... That's all I have to say about HBT other than the forum is chock full of one-year-wonder home brewers who are absolutely certain that they are master brewers. This forum is smaller. However, on average, the level of experience each forum member possesses is much higher, and so is the maturity level. There are many amateur brewers on this site that have been through many home brewing fads.
