Some folks mourn the exit of a handful of folks as if they alone were the heart and soul of Power Slide, and I think that's a bit short-sighted. It's not nearly their absence but moreso the other folks who got tired of or bored with, all the virulent personal attacks and grudge matches. That would include:

These folks were fun contributors who really made this place come alive - without all negativity.
TBH, a lot of people probably don't come around anymore because other things take precedent over rehashing the same old controversies. People get married, get reacquainted with old friends at the pub, get strung out on drugs etc. Expecting any forum to remain the same for multiple decades is like expecting to remain fast and close friends with everybody you knew in high school. A few members mentioned are actually still occasionally active. As has been inferred before (not to mention proved by Barry and Crazy Ex Girlfriend) some members are content to lurk about or pop in now and then to see if they've been mentioned.
Keshav and Theo like this.

So, on and on it goes? I got sucked into a vortex of vitriol here, and I STILL don't know how the mud flinging fest started. And frankly I don't and never did give a damn. Just don't throw your dirt in my face and expected me to take it. Thanks.

It is particularly peculiar that people skulk and lay down a snipe or a 'like' but don't talk about the racing. Good golly. At least throw out some trash talk about Marc or Cal or something, before you sidle off to the hinterland. Best of lurking!

I'm only ever lurking here. Very very very rarely there is some interesting snippets to read. Not interested in the slightest in getting into the mud slinging between posters, or the tales of how brilliant it used to be. It's just not a pleasant place to be involved in. I'll continue to read though, due to my obsession with motogp.

I wouldn't worry about it. If people refuse to respond to the sniping, the snipers eventually call it quits.

As far as nostalgia goes - every generation is guilty of it. What to do?
