Since my first becoming a member of Broke Straight Boys in March 2010, there have been two major purges of forum members. The first one had to do with members wrongly trying to get personal info on the models. Then, most recently, there has been another purge due to members wanting more say so on the site about models.
Both have had a devastating effect on the forum. While I have over 400 posts since March, my own participation on the forum has become very limited and almost rare because there are so few people left and contribute to serious topics and well as humorous posts, such as my former custom, depends on more interchanges of ideas on the forum than exist today. The forum is operating on a skeleton crew of its former self.
I keep hanging on hoping there will be a return to its former glory. These past purges have removed key members that contributed more than what appears on the forum today. For me to write with a sense of humor, there has to be a climate and a comfort level that supports this. We no longer have these two factors on our forum.
