In response to rameakap's comment:
True, this place is nothing like it once was. I have the fungus on ignore, it is still hard not to see the negative, childish, bullying and personal attacks he promotes and creates... but it makes the board somewhat more user friendly.
I suggest everyone ignore fierce, he is mentally ill and will never change, he likely can't even see what a disgusting human being he is.
The board has degraded, but not by a single poster - it always takes two to disagree and then to devolve into name-calling. Singling out Fierce is, as you say, childish, and while he may get into it with his primary nemesis and that hijacks every topic, left to his own observations, he's often objective and insightful.
However, the real reason that we've seen this decline has been due to the mindless and pathetic trolls, mostly Laker trolls who cannot contain their adolescent scribblings. Let's face it, we will have disagreements here, but as long as people think an opposing view is stupidity, nothing will change for the better. And, don't reply to post begun by trolls - being ignored will send them away faster than any response might. To them, that would feel like they gave a party and no one showed up.
