Not That My Opinion Counts For Anything...

... But this forum is pissing me right off.
I fancy having my say, like so many others have already done.
There are several threads/Blogs bemoaning the 'decline in quality' of ADISC; the influx of useless and frustrating Newbies, issues with the Higher Powers etc.
Frankly, however, all the in-fighting, bitching, and metaphorical whisperings that have followed are spoiling the mood that the very same people claim to want on the forum.
You're all making it very difficult for a new member to settle in when a lot of conversations and cliques exist beyond their reach and it's pretty unsettling to see other members yo-yoing back and forth between being banned or not, or being spoken of as a martyr, hero or People's Champion.
It's all so ridiculous.
There is an atmosphere around here and it's painful. It's obvious but largely unexplained.
Now forum politics aren't my thing, but I would like to know what has gone on, if only to feel included. It seems, however, you have to be part of the gang, or have to have been there, to know any details, so...
I shall doubtless continue on in ignorance.
