Blame it on the rain!
"the downfall of this forum coincides with the way Waasta, aka Byron was treated with the crescendo being his banning. "
Too bad that's 100% bullsh*t!
Go ask Byron, HIS actions and HIS determination to continuously and unrepentantly violate the TOS had everything to do with his banishment. I'm pretty good friends with Byron, he'll tell you the same thing.
Selling the prodj URL out from under us started the rapid decline... the treatment of moderators by ownership also contributed greatly.
