The bitcoin forum used to be a place of lively discussion of political and economic theories and practices.  Now it has descended into a junk name-calling forum full of irrelevant and ridiculous topics, each topic full of irrelevant and ridiculous posts.  Can anyone suggest an alternative bitcoin forum for me to join?  Is there any?

It really is pretty terrible. There needs to be a invite-only/heavily moderated forum that gets rid of the morons.

Youre right. And I'm sorry for my part in that.

I think things had just gotten so tense and accusatory with everyone on edge about recent events of the hackerly/conspiratorial/no talent ass clown nature that some juvenile steam needed to be blown off....gallows humor, perhaps...

T-minus what now?

Changing things starts with you; Think of a useful, relevant, non-redundant topic and start a thread.
I started a thread ~12 hours ago that now has over 25 or 30 replies and last time I looked there was a great discussion with no trolls.

You could try bitcoinforums.net.  There may be others out there as well.

This forum needs to be removed from the bitcoin.org domain and moved to its own domain.  It shouldn't have any official sanction from the main site.  Let the various forums compete for users based on quality, rather than having a single poorly-run official forum.

"Devs" left this forum long ago... They cannot be expected to listen to all this noise.

Not true.  I just got a reply from Gavin in one of my more technical question-asking threads today.

Maybe reporting all the troll-threads and -posts would make things a bit better. Though I agree, even though I've only been on this board for a few weeks I too witnessed the upcoming of all the trolls and kiddies hoping to make a quick buck. I guess something like an ignore-function would also be nice so you don't get threads/posts displayed by people you ignore.

If you find anything I post useful feel free to help a poor little college student out:

Please yes, was saddened by it absence even more so by the rash of troll's and spammers as of late.
Completely agree with the OP.

You can help by thinking about the way you post, too. (Not referring to anyone in particular here.)

Think before posting. If you find someone's writings raising your blood pressure, back away from the keyboard. Do not write anything until you've calmed down. When you do reply, vet your responses for anything that could be considered offensive. Once you've written your posting, go through it, sentence by sentence, and prune all the barbs. There's always a neutral way to say whatever it is you want to say, and even if your counterpart is a bona fide troll, remaining civil and calm will soon rob them of mistakes to latch on to. Either the other will respond in a reasonable manner and your discussion will go somewhere, or they'll degenerate further into ad hominems and irrelevancies, at which point you can with good conscience discontinue any discussion.

If a discussion is truly going nowhere, withdraw from it. Offer no insult, just take your leave.

Selling out to advertisers shows you respect neither yourself nor the rest of us.

Theres many bitcoin forums you can choose one. Heres mine

www.tweetforum.com/bitcoin

twitter.com/bitcoinforum

I built a forum that connects to twitter and sends the users updates on every post, so they are always connected. I love this forum though , it's not perfect, but it really gets the job done.

Think before posting.

that's not going to do it.

most ideas regarding the bitcoin technology are usually either met with "keep your stinking hands of my bitcoins" or "go fork the blockchain and 'fork' yourself" to have your idea implemented.

this forum is about speculation instead of technology now and the attitude is very similar to other "investment" forums.
which is no surprise, as bitcoin is about speculation right now, as there is no economy accepting bitcoin to speak of.
