This is pretty upsetting. I remember back in '07 when this was a still very active and cool place. I would always check the forums updating myself on what "people" are wearing these days and always like the photos since they showed off the clothes as they would appear in person. And always leaving the place for the day, "You know what, I really do hope I can afford all these cool clothes you guys wear. $100+ for jeans is a lot, but damn you make it look so worth it.
The bans killed the site. When the cool people left, everyone else followed. What's the point of being on a forum where the people you came here for never showed up? It just got boring, from daily...ehem...hourly thread and reply creation, there was something new to read and eventually you got used to particular people...and just like that, banned.
