While it has gotten worse lately, more people grow tired of it, and itís next to impossible to have an intelligent conversation regarding anythingÖthe G&O is - at least of this writing - still Getbigís bread & butter.
Itís the board that generates the most traffic and allows Ron to do what he does here.
Every single board Iíve visited from the top down seems to have a substantially small fraction of regular posters by comparison - even the Political board with itís 63,218,179 topics only has about ten regular contributors, and several of those are gimmicks.
However, the serious boards are golden: training, nutrition, history, religion, usÖ
Getbig is like the circus in the sense that thereís something for everyone.
I reckon a lot of people follow the same general migration patterns. When they first join, they wander around the G&O bullshitting for a while. Then they either leave, or find themselves a little area where things are a bit more sensible, and make that their main board. Of course you've got the exceptions to that, the ones who need the drama and attention of the G&O to make themselves feel better...
