What do you mean like this before? with all the trolling? I mean there was some but not like it is now. I remember in the WDYWT thread you would actually get banned for flaming a person, but now its not like that. HB is full of everyone trying ridiculously too hard to be funny by trolling.

oh look another john hate thread, wtf is ur problem op?the thing about john is, he doesnt hurt other peoples feelings ever. He puts himself in the spotlight and lets people get away with hurting his feelings, you never see john lamone pulling a london on people. the only time he ever pulled a london was on london himself. Thats why i think u need to back the fuck off john, dude is a soft spoken little baybay, he definately doesnt deserve hate mentions. I know that for certain

Agreed. Most of these trolls just arent funny. I wouldn't mind if trolls were actually funny and gave me a good laugh but now.... im literally just have a stone face when I read some stupid thread by an unfunny troll.

If you were referring to me then I meant I doubt people before didn't complain about HB falling off before I joined

It started falling off the same time Streetwear did. But since the new members do nothing but troll and try to be funny its gotten worse.

I'm just sick of all it. I like coming on here and having fun, but people do take the trolling too far. I wouldn't blame strictly new members, nor would I blame older ones because I feel it's a little of everyone. And you can't just piss and moan and blame the mods.
 
I do have to agree that the off topic section is just slowly dying, and is drowning in trolls. But to say that HB in itself is dying is false. The arts section really cool, a lot of different members who don't post in the bullshit that is off-topic, same could be said for a few of the other sections of HB. It isn't all dying, just some of it is. 

I prefer carcinogens to endorphins.

Almost all of the subsections besides Off-Topics & the Fashion Brands (Mainly due to the Supreme thread) are pretty devoid of trolling.

I'm I've seen a little of it in a few sections. But you're right. And it sucks, because the Off-Topic could/can be a really good sub-section.

Niggas thought fearitself was some epicly hilarious shit at the time but now you see that sort of shit ever day, not to mention how engrained the standard of style has become on here so dudes just come on here dressed like dickheads until they get bullied into conforming to whatever the peanut gallery tells them.

Idk, i still got mad love for HB but i totally understand why so many niggas who actually have something to contribute dont even bother wasting their time or energy. Doesnt seem to be much to do about it tho, its just the ebb and flow, either accept it or leave
pretty spot on

I feel like if you joined in 2012 and have over a thousand post, you're not really contributing anything... And when I come on and there's like 5 threads saying, I could beat all of you in a fight, it dissuades me from looking at the rest of them. But I wouldn't say that you never get serious responses because sometimes there are some legitimately thought out comments.

And plenty of people do just fine without cheese on their hamburgers.  You're not too good with the analogies. I think I know what you're trying to say, but you didn't quite get there. 

yeah im highkey pounding at my keyboard rn getting heated, but its really nothing we can do about it razz So how was your day today?

That's the thing though, you're not a troll. Even with you excellent quality hate, you're a damn good poster.   Other dudes just straight lack creativity and go the easy route to rustle jimmies.

 I guess part of the problem is that niggas suck at spotting trolls or they love feeding trolls.  Trolls feed on attention.  Ignore them and they'll change direction. Either they'll be cool or get more creative with the trolling. Either way it's a win.
