schild said:Oh comeon. That's not even reasonable. If it weren't for NeoGAFs hivemind assassins maneuvering through the interwab searching and acquiring interesting news - most of the time before anyone, this place would be one step above Gaia. But the news aspect of NeoGAF places it in the top echelon of gaming sites. As I've said before, the discourse here... leaves a lot to be desired.
Edit: Apologies for the backhanded compliment, but reality is a bitch.
The discourse here is at a considerably higher level than most other gaming forums. The issue is that since GAF is so popular, it will attract all types, including a lot of trolls and otherwise poor posters. It also attracts a lot of great posters. The ban-heavy moderation here combined with the delayed membership does a great deal in keeping out a lot of the FUD and bullshit found in other forums. Most people don't want to risk doing anything be banned when a lot have to wait quite a while for posting privileges.
