To what do you attribute as causes for the "mass exodus" to FAIR?

ZLMB was a great bb in its heyday. I attribute its demise (at least in part) to when the Mods started limiting folks to 5 posts a day. It was mostly intended to slow down guys like me (even there, DCP and his ilk got special protection from the Mods), but it turned out to also slow down many TBM's. I remember Scott Lloyd (very TBM poster) complaining about his being limited to 5 posts per day. And, slowly but surely, folks started leaving ZLMB and heading over to FAIR (I eventually did as well, in December 2004 or so). Censorship (including limiting how much one can say) always causes folks to lose interest, and that's exactly what happened to ZLMB, and what has/will happen to FAIR/MAD, imo.

The Main Street Plaza thread went on for some 50+ pages. It was huge.


What in the world was that about?


Church financials, closed books, buying public property and converting it to private use, freedom of speech, Salt Lake City politics. Every time it would die down, someone would file another motion or Rocky would do something stupid, and it would start up again.


It would interesting to see who posted the most on that thread.. My money would be on Scott.
