Over the years that I've been here, this site has declined... it isn't completely "whiny and pitiful" yet, but that is a very good description of some of it's users.
Then again, you must also keep in mind... usually their voices are the loudest ones.
I don't really believe this, but EP suggested it to me and it cracked me the hell up. I just had to join...
I do believe once critical mass has been exceeded, this site will become riddled with spambots, the same as yahoo groups etc
At first, I did. But as time went by and it stayed good, I changed my opinion. Now, I think that whiny pitiful people may come and go here, but as long as the wonderful people I know stay, it will continue to be a great site.
