I closed down the WFMU Message Board yesterday, after seven years of posts that were at turns informative, infuriating, fascinating, perplexing and mundane. But as trolls, sock puppets and spambots took over, WFMU staff and listeners fled from the space and in the end, as Listener Paul put it, "It wasn't even stupid anymore." As overdue as the closing of the board was, it made me sad anyway.
So until we figure out the best way to re-launch an open online forum for listeners, I will throw up an open post on the blog from time to time. Feel free to post a comment on the question at hand or on any other topic related to WFMU, it's music, programming, radio or FMU culture.
Today's question: What's your suggestion for revamping the WFMU Message Board or alternatively, is there some other online forum we should try instead?
