    I have noticed that a bunch of past members who had maxed out greens and hundreds to thousands of posts are gone. You are right Noia AO has changed. Everything changes at one time or another. It can't be helped. Think of it more like a progression. Old members move out and the top spots are replaced by other people who move their way up. It's life I guess and hopefully some of the new up and comers will be able to contribute as much as the old members did in due time.

    Noia is right, AO has gone down the pan recently. I remember the good old days where I lay into Windows without fear of being negged, start mini-flame wars with Negative (which he usually won ) discuss random stuff on IRC etc.

    Now we seem to have been taken over by a bunch of immature prats and post whores who have nothing better to do than sit on AO 24/7. Most of them haven't contributed that much, but somehow manage to get 11 greenies anyway.

    As you may have noticed the last couple of days, I'm mightily cheesed off about all this.

    But did you get any "whine" with it?? (sorry couldn't resist... it's something we do in the political game I play...)

    They've started already? Schools aren't supposed to finish for another 4 weeks over here.

    Colleges and universities are out here for 4 months. High schools and grade schools should be out at the end of June IIRC (been a while since I was in one of those).

    Damn, you found me. I was hoping that nobody will notice that.

    Very true.

    They may have moved on, but they can't resist coming back (even if only to say that they have moved on)...
