    Yup, the pouch lickers are out this evening. I bet they were jealous someone else beat them to the post, until they saw the wrath...

    People may not be trying to get ahead. Individuals deal with conflict differently. Some try to accommodate and appease the upset party to diffuse a situation. Others avoid the situation entirely, or get aggressive. I tend to fall in the group that suggests changes to prevent or remedy the situation, even when I shouldn't (i.e. the GF doesn't want my advice, she just wants me to listen and agree with her).

    I'm with Teawrex on this one. Personally I tried to be proactive, with mixed results, and have nothing I wish to gain beyond this place being a healthier environment.

    1. I tightened up my posting
    2. Sent a one way PM out of courtesy
    3. Tried to intervene in a rando pile-in
    4. Polished off and published something I'd been working on
    5. Wrote a sincere public thank you, knowing how it may be interpreted, but hoping

    others would show their support. (I re-wrote the thing an hour later because I got carried away writing something fancy-pants)
    6. I've been PMing a member struggling to fit in

    I'll probably be a bit less active or take a break, at least until I have an article to post or something.

    Don't get me wrong I'd rather this than HF, but the way it's happening is disappointing. But I've never had to run a forum before.

    For the record I suggested to close the registrations when Hf changed his layout. This was totally foreseeable.

    Yeah, it's been building. It either has to become an invite-only club, or start to change and adapt to having a larger population.

    EDIT: And if there's demand for something more honest than HF, and less hostile than SBAF, eventually we may see someone create a new site to meet that demand.

    No need to be an invite-only club. But there's a strong sense of community here, and it takes time for newcomers to "get it". Periodical opening would have been a solution IMO

    Or just be more liberal with the ban hammer, or at least temp ban hammer.

    Nobody is doing anything for money here. Mods and admins don't need the extra work. Anyhoo, what's done is done.
