So I used TT as an example today on another message board I'm on.
First let me say I've been a member on this board for years and last year the administrator at the time was Scott Bass who is also the editor of the magazine decided to take the board in different directions and alot of the regs/locals especially the real old timers didn't like it so they voiced out and next thing you know he banned everyone. Well we have teamed up and talked to Scott and everyone is back but we had to go with new user names (I guess so SB could save face). A few months back a new admin. was appointed (Mike Davis) and the welcome hasn't been very good. Rough crowd over here.

Here's a quote from a post, Scott Bass is aka Bassy
last year, before bassy went on his pogrom, the "surfer discussion" area almost always had 125+ viewers, sometimes as many as 200.

now, you never see it hit 100. so hits are way down.

less controversy, less variety, less funny stuff, less trolls.

what are they selling? lots more bland!
