My enjoyment of StarTrek.com is concluded as of today.


Once again I have come to visit and what do I see...some irate bather from a disgruntled person spamming it's butt off like no bodies business.


What perpetrated this behavior is beyond me, but it is surely the mind of some perverse former member who wished nothing less then the absolute destruction of this official Star Trek site.


It saddens me they could not except the banning of themselves from their own actions and feel the need to ruin it for all...as if they had some thing so important to say in the first place that they couldn't control themselves.


I have seen a lot of idiotic behavior here over the years, a lot of fighting, name calling, repeat offenders multiple screen names...but have also witness some genuine intelligent chats of subjects.


To the person who feels compelled to spam and fill the boards with their own vengeful hate, you are no Star Trek Fan by any interpretation of being a fan.


Star Trek will Live on no matter what you do here, even if it means the eventual taking down of these boards and the site it self.


To the rest of the people who have and will continue to visit for as long as this site is here (even DamitJim, who can't except the fact that Kirk is the single greatest Starship Captain ever) farewell.


Peace, Live Long and Prosper.


Signing off for ever,

I'm planning to stay, Servalanfan. And I am a hugo TOS fan (and I don't mean that I'm fat), so you won't be alone. We can debate TOS when everyone else is gone. I just got here not too long ago, and I'm enjoying it immensely, so no moron spammer is going to scare me off. Although, know-it-all's might make it a little difficult at times. lol


Ahh, Kirk, my old friend. Do you know the Klingon proverb which tells us revenge is a dish that is best served cold? It's very cold....in space.

I'm not on as much as I use to be but I am still here. It's harder with the boards being down, and the spamming, and the captcha. But I will post a few times a week.

lol. A mass closure of accounts by users. imagine that


No one would put their money where their mouth is. For sure. Everyone that's not around, right now, WILL show up sooner or later. I guarantee/predict it! You can book it.


They can't stay away from here. No matter how they try.


Just wait till some new promo pictures come out, or a teaser trailer. They'll definitely be back for an official trailer when it hits.


Just wait, you'll see

Only Admin can close/ban/indefinately suspend member (user) accounts.


I can't blame some for feeling that they want to leave here.  It isn't as fun as it used to be.  Yes, I know that there have been and always will be spammers and trolls, but recently it seems that some trolls are out for blood.  Out to actually hurt others.  Like it's their 'job' to troll, bait, flame and report others that have the nerve to disagree with them or for percieved &/or imagined wrongs done them. 


 


I am a fan of Star Trek and the IDIC.  It would be very boring if everyone was the same or if wveryone had the same POV/thoughts/ideas and never had differing opinions.  I've been a member of ST.com for a long time.  I've seen changes to the site.  Granted the chages to the board are the worst I've seen in a long time, but I am hopeful that someday it will be fixed.  Call me stupid, but I am hopeful.


And since I am very hopeful, I will stay and hopefully I will be here to see changes for the good and better!  Boards fixed, torlls managed if not removed more permanatly than they currently are and that we can all, at least the majority of us, agree to disagree.  And that we eventually get an Admin/Mod team here that are Star Trek fans, care about Star Trek and really do care about making this board the best that it can be!  And Admin/Mods that are willing to listen to the members here and maybe even chat with us occasionaly

Don't let the spamers and trolls win! I have been a Trekkie for 27 years and anyone that uses this site for hate and to put-down and call other people names is not a Star Trek fan and should be banned forever!

I must say one thing I find dissapointing about this website is the trivia questions. I have been doing them for about 2 hours off and on now and I have found at least 6 or 7 wrong answers. A few examples are: it said that the first two part TNG episode is Unification, when it is really The Best of Both Worlds. The Enterprise-D was designed by Andrew Probert, not Wah Chang. The USS Equinox is a Nova class starship, not a Intrepid class starship. Data commanded the USS Sutherland, not the USS Wellington in the TNG episode "Redemption part II."
