Seriously what has happened with this MB. All the old guard seem to vanished? JD, CEO & plenty of others seem to have just vanished. Is it the influx of the borderline retarded folk on here who only talk about one subject & two fighters?

What has happened to this site?

Far from being part of the old guard I am a relatively new poster here in relation to many of you guys.  I used to read the boards before I was a member and I was attracted to post here (albeit infrequently Ollie) because of the quality and lack of spamming.  Plus this site had rules which appeared to be adhered to.  I think there is still a sticky at the top of the page stressing no duplicate topics.

I have noticed a genuine decline in the quality of this board and feel it has become more like the other boards I don't even bother to read anymore.  Is it a forum raid?  Maybe.  The better posters here still keep the board alive but they are going round in circles making the same points in a different manner to the umpteen new guys who all have one agenda.

Well, you know what?  I don't blame the old time posters for
walking away.  I have had to frown at some of the stuff I have read of late including a nonchalant disregard by the sites admin for the guys who kept this board as the premier place to read boxing opinion when it wasn't infiltrated with a thousand douche bags.  It's almost as if Fighthype has decided to use the Floyd catchphrase for it's own purpose with a little twist on it....."If it makes traffic, it makes sense!"

Yep!

Funny, but I don't really see it being any better at other message boards at sites that do MORE traffic, and yet, have FAR MORE trolls and just plain childish posters. I really don't think it's as bad as some of you "old guard" say it is.

JD got married....CEO said he was taking a break...the rest of you grumpy old timers seem to still be around though. As for anyone who got banned...I ain't got a problem with them, so by all means, ask the mods who banned them if they can come back.
