    Thumbs down Why did you leave VBF?

    I don't want to play the blame game, but I point the finger squarely at nobbies like Yash and Digitial********.


    How 'bout you?

    1 of the above. I still visit to help on the technical side but I only visit CC to see people that can't get to other sites. I liked this place, hopefully the new moderation policy will get rtd of the twats.

    Its not as friendly as it used to be.

    Well... the gayness aside, he has a point. DE hasn't been an idiot for ages, and Yash doesn't visit that often. Whats about a Moderation policy?

    VBF is friendlier now than it was before. Atleast on General VB
    Questions. I only recently started going into Chit Chat frequently.
    I don't actually see much moderation to be entirely honest.
    General VB is almost entirely open discussion now, as long as it is
    atleast remotely related to VB.

    You left because of moderation, or because you want them moderated ?

    Isn't this a bit ironic? Afterall, if you post in this thread, you didn't really leave VBF, did you?
    Everything I say is either loose interpretation of dubious facts or idle speculation rooted in irrational sentiment.

    To all intents and purposes everyone has left VBF, that's the point.

    Laugh, and the world laughs with you. Cry, and you just water down your vodka.

    Never had to use it before, never wanted to use it :shrug:

    Simple fact of the matter is, the place has changed for the worse. Probably unfair to blame any particular individual to be honest...l

    I never left.


    and it's not any different anywhere else on the internet.

    with "free speech" there are bound to be people that rub you the
    wrong way no matter what they say..

    take that dude from austrailia... rj or something
    He was really a nob....



    oh.

    Because not everyone else thinks like me, nor have you pissed me off lke it seems you have with the majority.

    Picasso, there's free speech, and there's purile nonsense. At one time, the former prevailed over the latter....

    I think this site has never been the same since all those server problems a while back. It was down for so long that many people went elsewhere...

    How 'bout you?

    As soon as the first set of moderators were put in place, the site went down hill, shortly after i left and put my effort into other sites, i sometimes came back, but after my old account was flecked up, ive hardly seen this place... until now, im still trying to get my old account back

    It's changed, but has it really gone downhill? It did for a while, but it's quite nice here now The only difference is that a lot of the 'old crowd' have floated off to other forums instead. Just because Katie, Lucy, Pix, and so on and so forth, don't post here any more, it doesn't mean that it's got worse. There's just a lot of new people on here.
