Found this from a long time ago...I think back from the I-Club/Nasioc split...

THE NATURAL LIFE CYCLE OF A MESSAGE BOARD
Every message board seems to go through the same cycle:

1. Initial enthusiasm (people introduce themselves, and gush a lot about how wonderful it is to find kindred souls).

2. Evangelism (people moan about how few folks are posting to the message board, and brainstorm recruitment strategies).

3. Growth (more and more people join, more and more lengthy threads develop, occasional off-topic threads pop up)

4. Community (lots of threads, some more relevant than others; lots of information and advice is exchanged; experts help other experts as well as less experienced colleagues; friendships develop; people tease each other; newcomers are welcomed with generosity and patience; everyone---newbie and expert alike---feels comfortable asking questions, suggesting answers, and sharing opinions)

5. Discomfort with diversity (the number of messages increases dramatically; not every thread is fascinating to every reader; people start complaining about the signal-to-noise ratio; person 1 threatens to quit if *other* people don't follow board rules; person 2 agrees with person 1; person 3 tells 1 & 2 to lighten up; more bandwidth is wasted complaining about off-topic threads than is used for the threads themselves; everyone gets annoyed)

6a. Smug complacency and stagnation (the purists flame everyone who asks an 'old' question or responds with humor to a serious post; newbies are rebuffed; traffic drops to a doze-producing level of a few minor issues; all interesting discussions happen by private email and are limited to a few participants; the purists spend lots of time self-righteously congratulating each other on keeping off-topic threads off the message board)

OR

6b. Maturity (a few people quit in a huff; the rest of the participants stay near stage 4, with stage 5 popping up briefly every few weeks; many people wear out their second or third 'delete' key, but the message board lives contentedly ever after)
Safe to say; it boucnes around between stage 5 and 6a depending on what forum you're in. It wasn't always this way though...

does "the purists spend lots of time self-righteously congratulating each other on keeping off-topic threads off the message board" include power-drunk mods?

Forgot I started this. Good call stinky. Let some noob go into OT. It's like they are the front line of the local football team and they want to jam a kid in the locker.

The Facebook page I am a part of has al the same pitfalls. There is no giant douchebag feat called OT. But who knows as people get older it may happen. It's more about keeping the stance vs in check.

I'm not a member of any Subaru facebook groups, but I don't like people either. So NASIOC is perfect for me. Jerks.

Maybe the fact that Subaru is leaning the new models in a different direction, and older models that this forum was based around are dying off slowly but surely.
