FWIW, I always thought Rambo's posts were pretty low-brow and mostly just background noise. At least in SWD, it seemed like that was the case. He was one of the guys who would accuse Brad of looking like a girl, for instance. Which -- and maybe sometimes he does -- but that's hardly taking the ball down the field. I find it laughable that anyone would follow him somewhere else.
In my limited time there (was banned after making zero posts) what I couldn't figure out is what purpose was it trying to serve. It already had most of the most prolific or most-defined personas in the non-clothing realm put into a forum that was ostensibly about clothes but seemed to focus almost exclusively on the non-clothing aspect.
There were a few posts where Rambo was asking essentially what new features were needed to get the site off the ground. As if more bells and whistles were the answer when in fact, as he so often (and frankly annoyingly) pointed out, new features were some of the biggest things that drove people away from SF.
What the forum (both) needs is stronger content--not more toys. And in his quest he explicitly banned SF's best dressed and well versed posters
(namely Manton and now me, I suppose). You can't get content when you want to pick and choose who you have in your private fucking clubhouse that you created in an attempt to feel validated/popular and you're certainly not going to have quality when you don't ask the best-of-the-best to join
