What happened to the Nets forum? GMJ is banned. Pegs is banned. War Poet is banned. Kid Chocolate is banned. (OK, I can kind of see where you're coming from with that one. That kid needs a lobotomy, fast.) Cpaw doesn't post any more. Ghoti barely posts. Dumpy seems confused and lonely, yearning for meaning. Countless others seem to have abandoned the site. Gone are the days when I could count on 5, 6, sometimes 10 intelligent responses to every post. It feels like a ghost town. Now, I don't know the details of what happened. From what I can tell, there was some sort of power struggle - some of the mods put their weight behind a decision, and those that didn't like it were effectively exiled. I don't know if that's the case, but that's the whole point - I don't know, and I'm assuming the worst, because what else am I supposed to think? Here's what I've seen from Denny Crane: And I haven't seen the public discussion. I'm not sure where it is. It's certainly not posted in any obvious, easy to find location belying the (whether you'd like to admit it or not) crisis that's hit the Nets board. And I'd like one, beyond "they broke the rules." I'm just not sure you guys realize how precious a commodity intelligent, engaging posters are. All due respect, but there's nothing that makes S2 all that special of a board. The technology isn't that complicated - you press a button and text shows up. People have been doing it for two decades. The reason I found the site was through the link on NetsDaily, but the reason I stayed was the incredible level of user-generated content on the Nets board. And I'd like to know (1) why we just lost a good portion of that content and (2) why I shouldn't just pick up and follow them to a board that actually values their content. I understand what we've lost as a result of this decision. I don't know what we've gained.
