Am I the only one who thinks that SF SW&D is better than ever? There's more brands and more diversity than ever before, a lot of members have left but there's been a influx of new members also. I guess the trade off is that the forum might be more intimidating/less welcoming but IMO that's much better than stagnation.
yeah I prefer it now mostly. I am not sorry to see the withering of workwear, for one thing.
There has always been abuse and noob hazing even back in the day, mostly because it is good for cheap laughs but it also helps establish priority among the apes in the SF primate house. That is almost inevitable. When I get together with my friends we usually give each other a hard time in a good-natured way, so all this seems like normal behavior to me.
The main thing that is worse is the Huddler incompatibility with iOS. There is no excuse for that.
