There obviously is a need for some sort of forum where serious JW issues can be discussed and debated, where 'breaking news' can be announced and debated and where active and inactive or ex JWs can discuss topics related to the movement.
The 'fluff' posts are fine as they reflect the diversity in the exJW culture, as well as the desire and intent of most people to move beyond JW issues.
Unfortunately the combining of these two elements in the manner that presently exists has become frustrating and confusing and sometimes almost insulting to those who post something serious amid the 'fluff'.
I think if careful decisions are not made soon, this board will be reduced to the exJW equivelent of Witnesses Online, or the unfortunate sister-board to a more intellectually challenging and serious discussion board that will materialize out of necessity.
