Yea this basically happened because too many people disagreed with each other, which lead to no big names in the scene coming on the forum any more. So differences of opinion are sort of discouraged
I must admit when I first joined there were a lot more 'big names' on here but all a lot of them ever did was tell each other how awesome they were and if anyone (ie. Jung) disagreed, even in jest, it turned into a massive testosterone-fuelled bully-a-thon against anyone who happened to go against the status quo. There were loads of exceptions of course, but these days nsb seems to be a lot more open to differences of opinion, as far as I can tell anyway.
But then maybe things are the same and I've just got used to it, I dunno.
Basically it has always been the same since year 0 (2003), there are no cliques, everyone is twats, jogwi or close the forum down and we will all have to go and actually do some work.
Prior to year 0 it was a lot more peaceful and no one argued at all, but it wasn't as fun as it is now to be honest
On one occasion I was dead and then my pet cat came and pissed on my face
