The InterNations Quito forum, the only friendly forum for the foreigners in Ecuador.

If you have a general question about Life in Ecuador your best option is to ask it on a InterNations Quito forum. This is the only forum for foreigners in Ecuador where forum members don't viciously attack each other. It doesn't even have to be moderated!!! There are some forums so heavily moderated it doesn't make sense to answer, you cannot provide details: an office address, or website, or phone number, related to the question - it gets deleted.
Usually when InterNations forum members ask question, whoever has the info to contribute - answer it and receive thank you. In other Russian/English speaking forums you can be attacked when you respond. Some of them even have few sections: for "nice responses" and whatever.

Maybe InterNations forum members are civil to each other because they are younger (than your average expat in Cuenca, for example) and more diverse, truly from around the world? 
About one-quarter of the members are Ecuadorians - is that a factor?
Maybe because most of them are occupied: work, business, volunteer, etc?
Might it be - most of them meet every month at Quito's get-together?

Whatever the reason I am happy that there is an InterNations, the oasis of civilization for the foreigners in Ecuador.
