Have we become a victim of our (or goatboy's) success? I used to read every post every day on here. Now I can't read one post without all the rest being on the second page by the time I'm done. There is no way to get to nearly it all now. I used to have about seven or eight pages to catch up on by the time I got home. Now it's almost fifteen. It's all moving so fast for my slow old brain.

Anyone else been feeling this way?

Is it just me?

Is this a dupe of a thread I missed?

I agree, I think this board should close itself to all new members, let it die down a little.(OOPS forgot my smiley!)

That is silly. More members are good. We can do without some, but hell, a little controversy is fun.

You cant read everything. Let it go!

The more, the merrier. You just have to scroll down more pages that's all.

I think the more people on here the better. I enjoy people sharing knowledge, the more the merrier.

No. Maybe too many in the day. I wish they'd post at night, so I have something to do. I read and type fast. At 0300, its dead here. A post every few minutes, if Taxman or Brasspile aren't around.

We're all a bunch of post whores.

the board will have to do the same as stocks that get to big, it'll have to split.
Link Posted: 10/19/2004 7:18:09 PM EST
no, we cannot seperate the clans

I certainly don't think that. I'm actually glad it is doing so well. The more people brought to the dark side the better. Just hard to keep up with it all. As far as all the trolling and drama, I've pretty much ignored most of it. Saves a lot on reading time.

Just amazed at all the growth recently. Remember when GB had to limit the server to 1000 people at a time? Now it seems there's a constant 2-3k with bumps nearing 4k. At least the board is running nice and quickly, minus the missing avatar to my left.

No too many people

A few too many TROLLS though...

IMHO, blatant trolling should once again be a CoC violation in-and-of-itself, and all troll accounts should be locked on sight...

Instead of rewarding them with 9+ page threads, kick em off ASAP...

We all know who the trolls are (when a 1 post account suddenly starts praising John Kerry, or advocating some snake-oil product, etc... Bye-Bye)...

If that's too harsh, just allow kick petitions for non-paying-members, where the paying membership can (with enough 'signatures') remove a troll from the site...

I'm a newbie. I have posted lots of questions and have learned so much from what people here with experience have to say. I can honestly say that I've learned a lot from this board.

The only part I don't like is that there are a lot of angry type people around here who have nothing better to do than to slam / bash / stomp on peoples posts. Generally, these people have nothing positive or valuable to contribute and just go around posting garbage on other peoples threads.

Is there any way to vote these people of the ARFCOM island? I know I'm a newbie and shouldn't be trying to muscle around here, but I'm really tired of reading 5 worthless posts for every 10 usefull ones. (maybe that's a slight exaggeration).

Thank you to everyone here who's helped me out!

I have no idea! Discussion boards have fascinated me since my first contact
with them. I have no reference to compare them to, because they were not
something I have any experience with.

You have to like the 21st century
