this place has kind of gone to hell lately in the last year or so. i still love it i have just had to learn how to seperate the wheat from the chaff. seems like 2/3 of every thread is just assholes who get 10,000 posts a year saying "dupe, +1, tag" etc. or even worse saying something completely useless just to get their .02c in. basically if you have 20,000 posts and you arent an Avila, eric the hun, or a member from the old board youre just a post whore spamming an otherwise good site. (mods excluded of course)
