I quit going after they more or less harbored a pedophile.  I'll be happy to watch it burn.

It was still a hangout for thousands.
This happened quickly enough that many just lost touch with each other.

Also, there was a long-running mental health assistance thread which probably saved some lives over the years.

I get the 'forum war' and denouncing the big name behind it, but it's not like it was 100% evil.

This. It also usually stomped down on bigotry and little tolerance for this nazi bullshit that's becoming too prevalent, but Evilore was a problem and that's become increasingly obvious, especially after a ban wave in the face of questioning moderation... nevermind this unwanted advance.

Neogaf used to be alright back in 2010/2011, I remember laughing hard at the Dragon Age 2 thread. Later it started to gather mindless fanboys and the last time I visited, sometime around '14, members  had this annoying holier-than-thou attitude.

Let the place crash and burn.

Read a perfect description of NeoGAF earlier today as a "cesspool of manchildren desperately pretending that they're an integral part of the game industry."

You know some of us were there too, right?

The mods harbored a pedophile. They were nuking threads about it and banning people who brought it up. You may have enjoyed your time there (and that's totally ok) but I have trouble sympathizing for anyone related to the site.

It seemed to me that this caught staff by surprise and he was immediately banned for good. It was probably more that they didn't want him talked about and that makes sense though there probably should have been a pinned story acknowledging what happened.
