I haven't been here too long, as you can see, but long enough to come to the opinion that FST could really benefit from more stringent moderation. I would mostly browse the BitTorrent forums, and while these forums are an incredibly useful resource and have been very helpful to me, to be quite honest there is an awful lot of rubbish posted in them.
The first problem is the endless amounts of Best/Worst/Top 10/Favourite threads, which I can clearly see have all been done to death many times. They all inevitably end up in a nauseating avalanche of one-word, repetitive posts which offer nothing of value, and only serve to clog up the thread and make it impossible to have any genuine discussion.
Case in point: http://filesharingtalk.com/vb3/bitto...-series-103132
As you can see, this thread quickly descends into a mess of one line posts repeating the same thing and adding absolutely nothing. Hard to read isn't it?
Here's another which happened to be on the first page of threads when I looked: http://filesharingtalk.com/vb3/bitto...rackers-171491
This kind of thread is doomed from the start, and is a perfect example of why they should be banned completely. There was never a chance of any meaningful discussion, just countless posters chiming in with their own top 3. Really what is the point?
These rubbish posts can also be seen in other threads, like people saying "Good luck", or "Good offer", and contributing nothing useful. This is even more frustrating because it can ruin a good thread.
What I'd like to see happen is the mods cracking down on this type of behavior, as I think it is a big problem at the moment, and to get rid of it would be of huge benefit to the community.
