I really don't care either way, but it will be a more active forum if it wasn't categorized into local areas...although eskimo and steel bring up a good point. There is something about it being categorized that I like.
I like the local forums. I think why people like the local forums better is because that is either where they grew up or grew up surfing it that area and they have a sense of pride. Well that is what I feel atleast.
