Outside of bashing the bejesus out of Jets94, did the Yellow board seem more civil?I know that I post alot less analysis and comments now days, and in a way I could make a case that it just hasn't seem worth it to get into detail.I remember hugely insightful conversations with the likes of cracker, ham, MoP, even Jets. I just don't feel the same way as much anymore. Unless it is a dynasty style thread, I find myself not making the same effort I used to.Is this true, or is it as Shick! says, just fond remembrance?Is the bashing now really any less than the pile on Jets94? :rotflmao:This Poll brought to you by the good people at Bueno
See what happens when other mesage boards go premium service?I've been here since Cheatsheets.com. Maybe I do remember the "old days" a bit fondly, but I've noticed something about my habits here:1. I rarely finish reading a thread because they all break down into name calling.2. I don't post as much as I used to, mainly because a lot of the time, someone else has already made my point.3. I find it harder and harder to separate the wheat from the chaff. Pollution by dilution would describe the boards some days.Frankly I blame the Huddle :half-joke: When the Huddle message boards went pay, this Board exploded as those who woud not pay went elsewhere.I too would like to see a return to the days when there were just a few thousand of us registered and the board was mainly VBD geeks, and we actually argued statistics without getting ridiculed. I haven't seen a good discussion of standard deviation yet this year! Frankly though, that isn't going to happen.I personally think Joe made a mistake when he left his highest cost item (the message boards) out of the premium service. It sounds like now, maybe he's beginning to rethink that decision. Personally, I hope he is.Something for you post-padders and flamers to consider.....Edited to add a thought: I wonder how many of the original 1500 or so (old board numbers) are still here, and if they are, how many have stopped posting with the frequency they did in the past.
