As someone who has been reading for a long time, but just started posting, I must say that the quality of ET has declined rapidly. And it is due to the people who post, not the moderators or Baron. I think Baron and the moderators should take a more active role in policing the boards, and ban members who are causing problems and do not contribute in a worthwhile manner. This is not a public board, where anyone can do anything. Baron has the right to do whatever he wishes - ET is his. But, something needs to be done quickly. I know several people who quit coming here and contributing, and ET probably loses several more daily. For some reason, it seems that all of the posters who occupy the Yahoo! message boards have chosen to come here and cause problems!
