Previous Post

Do you remember when a few weeks ago I said that on dec 25 and 26 combined
in 2006 there were 98 posts? Well, just to show I am as capable as anyone in wasting time, I counted the posts in dec 2006 and divided by 31.
In that month the board had about 58 posts a day on average.

In perspective, in Jan. 2015 we averaged 6 a day, total 185. \(sad\)


Under a different user name I was a prolific member of this community from the end of the 90's and into the 2000's. I made some friends here, had some great times and even made a trip to visit some folks. This place was a lively carnival. I look back fondly on those days.

But in the days after OMD, got very heavy handed with the moderation. Not the mods on this particular board back then; they were fine and I considered them the best of the bunch. Yet at one point we had mods from other boards here stepping in and silencing OMD criticism.

With that, I stopped posting here altogether. I went to another forum where civil criticism was still allowed and I've been discussing Spidey there ever since. I drop in here just to see reaction to certain news or storylines but this is the first time I've posted here in roughly six years.

Again, this isn't a knock on this board's mods from back then (or now). They were doing fine. This is just about the site in general and the boards as a whole.

This post may get deleted and my IP may get banned. Doesn't affect me either way since I don't consider this 'home' anymore, so to speak. But when I saw your post I felt compelled to comment on it.

All my best,
