Of course the vibes have changed as the rules of the Website are being enforced more now by the new management. However, as was explained earlier when several persons were deliberately breaking the rules on various threads the admin/moderators did not read every post but if they found several post in breach of the rules they simply archived the entire thread. That did not mean all the posts were bad but sometimes if a few posts are removed in between the entire positioning of the reasoning is lost.
Also to Binghi Haiasi:
The Welcome message gives a brief idea of how the site developed and it was linked from the top of the older board and this board from December 31, 2002 and was placed to the front of the Website after a month or so. A link was recently placed back to the top of this board.
These boards should not be turned into a forum for attacking the policies that were developed by the administrators and is now being revised in collaboration with the new moderators and administrators.
Now I suggest that those who have some legitimate concerns, either join the reasoning forum where there is a section to deal with this or they can email email@example.com.
