    I have been here since SFN abruptly shut down. I did not want to belong to two Stern "fan" sites, so just stayed over there. No offense; just laziness on my part.

    Here are some differences in tone I have noticed between the two sites regarding THSS:

    THE SHOW overall -- here I'd say it is about 99% anti-show. If someone posts a positive review of a bit from the show, they may get negative rep points. At SFN, it was more like 60% anti-show. There were some holdouts who still somewhat liked the show.

    ARTIE: Here, everyone seems to like Artie and see him as representative of when the show had some balls, and forgive his 2010 meltdown. Sure, his weight and looks are fair game to make fun of, but it's nothing he hasn't heard before. At SFN, there are a lot of posters who really hated Artie, thought he was a liar and had poor character. They agreed with his ban from THSS.

    ROBIN: People are pretty ambivalent about Robin here. She is sick, after all, and the the human response is to lay off. At SFN, she was ripped to shreds. People seemed to take great joy when photos of her would surface where she looked fat.

    HOWARD: Here, Howard is pretty roundly hated and made fun of. He is seen as some man-child, phony narcissist. Also, the wig thing is huge here. His wife also gets killed here. At SFN, while the tide was turning, there still were people who admired Howard and wanted to be in his shoes; have his wealth and attractive wife.

    Anyway, just stating the above for the record. I don't have a dawg in this fight and, like THSS soon, SFN is never coming back.

    I think we're pretty brutal on Robin here. The memes about her are hilarious.

    People here wouldn't mind having his wealth and having an attractive wife. He can keep those stupid shoes and his "attractive" wife.

    I suspect that many people who claim that they're not listening to the show any longer may be bullshitting. Many people who make that claim may be listening regularly or semi-regularly. However, I am endlessly entertained by this board's craziness...

    I can assure you that I haven't listened since Artie's suicide attempt after it became clear that Howard wasn't going to let him come back.

    Robin has taken a lot of fire here, but she's been pretty low profile lately.

    There's a record? Is it updated regularly? Where does Dawg keep it? Is it vinyl?

    Alrighty then.

    And aside from the more or less no holds barred posting rules applied here I suppose that is an accurate status quo of the 2 sites...

    ...now that I give it some thought. These observations are almost always of interest for historical contrast.

    In a nutshell

    "Here" vs "There" : no heavy-handed censorship, no asshole mods, no snail-paced posting, much more clever, witty, sardonic and funny posters, a stronger, if not infallible, HSS BS radar detector, much hotter babes....and of course, a considerably firmer grasp of reality .

    The Facebook "super fan" group still is about 70 percent pro Howard -- but Facebook is dominated by mid-life women.

    The mods on SFN were little punks. Especially that faggot John Daniels. I've never felt more freedom than on this site. You can stop me from calling Beth a horse face, but you can't take my freedom!!!!

    The hypocrisy at SFN that made my blood boil was that Wiggys kids were off limits. The mere mention of them would get you banned. So here's a pic of sweet Ashley Jade!
