@Clydey. Constructive criticism is one thing - pure insults are another. You think the forum was more lively "when those "trolls" were around." It's always more fun when you are with like-minded people. Possibly others didn't like it and disappeared.
You still don't seem to get it. It's not about being constructive. It's entirely emotional. People are venting.
Actually, I've been here since around 2008 and almost none of the old crowd are around. They didn't take off because of us, the people they interacted with for years.
Even Mark barely makes an appearance. Not that I much care for him, in all honesty.
