Are they gone? I think they still post every few days.

They don't get free PS4s like GStan, so they have less incentive.

I haven't went anywhere. Just don't have that much time to spend on forums these days. But that doesn't stop me, I always check in when I can.

I bet Apoppin would be very nice to you BoFox and Ocre.

His forums look largely like a collection of conversations between Apoppin and Sick Beast, and that isn't exactly the "bigger than Google, worldwide meeting place" he had envisioned.

It's mostly two guys chatting about a. what NVIDIA did for Apoppin this week b. how huge BTR is going to be.

LOL- I told Apoppin years ago when he was part of starting ABT that tech forums are dead, most of the people who post on them are paid to do so. The golden age of tech forums has waned into a latter day rust belt, the old empire fallen into a shabby viral marketing scam with a couple old ghosts like us coming to it because it's a habit.

Tech forums are experiencing what newspapers experienced.

That is why places like AT have to protect the shills. The only money left is ad money paid for with the protection of marketeers. Used to be independent thought was the draw of such forums, now they have all sold out for jobs and/or cash.

Like most things in life, follow the money.

Maybe if you all would join me in kicking in $30 for the site, it wouldn't have to be gone forever?

Dave/Rollo/SB/Ocre/Bofox/SteelCrysis/GStan- that would be $210 and probably pay the hosting here for a year.

Why, so I can watch you argue back and forth with Greg? Because unfortunately that is all that this forum has left any more, aside from what SteelCrysis provides. Bofox and ocre are both long gone. Dave rarely posts any more. I can see why he would shut it down. Why should he pay to watch you two argue?

I will definitely miss ABT but I'm going to be the last one to subsidize the place. The last thing I'm going to do is pay to watch you argue with your nonsense.

Could be this place has been on borrowed time since the traitor Apoppin stabbed Dave in the back and left him high and dry without his content.

I didn't see you stepping up to fix the site or write articles for free. Because that's what apoppin did for years. All you have ever done is argue with gstanford.

I've done far more than argue with an ignorant troll here as my post history will attest, and I've been a moderator.

No I haven't written articles/content for the site - I'm not a journalist, have no desire to become one and didn't join ABT with that sort of thing in mind.

I don't pimp sensational headline links or post links in general without explaining my position on what the link contains either....

I don't have the knowledge to fix the site, my tech skills are totally unrelated to web site maintenance. I'm not a writer.

I've used the site like a tech forum, largely posting my thoughts on tech and tech companies.

I have accounts on all the big sites and post occasionally, but I can't post as Rollo.

Like GStan says, they all banned me for being mean to poor, innocent guys who did nothing to me, like GStan. Rolleyes

Oh poor misunderstood and unfairly picked on Trollo!

Funnily enough I can post as gstanford anywhere I like (except maybe anandtech & B3D), never tried since they showed me the door, no desire to ever return there.

Must be something about you or your behavior off the forums with the Rollo username. Don't suppose you'd care to share your current forum handles - I'm sure admins all over the web would love to know (and I'd love to tell them).

Here, I just had this come flying out my monitor, I think it's yours.

Meh. What's the use?

Trolls gotta troll.

GStan, if there is one thing I won't miss if Dave shuts down ABT, it's seeing your trolling.

You're just a singularly disagreeable person.

BoFox is suspected dead, but not confirmed. Ocre posts every now and then, his last post was almost 2 weeks ago.

Huh?! Who suspects BoFox of being dead? Other posters on other forums or something? He has at least 5 kids, moved house relatively recently and is religiously active. He's probably just too busy to post.

I think it's a little more likely he just gave up on the forum.

There's not a lot going on here since you, Apoppin, and GStan went rogue. This is about the last forum I visit when I'm online, just not much to read other than SCs updates.

Guess I was wrong.

I think Bofox left for three reasons:

1. I don't think he liked me aping his "You guys have a cock! Come back to ABT and be roosting cockatiels!" post. To which I would say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and that it was an unusual phallic centric writing style that was fun to recreate.

2. There's not a lot going on here since you, GStan, and Apoppin flew the coop and basically created two forums, half the size.

3. He probably got tired of all the bickering here.

Yes, but he also left ATF around the same time as he left here. I really hope something didn't happen to the guy. He is/was a genuinely nice person. We had some good times at ABT.

If any of you are still members at AT, why not PM BoFox and if he logs in there he may respond?

Then you would know if he's OK.

Beats me.

At first I was going to purge him as a spammer, but stopped because posting three smileys isn't spamming.

Maybe it's BoFox, come back to prank on me, or let us know he's OK?
