At first I thought this was one of "those" threads, but then I saw the OP and the opinion was completely the opposite. I agree that Smogon's tiers are clearly the best and the standard. However, I also agree with user 3.14kachu. All the haters are gonna stay away if there's nobody actually hating on Smogon. I mean, why would you go on a ship if you knew it was sinking? Then again, I could be wrong and this could end up being the next controversial Competitive Discussion thread.
