I had a really long response to this, but it was kind of mean, so I decided against posting most of it.
The two things I will say are:
1) I'm glad we have the OT forum, because otherwise all this crap would be poisoning the genforum. I remember before we had the OT forum, and it was getting hard to sift through the crap to find the good stuff. Now there's a dedicated place for people to type out their mindfarts.
2) The OT forum COULD be a place for us to share funny stories, actually discuss politics, post cool motorcycles/cars, talk about other interests/hobbies we have, ask for advice about non-moped things, and generally learn/talk about whatever the hell we wanted. But instead it is ... what it is. Some of what I mentioned already goes on, but there's also a lot of "make 20 posts that all have the same words in the title" and "post 3 lines of my uninformed political opinions just to be a troll" and "lol-poop-butts-farts-omg!" and so forth. Seriously, go through the posts on the first page and mentally categorize them. About half are pointless, stupid, or unnecessary. If we could get rid of that half the posts, this wouldn't be such a bad place. I don't know how you'd get rid of that half without rules and increased moderation though, and I'm sure there'd be a big uproar from people not wanting their "free speech" (aka: their right to post stupid stuff) to be stifled.
Whatever though. As has been said, if you don't like it, don't click on it. Usually I don't come over here unless I'm realllllly bored, and even then, I try not to stick around for long. I'm still glad we've managed to contain the infection to this section of the website.
