Just out of casual interest to see how much cross-over there is for our readers.

Phoronix and GamingOnLinux are pretty much a staple for me.

Phoronix for regular kernel, linux world news. Yes!

I visit GOL all the time. I visit Phoronix infrequently. As such I don't feel either Poll choice fits me.
I read their articles but stay away from their forums. I find those to be more petty bickering than I want to deal with more often than not.

I was so appalled by "that other site" at one stage that I quit it entirely. Just the misinformation on posts alone, nevermind the forums. No idea if the situation has improved there, and no intention of wasting time trying to find out.

The above sentences are a rant taken at face value, but are important background information on why I hang around GOL instead. Better quality here, in my opinion. If GOL was c't Magazin, then that other site is Women's Day.

...for what my opinion is worth.

I check Phoronix and GOL daily. On my phone they're the two sites I've pinned to my new tab page.

Not much anymore, the articles were ok, even if some had a "I'm doing this for the article count" feeling, but the comments and users there... Not really a great place to be.
Not so much anymore as well. I don't find the articles all that interesting anymore and the forums are unbearable.

There needs to be a 'sometimes' option :-)

Nope, Yellow Journalism should have died with Hearst. Even Hearst would have wanted it that way in the end.
