That is a load of rubbish, people are still skating that hasn't changed much. Blame Facebook to a degree, this isn't the only forum that I visit that has seen a big down turn in active members. Life changes, peoples priority changes etc etc. It has nothing to do with attitude.

This place was a lot of fun in the 'hard core days' - as Mike likes to call them. Everyone got some shit and gave it back and for the most part it was all in jest, know one got their noses bent out of shape because of it. You needed a thick skin but it was all survivable.

It only got nasty when some flippers and scammers turned up here and took advantage of decent members that would always help people out and we then Policed the forum ourselves and showed them the door. I will add that the people I am referring to came back again and again under different names and had to be booted and that created even more distrust. After those bastards got found out there was a certain distrust of any new members until they showed us they were good people. That's why new comers are not instantly trusted and why we created the BST Rules and the Intro section. 

If you don't bother to try and work your way in to the forum and take part a bit and just turn up to buy or sell something there is no trust, we might as well just dump everything on e-bay and say Fuck It. 

People were always decent with each other we were a big family that looked after our own.

Mike's theory that people were chased off so others got a better chance of buying the latest board is also complete bollocks, that never happened, we all fought to get our payments in first, know one got excluded, there were loads of people who just lurked in the background and bought stuff.

You are delusional if you think that skating is as popular as back in the 70's, 80s. Take a look at all of the skate shops that have folded-all of the skate parks that folded. And if you guys want to protect all of this stuff as you call it, then protect it! Protect it from who? someone wanting to get a piece of life they grew up with. You can spin it anyway you want, but the BS that goes on this site is just that-BS. If you want to promote that shit, go for it. Doesn't matter to me, I am done with this BS. Have fun my man with the dwindling attitudes on this site.

Tony is taking that position about chasing people off of here because although his tone is conciliatory now, he was one of the gang of fucking assholes running people off.

That's not saying everyone here was like that and even Tony wasn't like that all the time. I've seen the members here do some amazingly generous things for other members.  The good here has always outweighed the bad.  Tony has a lot of good points, but it's disingenuous at best to say that people weren't chased off of here.  Some by Wes, some by the moderators, and some by members being complete assholes.  There's a combination and denying it is what's "complete bullocks".

Don't doubt that at all! Usually those types of people have issues anyway. Hope you get what you are looking for here. There are actually a few people that will help you. Best way is to PM them to avoid guys like Tony-AKA Skull/Crossbones!

I never said I didn't give people shit.  But I never made it my mission in life to chase people away like you and your cocksucking gang did.  You tried that gang rape mentality with me when I first got here and I planted your ass in its place then and will do it again now if you want.  I still have the PM I sent you back then.

Why TonyB, you look like somebody just walked over your grave...
