I think the overall IQ of the site has dropped, but not because of spelling. The substance and topic material has slipped a little because some of the good old contributors from way back have not been around here in ages for whatever reasons. It used to be that regular threads on here were chuck full of great info that rivaled actual articles on 6mmbr.com and others but now, many of those thread starters are gone. It's sad but part of life.
I think Eddie has the reason.

I used to love this site. Now I just check in every now and then to see if anything has changed. It takes to long to navigate on this site. I get tired of sitting here waiting on all the ads to pop up. I'm all for someone making money but all the ads have gotten ridiculous. Don't get me wrong, I know that it takes time, money and effort to make things like this site happen and someone should be rewarded for their efforts. But I think that a lot of this has driven away a lot of the knowledgeable people that were once on this site. It seems to me like LongRangeHunting.com has turned into a big marketing gimmick. I don't have a problem seeing Straight Shot Gunsmithing, Defensive Edge, APS, Berger, Nightforce and similar ads showing up because they do contribute their information and knowledge to the site and they helped make this site what it once was.
Well I'm going to get off my soap box now that I have vented. I feel so much better now.
P.S. I would like wish everyone a Happy New Year.
