restrictive. There are lots of deals from knifemakers that are only available to USN'ers and the contests and giveaways are very charitable.

    Re: Finally got in to the USN

    The buzz made me curious too, and I signed up (with a legit email address) but was immediately blocked from entry. I sent a question regarding this, and was told:

    "Since you didn't take our signup process seriously, we don't take you seriously. Thank you for supporting USN." I have no idea what that meant. Your first thought will be that I somehow messed up the application, but I don't think so, it was straight forward and nothing was confusing at all. I took it with all the seriousness it deserved.

    I suspect the issue is, that there is one entry field that says something like, "In order to trade on the USN trading forum, supply your real name." I entered: "I do not wish to trade."

    So, with the cryptic, smarta$$ response from USN, I decided not to pursue it. I'm a PROUD NON-MEMBER of the USN treehouse-club, and plan to stay that way.
