Which of these two p2p forums is more lame: UniteTheCows (http://www.unitethecows.com/forums/), or Zeropaid (http://www.zeropaid.com/bbs/)?

This is difficult to choose who is lamer. Basically I weigh the pros and cons of each one. In general I would say Zeropaid has both stronger bad points and stronger good points, so it's still hard to say which is lamer. Here I will try to write how the forums do in different categories.

quality of posts / originality in p2p news
Neither site has originality in its p2p news, but Zeropaid has on average better quality and more thoughtful posts.

heaviness of moderation and freedom to express unpopular views
It appears that both sites are heavily moderated. Zeropaid likes to ban members while UniteTheCows likes to edit posts.

unethical practices
Zeropaid has banner advertisements. They promoted crappy p2p programs such as ES5 and accepted banner advertisements from them. Also Zeropaid has an inflated userbase because they don't delete inactive users.

site owners
-UniteTheCows: unite, named Russ, shut down his forum in May 2003 and had it merged into PcTechTalk. Then he resurrected his board again in July 2003. I don't think the board deserves a second chance for heroic resurrection.
-Zeropaid: dubstylee, named Chris Hedgecock, was Executive Vice President of a DRM company called EmpireDRM / Clearkey Solutions. With his background I suspect he and Zeropaid may be one of the undisclosed members of the DCIA.

I just cast my vote for Zeropaid as the most lame of the two.

It has been awhile, and even longer for that Unite the cows. I thought it much lamer than zp, but I think they are both lame.

I was thinking about this some more and I changed my mind on this. I think UniteTheCows is lamer than Zeropaid. They delete and edit too many threads and posts there.

Why must everything have to be about you? The fact is that unite the cows was as lame as lame could be.

unite the cows is lamer and has always been as such.

people are used to taking sides
one over the other is possible but one and not the other when it is clear they are both lame????????????????

good - evil
how about just varying shads of bad is not freedom
