GameFAQs is trying to eliminate the power of the all Lufia fans (not just fan boys). I don't know their evil plot but if it is grave enough to destroy an already dead fan base then...

Wait, there is still a fan base. Then that means my plan to bring back Lufia still has a chance (for now).

DAMN YOU GAMEFAQS!!! YOU SHALL NOT HINDER MY DREAMS!!!

*digs up horse corpse, proceeds to beat with shovel*

Most of the games I'd been serious about talking to other fans with, I'd always preferred to find a game-specific forum. Never on GameFAQs; that place is only good for random drive-by "i like this game too" kind of posts. Lurk, poast, move on. If you're lucky you'll find a link to a fan forum where the people are actually interested in the game.

GameFAQs boards are usually populated by 5% hardcore leet players who think they own the board and are above moderation rules (see the PSX FFT board for classic textbook example), 90% casual players who stopped by to see if there's anything of worth to read, and the remaining 5% are professional trolls who drift from board to board like locusts.

Another point against them is that they answer to a corporate overlord. This in itself tells you there will be censorship - because they need to cover their asses in case companies with rabid lawyers screw them over for allowing players to talk about stuff like illegally trading ISOs/ROMs. Can't really blame them for having to toe the line.

Of course, it's fine to blame them for crappy, biased, clueless, and randomly enforced moderation. Hell, I know nothing about the origins of the conflict mentioned earlier in this thread, yet reading the various posts I understood the situation clearly (English isn't even my first freaking language) - and the stupidity of the mod response is facepalm worthy.
I have asked for so little! Anyone would think that I have asked you to sacrifice your entire family! And yet, in Slaanesh's boundless and pleasing mercy, I have asked only for your daughters.

Yup. Even the topic Starry made, where he asked to help me, got deleted. Trying to get people to move here, which sometimes seems to work (;))... it's not even funny how idiotic the mods there are.
