I don't really miss it. Even the solidest egos get worn down by constant brainless attacks. I sometimes have a look in when I am checking the cams, which is how I stumbled across this thing. The forums seem to be nicely dumbed down. They still have a small group of vicious little thugs, but a lot of the people who launched attacks on me are gone. I often suspected that they were the alter egos of a small group of people.
My problem was that I refused to accept people at their own estimation (including Ian D - Ian does NOT like discovering his opinions are not as well founded as he thinks they are). Plus I tend to use satire. People do not like being satirised.
