    The site has "degenerated into a worthless exchange of cynical backbiting and abuse by a small group of anonymous insider contributors whose bile is largely matched by their ignorance."

    He goes on: "It has become so juvenile and ill-informed that it is generally painful to read. It is the online equivalent of old-fashioned graffiti on the walls of toilet cubicles."

    The use of anonymous posts has led to this degeneration, he says.

    I agree with everything he says.
    I do too.

    It's why I registered.

    It's a pretty awesome CV in terms of the number of different types of roles in fairness. Back around the founding of the state you might have had similar breadth of experience, but nowadays, he is pretty much peerless.
