The most active forums all appear to have taken a huge traffic hit of late.

This is what happens when inconsistent moderation is applied to an on line community.

There has been a tremendous amount of fanboy enablement, and this always causes a drop in activity once people get sick of patting each other on the back.

Moderation is the best thing that's happened at DPR. This was troll central before moderators were finally implemented. Posting that Nikon cameras are crap over and over and over again kills forums rather than helps build them.

It's a better place today.


AMEN, Jim.  I visit much more often, now that it has become pleasant.  And I think the moderation has been exquisitely fine-tuned and consistent.
