Dp thinks forums and online chat is for the most part stupid and a waste of time and people should just get out and actually met people. he does find them useful when wanting to know specific information ie I joined a car forum specific to a car we bought that was missing a user manual and also needed troubleshooting help. And I joined a BBQ forum for help with particular recipes. He knows about both of those ones and has even asked me to post particular questions. But a parenting forum.. He finds that sort of thing strange.
