I post over there, there is virtually no moderation. You left because you got warned for constantly starting arguments in their chatroom, people threatened to leave unless you got banned. And then you got banned

I had to supress a laugh when I read that ACF quit a forum because "the people on their [sic] carried on like teenage girls."

The fun got sucked out of this place. Damiano Machiavelli tried to bring it back, but he was killed in a bike-auto collision.

As I stated below, what TheGame said was not factually correct.

I got warned for starting arguments. I think we can substitute that word for debates. I did not get banned. I told Dimspace to deactivate my account. You can even ask him. You are correct about the people threatening to leave because of me but it was my decision and I am more than enjoying my time on this forum.

IN fact, I will post what I said to Dim in my 'direct messages' on twitter.

I will be heading back to CN Forum. I will officially send you a request of deletion of my account within the next 24hrs.

I am sad to give you this news but tonight was the straw that broke the camel's back. Sorry to leave your forum as it is a good setup.

[....replies]

I honestly don't see how I was posting differently in the past few days than I am now. I honestly do not see it as "tour fever" as the way some people are behaving is rather childish on and off the forum and what happened last night on the tdf chat room ****ed me off big time.

...substitute all you want but its basically the same thing except that debates have rules...so you were arguing when everyone else wanted a discussion...you were a very disruptive element, end of story...

I think it falls under the general overmoderation rule of making sure no one discusses anything fun.

I have been here from the start and I honestly cannot remember when this supposed golden age, these good old days were supposed to be.

There has always been fighting, there have always been good discussions and as far as I'm concerned that is still the case. Good members have left, new ones have arrived, it's all good fun.
