It happened when people left for better sites.  This is my first time posting in probably half a year, the captcha, spam, incompetent moderators, etc. all create an atmosphere that I don't care for.

Totally agree with the above post, but I've never had to deal with the moderators. Just simply replying to a thread is hard enough! Isn't it in ST's best interest to make these boards more user-friendly? After all, it's their "brand" that's being trashed. Maybe they thought the hard-to-read catchpas would put off the spammers and trolls, but obviously that's not working. So why not make it easier for the genuine fans, especially us newbies (sigh!)

I also think discussion on this topic is exactly what is needed. If we all simply walk away, how can anything possibly change? Cheers all :-)

Pretty much. I have been on and off this site for quite some time -- and the last time it was because of all that "free download" spam that had nothing to do with Star Trek.

I shall be posting more now. I will be starting a new blog and some of my reviews will certainly be Star Trek related. I am just busy. Also politics on boards does not belong too often and in general causes me great annoyance. I am always willing to talk about topics. People have recently been forceing wrongness into my life& I have been gone. Violating my personal prime directive so to speak, invade my lifestyle & try to change it to suit them. Now things have improved again& I am back with my computer. Always glad to hear from you.
