    Like anything you get fans and haters, forum by definition is a public meeting place for open discussion. I just wish it could actually be that. With threat of banning and
    reporcussions, this, like the game, like Western society and the state of things people are too scared to say what they feel for threat of reporcussion or being singled out. We just get the same stale non thinking party lines.

    Inclusive not exclusive, welcome others points of view.

    If you play a game, you obey the games rules or they remove you from the game

    If you visit a forum, you obey the forums rules or they remove you from the forum

    It's pretty simple, if you don't want to follow the rules, then don't use the service that is being provided.

    Dunno what this thread about. Moderation now is way more relaxed than it was under the old regime and their "close any thread people appear to be interested in" policy.

    LOL! I like the ccomment "like Western Society...". Dingbat. Western is more laid back than some others. It's just if you're in my house, you live by my rules. Same with sponsored forums and gamesites, it isn't really a free for all, it's their paid for house, and they can rule it as they wish.

    It's pretty simple. Be respectful of others and the ROC and you can post all you like.

    Most posters have poofed and gone to other places because the troll behavior is considerable worse with the revised ROC and change in attitude of the current staffing.

    So yeah, you now have a group of like minded individuals that have the, as you state, same stale non thinking party lines.

    *looks at last locked thread about this subject*

    To be honest, there really aren't any other active UO fan sites/forums. Not sure why nobody has tried to tap into the UO demographic, but there are still enough players in game that if a group put together a site, they could tap into those not happy with Stratics...la

    I respectfully disagree, the site has had more threads, and more active users lately than anytime I have seen it in the past since probably around 2012 or so. (and I'm saying that as a normal poster not a moderator).

    Sorry I live in the "Western Society" and I have no fear of speaking my mind when it is needed. Don't care if I do offend anybody which includes RL and the Internet life.

    There is a line of course I don't cross but that is because I am human after all.

    There is a difference in discussion versus arguing. Heated debates versus plain out right insults.

    The internet has two flaws. Everybody is right and nobody is wrong is the first flaw. Second flaw, everything in the internet is absolutely 100% truth.

    I could add a third flaw which is everybody is a lawyer on the internet because we know the law :p

    I'd say I could give a pretty unbiased opinion on the traffic at Stratics since I have a pretty long history. In all honesty, the UO forums are pretty dead compared to what they once were. I won't touch the reasons I think that has changes because it would be merely speculation...la

    " like Western society and the state of things people are too scared to say what they feel "

    OMG East vs West . Biggie Smalls was king.

    WTF does this have to do with the game at all?

    Cleaned this thread up a bit. Locked to prevent more completely off-topic drama.
