There used to be some fairly good, serious discussion in here but just recently it has turned into a place where people bump several 2 year old threads in order that they can get more posts - or reply to six or seven threads with one word answers. Usually so they can request invites in the BitTorrent section.
Threads with a modicum of discussion get buried. It's only happened since post count got turned off in the Off-topic Poll section and Funny Stuff.
I rarely check here now and suspect others do likewise.
What can be done about it?
