This is the only "general" one I visit and would be interested in some others as well. I occasionally visit Microsoft or VMware related forums but those are more for specific needs obviously (and usually only go there when a search leads me there).

ASP.NET, codeproject.com, and a number of invitation-only CIO/CTO/CEO sites.

As weird as it sounds, the sysadmin subreddit on reddit is actually useful (unlike most of the rest of reddit).

No, but with the latest NAC outage it's nice to have a backup plan.

I don't post much here, but yes. At least when comparing to pre- first outage.

I post things things here when I want input from people who are of a higher caliber than what most of the large-scale tech sites have. I am sick to death of the "polite" responders who don't speak English as a first language, quote your entire message, and ask something stupid that was clearly included in the original post...as well as the idiots who post "Let me know if you find out!"

A few of the MS forums I look at are like that. They'll re-post the entire question, provide some generic answer, sometimes not even related to the question, and repeat their post two or three times using the same exact verbiage in their first post.

I can't stand crap like that. I almost always come here for help when the problem is bigger or just turn to my other admins when it is something small.
