I talked to Dork back when I cared about this place and he said that he wasn't around as much then because all the assholes were coming back and posting. It's not the number of people you have and it's not the overstatement of the obvious, it's the fact that you have a ton of assholes who get all the glory and people to whom things aren't as obvious as the uber-ultra-mega-pride-lovin-fans.
You can't ask a question without getting flamed. You can't disagree with an admin without getting flamed. You can't complain about anything without getting flamed. Call it whatever you want, but it's right there in the rules you've established.
People abuse their rep power. Instead of actually repping intelligent, insightful, or on-topic posts, people just rep when someone makes them laugh or negs them when they disagree or don't like the point they have made. Take a look at my history. Clint negged me twice in the same post.
You can delete this post or whatever, edit my profile, neg me, do whatever... but you asked. It's the same tripe as it was before, and as the intelligent fans leave you, the assholes will just say you're doing a great job.
They're your rules, it's not my fault you won't enforce them unless it's self-serving.
