from reading old threads tonight and thinking. pd is doomed. it's a shadow of its former self. i don't much like what co[s]mo has become either. we're all great posters ( mostly ) but the atmosphere of superiority and self-investment in both forums destroys them, ( as well as the continuous haunting of history's shadow ).
so how do we... post in peace? return to just having a good time? because no matter who you are, whether you were here for the 'golden age' of pd or the summer '10 of co[s]mo or anything else, you remember one or maybe even a few bright beautiful forum moments where every thread was funny and everything was active and everyone was nice to post with - that's why you're still here or on co[s]mo... you foolishly believe there's a way to return to that sort of world.
the truth is, there isn't... at least not via ourselves. we're too old, we have too many responsibilities in real life to do anything like single-handedly rebuild a forum. and the ones who do have the spare time? they're just not capable of the job.
no, the only thing that can give us what we want, even if only temporary, is if we were to find a new board and post there. it's not a raid i'm proposing, i'm actually going full grade hypocrite right now; going against everything i've ever said: let's migrate.
