RE: The triond forum closure.
I woke up this morning to find the triond forum had been shut down. Triond’s reasoning for this was that the forum had drifted away from its intended purpose. I actually think the forum closure was beneficial, because the truth of the matter is that the forum had degenerated into a platform for spammers gone wild, and that was ruining the triond experience at large.
It is however,unfortunate, that some in triond’s community were too immature to keep it together. I’m sure that triond had noble intentions when they created the forum, and as such I cannot blame the creators for the forum’s demise.
I look forward to growth in the triond community, and lessons learned.
I cheer for triond’s decision to close the forum, but I hope it doesn’t have to be permanent. I hope the spammers realize they are the bad apples that spoiled things for the rest of us, and that they have soul enough to care.
