When I first started lurking on this board 3 years ago, I was struck by the brilliance, hilarity, compassion, kindness, and insight, of many of it's posters. It helped me, and my family, tremendously. And for that, I will always be indebted to those posters and to Simon and Ang.
Yes, it was very much like the wild west with its fighting being the thing of which legends are made.
Inspite of all of that fighting, newbies continued to sign up and this board continued to grow.
Simon had to deal with a lot of crap. I will acknowledge that. I have even vigorously defended him when I thought it was warranted. However, I find the deletions, inconsistency, kneejerk and ham-fisted, reactions in the past year or two, to have cost this board greatly.
I suppose I still find value here because I'm obviously still posting here. And, unless the decision is made for me to leave, I'm not sure how long I will stay around.
I have gotten to know only a handful of posters, most of which are not here much, if at all, anymore. I'm not privy to "behind the scenes" nor do I really care about it. If something doesn't seem right, I think that it is reasonable to question it. AND, I think it's reasonable to question the answer if it doesn't make sense.
So, I guess I will see what happens now.
