Being a silent lurker for a long time, I got to read and appreciate MERB on a regular basis. My first impression was that it was interesting to read with all its reviews and threads about our hobby. Unfortunately everything seems to have degraded in the last few months:
- There is now a whole bunch of threads about all kinds of unrelated subjects ranging from the Yankees, movies about the death of the president, the war in Lebanon, bicycle victims, Black holes and the life on earth, and many more. It's as if some members are competing for the highest number of posts.
- There are less and less reviews on MERB, and the few members continuing to post reviews are challenged by white knights wanting to save the world. People like blonds, other like brunettes, some like quick services at $160/hr and others prefer extended dates with HDH ladies with more attributes than just physical ones. Not having the same taste doesn't mean one guy is better than another. Why fight?
- Speaking of that, many members are so opinionated it's almost as if they wanted to take control of other members' opinions and MERB content in general. Many threads are degenerating in flame wars.
- MERB is slowly loosing the diversity of opinions it had before. Many less prolific posters are gone (big ones too), and most of the posts are now coming from the same guys.
- And more
Any opinion what we could do to make a better use of MERB? Or can we do anything?
