Curiously enough, if you google ribmagazine it says "Did you mean: rob magazine"

If I sign up to RIBlife do you think the administrator would be my friend?

Somehow I don't think that HMS is ever going to be your friend any more John. I would keep a close eye on 'riblife' lest anyone say anything libellous about rib.net. In that instance I believe Messrs DF&M Beckman have expertise in attempting to strongarm innocent forum operators!

Peerless - I'd almost forgotten about that outfit! I may be able to attend Ribex this year, if so I'll be ordering then wearing as fuller Ribnet branding kit as possible.

I am new to RIBnet and not aware of the issues between the 2 sites. Ribnet is great and members have helped me out many times. When I first "googled" ribs, the first site to come up was R.I.B. Continued my search and found this forum, but i ask for forgiveness for signing up on the other site
Thanks for all the help

There's room on the internet for everyone, and I don't think anyone here really has any issues with the RIB International site. They do set themselves up a bit though when they do silly things like claiming to be the first online network for RIB users!

Hugo Montgomery Swan has been a bit heavy handed in the past, not to mention unfriendly from time to time, but we all have bad days don't we?
