SO - what went wrong?

When Charlron Heston finally swings by, chased by a couple of monkies and finds the old ruins of SO, what will they conclude was the death of SO?

I think I know where the slippery slope started............what do you think?


BTW, did you see what I did with the title there?

"You can put lipstick on a pig...but it's still a pig!!!"

you are a clever old stick aren't you!

SO - what went wrong? hmmm not sure. lots of silly billies taking things too seriously, other silly billies thinking they were the only ones with opinions worth listening to, more silly billies who posted when they should have kept quiet and others who didn't post when they should have replied.

but mostly .... people taking things too seriously!

ooh and the cliques - don't forget the cliques! i know they existed even though everyone denied it! it got pretty petty at times and we all took each other for granted.

oh - and some of us were so ******** sensitive! it was toe curling at times!

oh and having a ******** swear filter, who the **** can operate and speak freely with a ******* swear filter, ****** me right off it ****** did.

and i can't swear on facebook cos my mum is on there! so i have to send some pretty rum texts I can tell you - i mean wtf is that all about?

... SO that's my two penn'oth - so what's your opinion, Mr G?

I don't think things like cliques, egotism, Northern Angel, oversensitive posters and the swear filter really made that much difference in the demise of SO. Those things there are there on most/every forum and they haven't caused those forums to die (obviously not NA specifically, but posters who annoy lot of the membership are evident on nearly every forum - they cope with it).

If I had to put my finger on a single event that may have started the demise, I'd say it started a couple of years ago when Haydon shut down the site without warning for a few months.

If at first you don't succeed, failure may be your style.

The current episode of Merlin is quite apt here...

Space reserved for interesting fact.

IIRC I was at a meet in Dublin with no internet access when you last closed the site, so I was never really sure what happened.

But if I was to hazard a guess as to why, it would be that one or more members where criticising how the site was being run.
