Kind of sad how not many of these sites actually get along with each other. We know 4Chan hates just about everyone else, but we also have our own vices against other sites (though I don't know which ones).
Ebaumsworld have been stealing content from NG for a long time, at least they used to, I haven't heard anything about them in a long time. There are plenty of similar entertainment portals that take content from larger sites and just syndicate it without permission, and I guess that's where the grudge lies.
As for the other sites mentioned, Soundcloud is really no alternative since the AP is more of a resource for submissions than a showcase for artists (and the biggest resource of it's kind AFAIK), even though it's been transforming to the latter, and the Art section has a completely different style of content than DA, no photos, for one. As for YT, they're about video and NG is about animation. Though I suppose they're all competition in some way. :P
