Question Head-Gasket Direction Question

So, I burnt a valve in my Met, and took the opportunity to have the head rebuilt. I have a new copper head-gasket, and I'm trying to figure out which way it goes in. On one side it's copper, the other, some other dark metal. I'd assume the copper side goes toward the head, but it lines up either way and there's no markings, so I figured I would pose the question here.

I know, it's kind of depressing. You'd think with 100+ members joining a day, we would have a bit more activity. What are they all doing? There's probably some kind of underground CF crime ring going on right under our noses.

I was noticing that too, at any given time there are like a dozen "people" registering. I assumed they where all spam accounts, but I never see them post anything.

If they do post anything spam-ish, they're usually deleted pretty quickly, so you might not notice anything.
