I have been following with interest the recent upsurge in complaints to the administration, both on this board and across the whole JC. In a conversation on a seperate board, a fellow poster who has recently left the JC offered me the following explanation of the cause of the JC's current problems. He suggested that when the community began, there were a large proportion of normal, well-rounded posters, often posting from work for their own amusement. What's more, these guys ran the board, and made the rules. Then, as Star Wars hysteria grew with the hyping of Episode 1, the number of nerds, geeks and social inadequates posting on the boards grew tremendously. Very soon, the etire JC was over-run with socially-backward sci-fi nerds who could argue for 15 days straight about the length of DV's lightsabre without the slightest trace of humour or irony. Eventually, it got so bad that many of the original posters left, including many of the moderators. This left a power vacuum in the board hierarchy and, as everyone knows, nerds abhor a vacuum. Sure enough, the gaps in the administration were filled by resident nerds, geeks and social inadequates, resulting in the present situation of a community run by, and rules being set by, socially-backward sci-fi nerds who could argue for 15 days straight about the length of DV's lightsabre without the slightest trace of humour or irony. I wonder what other posters and the admin make of his argument? Edit: Okay, we gave this a chance to do something productive, and we have pages of nothing. There are many other threads here that relate to ways to improve the boards, and things can be discussed in them.
