If you spread your efforts over too many choices, you'll ensure than none of 
them are very good.  Forums are a nice place to go to ask questions, but 
otherwise there's no reason to visit them.  If there's a paid support staff 
providing answers they sort-of make sense but otherwise who is going to go 
bouncing around to a forum for every interest just in case there might be an 
interesting question there?
