Looking to expand my reading of various forums. What do you visit?

I'm on RTG and Cycle Chat. Don't frequent any others.
Skyscraper City is always decent. Some posters on here post there too

I'm not on there, but often look at it when I'm feeling down and need cheering up.
Some of the comments on there make my day at times.

i'm also on RTG.  Dont post very often. Also try to avoid the Threads about NUFC on there cause it either makes me chuckle till i do a little wee or makes me made so i feel like breaking something.  I keep to the general discussion threads. Politics especially is discussed on there with wide spectrum of view.

Used to go on a Darts forum called DOUBLE FINISH but searching for it looks like it no longer exists
A change I've noticed on this forum is that we can no longer access it without logging on. While there are advantages in preventing lurkers, it could likewise discourage new members from joining and contributing.

Hadn't realised that; I always just log on.

But if I hadn't been able to read all the posts then I wouldn't have known what kind of forum I was planning on joining - I was a long-time lurker, and had already got to know which of the contributors here made most sense, and the kind of material that would be available.
Mumsnet Big Grin. (you think the froth on here gets bad)

Often lurk on reddit and often regret de-lurking. They're a combative bunch.

I assumed the Darts you were on about were of the Dennis or Super Pointer variety.
After re-reading, I'm guessing you were on about the Jim Bowen and Sid Waddell variety of darts.

There should really be a forum dedicated to Sid Waddell-isms somewhere. I think he co-wrote Jossie's Giants too but I could be wrong on that.

He was certainly involved in it.
