It's all about the forum stats.
Cruxis is actually helping the site by making accounts.
It does suck that a lot of good posters left/got banned, but I can't really blame them. I have lost track of how many times I left this place.

And I don't know if "good" is the best word to describe it, but regardless, this forum was once as funny as **** every day.
I've never really thought of "leaving" though. I mean, you're gone, but then you come back some day and you basically never left. I don't know.

Basically, yeah. (Also "bastard" is no longer censored.)That might be part of it, but since we've been having intermittent discussions about what's made misc. worse ever since late 2008, I've starting thinking that it's more just the number of people here at all. I mean, there were a lot of really smart, good posters back then, but there were also many more shitty ones everybody hated, not to mention legions of absolute nobodies who were just passing through. It's that concept of throwing enough crap at a wall until some of it sticks, and you wind up with a lot of lousy, uninspired content, but also more good and entertaining stuff.
Well yes he isn't, but I don't see why the actual admins can't. Even petty spambot accounts are not deleted. Most forums I've been on purge those instantly. Why do they still exist?Big Nutter isn't an admin, so he can't do that. But he wants to help and did you know that he is a moderator?
I mean, at this point nearly everything here on SPPf is mindnumbingly stupid. I really don't know why I come here. Here's a few decent people here ( some in misc and a good few in the RNGers group here) but other than that everyone else here is ****. I should probably leave, but when **** like Cruxis happens here you get reactions like no other, and they are honestly too damn funny.
A lot of stuff here doesn't make since. Such as the 1 month bump rule. The more space you use, the more money it cost to run the site. If I had a dollar for every duplicate thread here I'd be loaded. Hell, we could probably get custom avi's with the space you'd save but w/e.
Then we have the Dawn fanclub.

My face when this thread.
I love myself
Oh might I add that pretty much every Pokemon forum ( I'll mention smogon) runs custom avatars.
Oh and I did leave for smogon during my four month ban. I only came back here because I know the culture here slightly better, and I have more online buddies here. Im slowly going to ditch SPPf though because so far smogon has proven to be a much more sensable and just forum compared to the blandness and childish aspects of serebii
I have been on the Net for 2 years(ish). I'm 11 now and I've been here since I was 9.
I been using the net by myself since 2004 and used it with my dad around 2001-2004 on a Bob the builder game (I was 3-5 then and dad mostly only let me watch/click on a mouse)

I remember using the internet back in 97/98 (can't remember) I used Netscape browser and Altavista search engine to look up **** about Dragonball Z (and to a lesser extent Pokemon and Ranma 1/2) Those were the days all those geocities pages, incorrect information and fake pictures. I remember someone saying the predecessor to Dragonball Z was Dragonballz. I ate that **** up. Everyone wanted to know everything they could about DBZ spoilers be damned. You could make some decent chump change selling printed out webpages of DBZ information.
I didn't really have full unmitigated internet access until the end of 2007, however. (due to either not having a computer or not having decent internet before then)
