Default have there ever been this many dolts at once?

far be it from me to be one of those "ISH was better in the old days" people but this is just painful. every thread I try to post in is infested with these people.

I really think I'm going to break out the ignore feature here.

I've never used the ignore feature before cause I've always found idiots entertaining at least a little, and if I'm not in the mood I can gloss over the posts. but these days it's out of control. they just can't be avoided anymore, and they come in such high volumes that they've lost their charm.

is it just me?

THE OFFICIAL LIST OF DOLTS. (suggest others)

1. jasonterry
2. Pleezebelieve
3. HollaBalla
4. guangmoreno
5. Baller1986
6. FabCasablancas
7. Fudge
8. Tmacman

Many of the posters on this board, with 1000+ posts, are just as bad and mindless as the newbies. How nobody notices, I have no idea.

As someone who's only been here since the new board, i'd say wasn't this bad when i first joined but it has progressively gotten worse.

On a side note though, if you're like what, 17? 18? right now and were a member of the old ISH, it begs me to ask the question, have you ever had a social life?

I have actually liked all eras equally. even the new board has had some great moments. but in the last couple months we've had a complete infestation of morons and it's really painful. and NOTHING is done.

if there were just one or two of these guys it'd be funny. but the fact is there are so many of them that they completely lose their charm and just fill up the board with nonsense.

Pleezebelieve
HollaBalla
guangermo
Baller1986
FabCasablancas
jasonterry

and those are just the ones who are standout horrible. none of the new faces that I can think of are anything special at all. at best they're passable. nobody seems to have anything interesting to say anymore. the first few months of the new board brought a collection of GREAT newbies. guys like donks, young hkm, b-low and others. but lately all we're getting is morons and they're not getting bored and moving on like usual.

then there are a great multitude of guys like mlh1981 and hawker who aren't bad, but just don't really have anything to say or anything to bring and don't even present their ideas well and make infuriating grammar mistakes so I just don't read anything they say ever.

yup. that's true too. but they're desceiving. Glove 20 is a newbie as well, he's been here less than a year. handle the rock. cool. all have thousands of posts. but, as far as I know, are less than a year old so still qualify as rookies.
