Noooo! Don't leave!
Who am I kidding? I understand completely. There are only a handful of people here that I keep coming back here to speak to.
Truly I don't want you to leave, but there is no way I can stop you...or is there?
Think of it this way. If everyone knowledgeable leaves, no one knowledgeable will be drawn to this site and it will continue to sink lower and lower, filling more inexperienced minds with garbage! The more we post and have actual intellectual, factual conversations, the more likely it is that others we can relate to will find interest and join in. Or the inexperienced will become knowledgeable themselves! I always say, if only one single person reads something I write and takes from it a bit of knowledge, it was worth the time.
But then again, you may want to expand your own mind and not just expand other's. I have the same thoughts.
I'm personally giving the website another month or so, and I'll decide from there if the level of communication has raised. You're always going to get the newbie dabbler that reads too much Harry Potter and watches Twilight. But a good forum has a solid foundation of frequent posters who have quality knowledge that can be debated without animosity. This place needs some work, but there are a few flowers among the weeds that may be enough to turn the board around. We will see...
So think about it and decide whether or not you want to be a factor in banishing the ignorance of the board, stirring up some good conversation, and imparting wisdom/knowledge. There are many newbies here who just need a good push in the right direction. And there are even more here that lurk (you know who you are, sitting there reading this now, and not planning to post!) But they may post if there is something worth posting about.
I do hope you stay.
