Some time after cliques formed. Around the time admins started forming their own pet armies of minions and lackey's.

Shortly thereafter users that were agreeable to the sites admins, such as bollocko, were given the all clear to take the piss and ban anyone who was un-bollocko-like.

Anyone answering back against one of bollockos units and their piss taking gets reported. A 'totally impartial' mod arrives, sees one of the flock (dudess the contrary shrew for example) waving their clique-card and pointing to a dissenter. Dissenter gets banned. Minion gets a smiley face sticker and a pat on the head. This goes on for some time til it reaches such a scale that people just decide 'fuck it' and leave.

In 2006 people were saying it was better years ago. Problem with boards is the layout is shit and outdated. But they're afraid to change it because most of the older regular users like it. It'll continue to die and lose users to reddit.

That's it isn't it? It really was a propaganda tool of sorts not so much intentional, but due to it being an echo chamber.

I remember reading a personal issues thread from some poor misfortune who had been so warped from the group think she was losing real life friends due to starting on them over social justice type things boards had and her entire thread was why are people in real life so different to people I talk to here in boards.

All tho unfortunately that personal issues section is very dangerous the people giving "advice" often have far bigger issues and a ton of emotional baggage that they should not in any way give a person advice on their life.

May as well have Josef Fritzl on there giving parenting advice.

What reaction did she get in the thread?

God I'd love to have read that thread.
