I don't remember anyone 'trashing' the forum...what did I miss? Sure, SMP posted a few marginal things, but I sure as hell don't remember a group of posters 'trashing' the forum
By "trashing" I mean, posting offensive material, attacking other posters, etc...like the place was a free-for-all.
The fact remains that this site, while occasionally informative and insightful about hockey, isn't fun any longer. You used to be able to get good hockey info plus a bunch of laughs...this fact seems to be lost on you.
I don't think anything is lost on me.
The problem is, that group's definition of "fun" was: abusing other posters, hijacking threads, and posting inappropriate/offensive material.
That's not what this site, or the series of sites leading up to this site (postnet, stltoday, the real est 1 9 6 7) was all about and that's not what made those site's great. It was a lot of people carrying on interesting discussions, not childish & idiotic toilet humor that seemed to get worse each week.
The other place, while much higher on the fun spectrum, lacks a lot of the informative hockey talk.
Again...we disagree on the definition of "fun". But to each his own.
Having both in one place was nice, but good things aren't meant to last I guess.
Like I said before, if we had continued at the pace we were on a few years ago, this place wouldn't exist today. That's a fact.
LGB has made a nice recovery from a time when I was getting ready to shut the whole damn thing down because I didn't want to deal with the asinine BS anymore.
