Some discussion boards are the online equivalent of a television soap opera. Forums have their cast of characters that play the same roles day in and day out. It gets pretty tired, like a soap opera's plot after the first season. (Not that I've watched a full season, but I am extrapolating after watching one or two half episodes.)
Anyways, discussion boards are an interesting place to get feedback and opinion from people. I visit two local forums fairly regularly, WNL and wormtown.org. I am going to use the category, "the soap opera", to summarize findings and discussions that go on on these boards.
Has anyone ever done this on a regular basis? I am unsure how or if I should attribute people's original words if I quote or paraphrase. Any thoughts?
