For the record, I definitely left (and cleared my account) because of it.
In the community I currently admin, we have a 3k member chat page for an adult website of 20K users globally and 50k unregistered traffic weekly (mostly incog obviously).
Yet I never have to worry about zombie topics, and if I did, I have the mod privilege to set the rules in place to stop it being rampant; I've never had to act and mostly I spend my mod time deleting bot posts and breaking up arguments about TG rights, politics and sexual abuse insensitivity.
I realize the irony of posting in order to clarify that. I suddenly started receiving notices from my message inbox, and then I started a back and forth with BlaH about this actual topic, so arguing about why I left became the reason I kept getting new inbox messages.
I will always love Gaire, but, it's not a place I want or need to spend any time now.
I'm on this and boards....that's it.
