1.) we need a 'report' button
2.) the mods need to crack-down, it used to be that we couldn't say 'homosexual marriage' without threat of being baned.

admittedly it wasn't that big of a deal in mid 99.

I think the change is due to the large amount of people posting now. More people, and more topics...visited again and again and again and...well you get the picture.

and people have "discovered" the quick reply. So more posting without reading the entire thread.

Nah it was a lot meaner here before ithe influx of AOL Chatroom Kiddies prior to 99. It was also a lot more interesting and fun.

For example, Argo's thread on lateness of engineers. He asked a valid question but certain people turned that into a big fight between the definition of programmer and software engineer.

I'm probably gonna get fscking flamed but you know what, I don't care. Anandtech OT has been a very nice, funny place but lately it has turned into a daycare. Maybe it's because I care of the integrity of OT.

So what's wrong, just having a bad day everyday!? Express your thoughts!

I'm done now. :D

*flame suit on*



PS: Don't get me wrong, there has always been good threads here, not all of them are bad and a flamefest.

You are experiencing selective memory. ATOT has always been a hotbed of e-badasses and malcontents.
