I'm sorry, I just don't see this "decline" that Hotsuma's talking about.

Now, I've only been here since May of last year- a lot of you were here before I showed up. So if any of you old-timers can recall an era when the forums contained anything considerably more than:

-Stupid Word Games (TM)
-Links to funny/interesting websites
-Random fights and arguments between members, often about nothing in particular
-Rants, reviews, and other bitchings
-Fluff
-Quizzes, polls, and getting-to-know-you threads (like "PICS", "Where do you live", etc.)
-Silly one liners or innocuous comments which inexplicably lead to 8-page-long discussions

....then let me know. Otherwise, I still find the forums to be just as entertaining a distraction as they were when I first showed up.

Things are WAY better than they used to be.

Hotsuma is just having a fit of elitist pique.

"Oh, look at me, everybody!  I've been here long enough to remember when things were WAY KEWL!  Aren't I special?"

Pffft.

There used to be a little less fluff, but I think it was mostly because we had fewer members.

To everyone complaining about Mods and/or fluff:  choose one - strict moderators or fluff. you just can't have it both ways. The Mgt removed serveral "dead" treads because they take up space, and the space ain't free. Be glad we still have a place where you can sayt or do almost anything without having the Admin or Mods jump all down your throat. And if you want to have a serious coversation, just have it. Bring up a serious issue, and ignore the inevitable fluff.

i think mods are a good idea.  someone needs to have a set of keys..  maybe a few people.  and would you trust -me- with them?  
i'm an asshole.  i wouldn't trust me with them.

i think hotsuma's just a grumpy pirate..  but i like him cause of it.  
i don't always agree with everyone here, but i like them, as a general rule..  even chef and the grammar nazi.  it's part of the charm of this demented clubhouse.

if hotsuma's really left for good, peace man, your loss, dig.

there may be a position of 'official stabbinator' open at some point.
submit your applications to the mods.
consistancy is the blah blah-blin of blah blah blah

I doubt he actually left.

At best, he'll be back tomorrow acting like normal. At worst, he'll be back tomorrow as a troll. Either way, he's not one to just up and leave. Trust me.
