I don't know him so can't say what his reasons are.
To be fair though, the site is supposed to be about wargaming, well sculpting and painting anyway.
The Pot is not supposed to be about that, its a periphery.
Problem is there's only one thread at all vibrant, (not true - the State of the Disunion thread as well) and because of not clearing the spam and nobody moving wargaming threads to other boards, absolutely everything gets bunged in the Sad Cunts thread.
There are frequent outbreaks of history, wargaming and fantasy source discussions but they are all in one mulch of mumbling about Bill.
If you look at what is actually going on in the SC thread, not much of it is really to do with Bill. His name is invoked as a joke now and then but unless he starts banning everyone or falling out with British wargaming companies most of the stuff is a general ramble.
Nobody starts unrelated general threads because they will be submerged in the Spam, so all in the SC thread it goes.
Do most people look at the other boards and post there at all? A few.
Not sure we can blame the spam for that - Pete clears most of that up, ta! But a wall of weird porn links can't encourage 'normal' wargamers to browse, return or join. Can it?
I know Condi or whatever he is calling himself this afternoon, has offered to be a mod and clear spam, hell I'd even do it if anyone would trust me (its okay I know the answer to that) but I'm sure someone said only Doc can give those permissions and I don't get the impression he is that bothered.
It certainly makes browsing the site difficult with family wandering about.
'What am I doing darling?' Nothing much. Wargaming. The underage donkey sex ad? A D&D spin off, trust me.'
