It's such a shame, what's gradually happened here.
Especially when it would've been so easy to avoid it, as I see so many members have previously mentioned,
BabyPips could and should be both a valueable forum and resource, and a profitable business.
I know there's been a huge loss of members since I used to post here a few years ago, and I know why.
Anyone who looks knows why.
Unfortunately it comes across as confrontation, and criticism, to make these comments, but in truth members just get either very disappointed or even angry both generally at the lack of moderation and more specifically at the frankly weird policies that harm the site so much.
Old members increasingly go.
Promoters and no-value posters increasingly arrive because nobody else lets them in.
The problems therefore continue and deepen and reinforce themselves.
And as long as there's an attitude typified by "We don't remove pasted-in posts as we want the member to have the opportunity to change them", the traffic will continue to fall and the value here will continue to decline.
That's only one small problem but it really does typify the attitude that has produced all the other problems, too.
Such a pity.
