Woah, that's interesting. I think we have a lot of MacRumors eyes on us now.
It's like that either way, this site (formerly PoliticalGroove.com) has been around for a really long time and when it's active it always attracts a lot of guest traffic. My guess is little to none of it is from MR.

Oh, wow! I thought it's only been around for a year now.
I've had both domain names for upwards of 10 years now. PoliticalGroove was once a forum as well but it died off after the 2016 election, it had around 1/2 million posts but I wanted to start fresh again since it was all so old. Then I decided to make TalkedAbout the primary domain now as I wanted to move more open discussion and focus less on politics. So here we are.

What an interesting backstory...

Even more history, the original PoliticalGroove was just a tiny little site and a bunch of people from the official Bill Maher message board became disenfranchised with them (for whatever reasons) and there was a mass exodus to my site and it took off like wildfire after that. Seems almost like de ja vu.

Even a bit further back I started out and built up a guitar site called https://www.guitars101.com/, which I ended up selling off way back when because I was made an offer I couldn't refuse. You've also probably heard me mention my work as a moderator at vBulletin's dev site back in the day as well. So I've been working with message boards since the days of old BBS and IRC.

That's funny. I actually work closely with Discourse nowadays. :)

Maybe you should apply for a job at XenForo. :LOL:

On a slightly unrelated note...
