I'm on occasional poster and intermittent lurker and have always found the board and members extremely helpful. I am increasing having trouble following matters and figured I'd just be blunt and say "huh?".
I see the format has changed and things seem, IMO, much more scattered than before. I see many posts & threads about "goons", but have no idea what people are talking about. Also, posts and opinions seem "scattered" and less cohesive. I used to have a handle on what was good, but am having a far harder time figuring out what is what and who is who. Maybe of the threads seem to routinely devolve into personal issues and often "inside jokes" between a few, which makes reading them awkward and time consuming.
I'd like to update my older LE30 units installed in my 2 vehicles, but have no clue what is or is not good. I've read the threads here, but there is no real consensus, leaving me to wait for the next GOL round of testing. Many posts say "X" unit is great and with great customer service, just to be follows by how much (insert name of rep/company) they stink.
In short, is there a Rosetta Stone to all this? I don't want to offend anyone, but cannot help but notice that this board is much more scattered and harder to follow than before.
