    Is it just me or has this board really turned into an absolute cesspool?

    I've gone just to a few threads and it's about 10% meaningful debate and 90% bullshit, trolling, name calling, ad hominems ...

    I haven't been here actively in a while, but I remember this place being much more civil and way more enjoyable.

    Is it because of all the new members?

    What happened?

    Pregnancy sometimes clouds your judgement.

    Yes, this place is an absolute cesspool...but it hasn't changed.

    You can talk with yourself in some threads, this way you ensure, that you have a meaningful debate.

    I really feel like it has taken a turn for the worse. Maybe it's just the topics I chose to respond to ... and it might be because I spent a lot of time at a board where discussion is actually moderated and has a set of rules that have to be followed.

    This is a little more free-form.

    There is no political discussion here...just partisan bitching and counter-bitching.

    Then there are those of us that just like to have fun.

    he got married and vanished.

    His report on his proposal was one of the best things ever.

    It has been taken over by the echo chamber. A group of not too bright trolls who hate Obama, Democrats and are threatened by ideas which conflict with RW dogma.

    What happened? You took some time off. Time away from the boards tends to give you a different perspective when you come back.
