When I joined a few years ago, SB.com had a good mix of people and a very active community. Since then, just about everyone that made that place fun moved on and all that's left are a few people turning every thread into a cyber orgy within five posts of the OP.
Not that that's necessarily a bad thing, but when it's the ONLY thing, it gets old. I'm hoping V3 brings new life to SB.com. I really miss the politiks section.
