    Yo, this site went downhill when it switched over to this new forum.  These so-called moderators pick and choose who they ban (favoritism).  A bunch of 16-year-old’s have taken over this forum.

    If people can believe it, once upon a time this forum used to be normal and civilized. We still had jokes and bitchy users but we just wanted to talk about awards. When I first got here, I could never have imagined forum drama would be this prevalent.

    We used to have people like Forwardswill and Jasonface and lovelylovely who were respectful and didn’t stir anything up. We had discussions which were lively but were always polite. Now we have Thatcher and Kord and their million accounts, Pulp being involved somehow, Ayanami and Babypook’s weird stuff, and four freshly banned users.

    The people I bring up as being “normal” are still here, but they are now much less active. I can say the same for myself. I can only speak for myself but I can imagine that those people I mentioned are deterred from being as active as they once was because this bizarre drama has completely taken over these forums.

    I hope the moderators are listening. It’s not that these normal people left, but we have been drowned out by the chaos and lunacy that still hasn’t been stopped. Those of us who simply want to talk about awards are waiting for something to be changed, and I for some sincerely hope it will be.

    Hi Miles:

    Count me among your supporters. I hardly ever read the forums anymore for the reasons you discussed. However, you’re topic heading immediately caught my attention.

    For me the final straw was about 4 years ago when some of the users on this site were complaining about how frequently the Gold Derby awards mirror the Oscars. They were saying that only people who had posted a certain number of times should be allowed to vote and everyone else should be excluded. I went on a long diatribe expressing that there were many reasons for people not posting and stating that everyone’s opinion should count equally. I will admit that I said a few things during that rant that I shouldn’t have and I went back a day later and apologized for a few of the things I said. After that I more or less gave up posting except on very rare occasions.

    I’ve also encountered the problem of starting a new topic and having someone hijack it. It would go way off course, off-topic and would turn into a bitch-fest amongst one or two people.

    Sadly it seems like this is the new “normal” around here.
