, Matthew said that he knew many people who avoided AP "assiduously". If you are one of those, I'd like to hear why.
Personally I find (good) AP discussions among the most useful things you can use a forum like SG for.
I'm not talking about AP threads that merely summarise what went on in the game's fiction - there are probably thousands and thousands of those on rpg.net fx. The Forge used to have pretty high standards for AP, that's the kind I'm talking about.
