Still hate the new format, and for the most part it has lead to fewer posts and visits in general.
I think the abusive nature towards newbies has driven a lot of people away over the years. I got roasted my first post (surprisingly by B-O) because I didn't understand how naïve the post way (trying to sell FG Bordeaux to people I never met). I stuck it out, but a lot of people would just go away.
What PurpleHaze said is most important to me, all of the great people I've met and had the chance to offline with. Developed some truly great friendships here.
