It does. Stalking has become a industry on the bbs for a few to try to silence those they disagree with. Not exactly a pleasant place if you hold an alternative view now. But we plod on.

It started in 1999. We're now nearly twenty years on and the world has changed in so many ways. It's no surprise it's different on here, too.

Years back, it seemed a more 'dangerous' place. The insults would fly and there seemed few limits to what was tolerated. Of course, the previous may be complete fantasy due to me struggling to remember what I did last week, let alone how a message board was in 2000, but that's how I think it was at least. In fact, maybe that's how it still is. Nurse, when does my reminiscences class begin?

There used to be things on the site like people posting social-type pictures in the gallery, BBS meet-ups at Christmas and the like. Those things don't seem to happen any longer.

The bottom-line is people have aged. I was 37 when I joined, 12 years off 25. Now I'm 12 years off 67. Younger people seem fewer in number here. Grumpy old men like me have multiplied. I often think of what the BBS will be in another 20 years, with lots of near octogenarians posting threads about the most durable Tena pants to get you through 90 minutes at Selhurst Park, the availability of Palace rollators and four-wheel-drive motobility scooters in the club colours.

It probably needs a major injection of new blood, but is new blood attracted to posting anything more than 140 characters nowadays?

I still find the BBS a great resource for all things Palace. The political stuff, I steer well clear of generally. And do I miss 'classics' of the past like Trolley? No, I don't.

There's more debate and generally i think more knowledgable posters about football and all the other stuff. But that means it's less silly and more intense

Very true. The bbs was a very friendly place. I am mostly a lurker these days oxo

As a poster from earlyish on, it has definitely changed and I have to say I think the biggest change has come in the last few (PREMIERSHIP) years.

There is either a new type of poster with an attitude, or fans have developed one that they are very entitled.

Absolutely zero patience. We had people moaning because Sky told them Loftus-Cheek was likely to sign within 24 hours and typical Palace didn't announce it for a good 28 hours the bastards! Perhaps it is a symptom more of the change of I WANT IT NOW media coverage… 24 hours Sky Sports News and being in the Premiership gives us much more focus.

I wouldn't trade it for anything, I am very much enjoying life in this division and the Championship doesn't hold a candle to it… but it definitely involves selling a part of your soul and brings a few demons with it.

But that's social media as a whole I suppose. Twitter used to be positively friendly. Now it's a cesspit.

We've lost a lot of good posters who simply couldn't be arsed and that's also a shame.
Yep. Social media and Internet access has made everyone so divisive nowadays and people can't accept others opinions usually without abuse and insults. The football stuff is generally good but the political threads become too painful

As others have posted, it's more a reflection of social media generally, though there is a touch of the modern football in places.

It's shame that discussion and debates becomes so polarized and abusive.

Not that we should take lessons from Chilean dwelling ***** like you.

Everything changes. If it had stayed the same, we'd all be bored with it. Nothing wrong with change. Although I miss some people who got banned or pissed off with it
