Subject: Another Poster Gone

I haven't posted for a while for a reason. I was willing to tolerate FS and BW but the latest crop of morons is too much. At least FS and BW trolled effectively, that is they stimulated people with brains to refute them. I assume a business decision has been made to tolerate these guys as their page views are as valuable as anyone's. Maybe it's a cost-benefit analysis where the cost of moderation is judged not to be worth it. This was one of the few boards that was not: 1. A Chinese fanboy board full of teenage internet addicts 2. An Russian fanboy/America hater board 3. A European fanboy/America hater board 4. A board where you're knee deep in the excrement that pours out of the ears of the teenage morons that post there. Any of the above 4 ruin a board and SP is now #4. Guys with brains get banned/timeout while morons post away thread after thread of trash that finally overwhelm the board. I hope to meet Phaid, Herald, Rufus, DA, and anyone else with two gray cells to rub together somewhere else. I learned a lot from all of you.

No, seriously, it's like some of you guys are on a one or two week delay, or something.  I think it's clear that SYSOPS has finally taken out the trash.  Now even FS hasn't posted in several days, but I'm not so sure if he's been booted or is just taking a break.  The only big question that remains in my mind is how quickly will SYSOPS react to any appearance of a new troll.
