Retitled: FB extension just broke 42K members

As of September 24, 2016 membership stood at north of 10K. More than the original forum ever had . . . but with an even more unfavorable gem-to-troll ratio. Still, it illustrates why a happy medium between both platforms is necessary.

Numbers do not, by any stretch of the imagination, translate into better discussions. Heck, the noise in the group can actually get downright irritating.

Just the same . . . its a membership base that the original forum itself never had. IIRC, it capped at 5K

There is indeed a VERY HIGH brain-dead / sh*t-for-brains population.  >:(

On occasion, we do find gems likes the PN modernization pro that chimed in on discussions. But the rest, by golly.

We recently declared open season on trolls.

Too many.

It's why we're playing it safe with opening up membership to the mother forum.

That's not including the hundreds we decline for having accounts that were suspiciously new.

Numbers doubled in three months

Numbers do not, by any stretch of the imagination, translate into better discussions. Heck, the noise in the group can actually get downright irritating.

Sadly, a lot join with zeal, fervor and love for the motherland...

Wisdom and knowledge is oft wasted on the shallow and superficial.
