I've only just recently joined (did some browsing before that) but I say give the people what they want.
If the majority of users want to post about sex and knickers and wank fodder I say let them. Why lock the topics and alienate them?
Why allow the more "regular posters" to rule the message boards? If I was to take a shot every time I read "take it to the classifieds" on these boards I'd be dead by now. Out of interest - where do most of the "paid members" come from - the classifieds or the message boards? Greenmanpp, for example, is a basic member (ie. - he doesn't pay for full membership). It would be interesting to know where the big bucks come from.
If I owned the website my focus would be on the classifieds and I'd be less "strict" with the message board section... (unless illegal stuff was being posted obviously).
I don't see why the message boards can't be used for both intellectual discussion / debate and married men in their 40s talking about how much they like to wear panties. It would at least drum up traffic, and increase revenue. Just read what you want to read and ignore what you don't.
I know no one's going to agree with me - but just a random thought.
Hmmm married men in their 40s eh - your profile says your 32 lying about your age eh
How in your 40s are you 49
Do you think bi= married in the closet ?
Recently joined and you've done some browsing before and yet if you took a shot every time you read are it to the message boards
exaggerate much to try to make a limp point
