lol No bro. The admins thought it would be easier on themselves if they had nothing to do, so they removed it.

I would think that it would have been better to just ban a few to get the point across.

Lol it may return in a reduced state - it already was in a reduced state from its first iteration.

I doubt this is going to help this forum attract technically proficient minds. God dammit now I need to find a new tech forum. Maybe now is the time to set up my own... Who's in?

Yeah, I'm outta here too. No need to come back. I get enough tech from work everyday this was my place to just come and have some fun and shoot the shit with people.

It is going to be interesting to see how many people stop showing up.

I understand feeling the urge to let loose and vent, but there are plenty of places to do that on the web.

Then the admins should be banning people. Plain and simple. If I needed banned I'd take my ban like a man. I'm cool with that. No hard feelings cause I do the job myself on two other websites that I own. To lock the whole thing away from everyone is lame. Why punish everyone? There were some threads in there that were still viable like the hockey thread, jeep thread, Game of Thrones thread, poker threads. If it was too much work on your admins then maybe you guys need to think about getting 1. more admins or 2. people that have the time to do the admining.

I agree that the bad apples should have been banned, but this is also a tech site. If you don't need to learn anything more power to you. (Being sincere with that statement btw.)

Damn, this is disappointing. I probably won't be coming back here too much since the break room is gone. If I do, the only reason would be to begin folding again.

Urmums, I'm down for a new site.

The Break Room will be back. It just needs time to cool off.

If I were to ban those responsible it would have been more devastating.

Man, all of the other boards were already pretty much empty, save for the Folding and Help Me Build ones. Now, they won't even have the occasional Break Room junkie who stops in and answers a question. With those 4 posts per day gone, that's like 45% of the forum's traffic in those sections. Hell, the last post in the Game Arena was one I made like 15 hours ago at 6:30 in the morning.

There should be a Maximum PC membership drive to drum up traffic.
