Threads like this puzzle me. I've said it before, but I'll say it again, it's as if some of you think of this place as some sort of an elite think
tank, or that it used to be some sort of elite think tank. Lets do a reality check, it isn't and it wasn't.
It isn't an elite think tank. They literally let just about anyone in here. Yes, there are some really smart people here. But this place is also full
of head cases, dimwits, and trolls.
It wasn't an elite think tank. I spend a fair amount of time in the archives. If you think it used to be some sort of elite think tank, you're
blindly cherry picking. And, take a look at the original dates on a lot of those posts that the mods link to in their PSAs. lol . . . "We're not
going to tolerate such and such any more!" "This time we mean it!" Yeah right. You've been saying some of that # for the last decade. The point
being though, that some of those warnings are in the decade old range, so apparently a lot of these "problems" aren't new.
As for the MudPit being some sort of seedy section of the site that brings down the rest of it, I don't see that. There are plenty of threads
outside the MudPit that are over run by morons, crazies and trolls.
But here is the thing. It's still a great site, always was a great site. It's not everything some of you want, and I get that. But don't let that
it's not everything you could wish for, prevent you from taking advantage of all benefits it does have to offer. And those benefits are substantial.
I don't get pissed off when they tell me they don't have tacos at the Italian restaurant down the street. I order up a plate of lasagna and enjoy it.
It's really the same thing here. Adjust your expectations folks, you're missing out if you don't.
