Some aspects have been over-moderated like thread drift which was never a big problem to me for many years but for some reason became a pet project for the mods the last couple of years...and also the suspensions a few years ago, which drove off many users.  And some are under-moderated, like trolling.

Thread Drift is something that the moderators have been given as a directive to keep the discussion in the lanes.  I don't see what is such a big deal about staying on topic, or opening a new thread if required frankly. 

Trolling is a hilarious topic because 1/2 the people want you to ban one set of people and the other 1/2 want you to ban the other set.

Greg and Charles are arrogant fools who drove that site into the ground.  They don't give a crap about the opinions of the posters, even though they sometimes give lip service & "polls".   

The site seems to still be quite active so I don't buy that argument.  They do care about the posters.


That place was run like a totalitarian dictatorship, this place is run more like a democracy.  Smallc actually gives a rat without an ego & a puffed out chest getting in the way.

The personal attributes of the moderators are what they are.  Moderators you LIKE aren't going to be necessarily more successful than ones you don't, though.
