DirtYStylEYeah we all know that 4chan took over this site and the bans really started hitting hard. I stopped visiting this website for a few years because each time I opened a thread it was a 50/50 that I would want to gouge my eyes out with a rusty spoon due to all the cancerous "banter". OP seems to think that having no moderation would be a good thing. I have to strongly disagree because I quit for several years due to the lack of moderation and obscene troll threads. I have never been an overly active user and I always enjoyed reading threads on this site, I didn't come here to read posts by trolls. It was a cool underground scene with a supportive community that would take most issues seriously. Unless the OP didn't use the search bar.
So, you "quit" a forum that you weren't very active on to begin with?
There have always been good threads and stupid threads. I think the only things that really changed were more members, and people getting older.(younger people coming in)
Even in the most insane times of NSG, there were still plenty of people giving helpful responses and good threads. More threads doesn't means it's all horrible. You can pick and choose what you read. If a thread looks shitty, hit the back button.
Now that it's super quiet here is that a cool and underground enough scene?
