I have been here since 1999 and I have to say that I have noticed that TFL is losing some of the spirit that made it a fun place. Recently, a very important member of the TFL family was booted for "pushing the limits" one time too many. This guy was no troll, he was probably one of the most knowledgeable members (if not the most) here. I won't mention his name because the last time I did the post was deleted.
I have also noticed the way threads that would have made it in the past have started getting locked quickly. Further, moderators are interjecting more often, IMHO, to the detriment of useful discussion.
Obviously, this is not my forum, and the owners can do whatever they want. I just don't feel the changes here have been for the better.
Don't blame me, I voted for Cthulhu
