Nobody bitched about how the state of the forum was declining quite like how TheBig3 did. These days when people bitch about how the forum isn't as good as it used to be, it just feels like displaced anger.

I remember when MB wasn't a place for maladjusted alcoholics to go on drunken ****posting binges. Shudder.

This place was SUPER welcoming when I joined in 2004. Everyone was friendly, for the most part. If you acted like a bully or an asshole, you weren't glorified and imitated like nowadays, you were put in your place by everyone, because people actually cared about this place, not just using it as an outlet to get their jollies or harass people from the safety of a keyboard. But that was definitely a different age, as far as the intent goes.
I remember getting at least one death threat shortly after joining
It wasn't the welcoming atmosphere that had me sticking around. I'm not sure what it was, but I kept being attracted like a fly to a pile of warm manure.

When I joined, this place was still new and everyone was on a level playing field, so it felt more inviting.

My life is pristine, and this place is a toilet. You all are my skin of evil.

I thought you were super depressed these days and avoiding your family to isolate yourself with depressing music?
