I've rarely used http://forums.rootsmagic.com/ because of login problems but they now appear to be resolved. I realize what a problem SPAM can be to web managers. On my personal pages I control SPAM by simply not allowing comments or accounts without my personal approval. That's probably not an option for a website like this.
Still, I'm with everyone else. FB has so many limitations. I can't <CTR> F to search the page for words, phrases, or uses comments. Forums have the neatest way of organizing subjects whereas FB is chaotic at best. For my personally, using FB as a replacement for a user forum would be like taking all my printed genealogy, tossing it in front of a powerful fan, pickup it up again, then stuffing it into a large container. After doing that, finding my pedigree would not be a simple matter. I've found FB to be a lot like that when searching something specific that I once saw on a genealogy page, or a DNA research page, or a family research group, or -- now let me see, which was it?
