This forum is too important to the education of the new users to allow these abusers the ability to skew reality to fit their own diseased paradigm.
It used to be too important. It is not linked from the official Bitcoin site. Give it time, other forums will be pulling first rank for "Bitcoin Forums"
I still like a lot of the older users on this forum, keeps me comin' back, but I think the newbies see the other options for Bitcoin communities that are maybe more focused toward the Bitcoin discussion they are looking for.
