About six years ago I joined this site when it had some life and interaction. Along the way, something happened, my account got compromised and then, without notice, I got booted off. Someone had hacked my account, I was eventually told. End of membership. Over the intervening months, I came to realise membership here isn't that important unless you wish to interact or make comments. In the intervening years I’ve managed to check the site perhaps once or twice every two or three weeks and have watched it slowly dessicate. Think of the absolute dryness of the Gobi or Sahara desert. About six or eight weeks ago I noticed someone began sucking up precious megabits here by posting inane and looooong, meandering comments daily about Nike shoes and other types of athletic footwear. Who has the time or interest to read this mess which appears almost daily? Five or six years ago, the managers of this site would have cut this guy off at the knees and cancelled his account after posting one or two of these rambling, nonsensical…and outright insulting…spam missives. It says something about this site that it's eroded so badly that the posting of such seemingly endless and meaningless dreck is continually permitted. Who gives a rat's derriere about these shoes and/or the author's idiotic babblings about them?
