80% of the time I went to IMDb was because of the boards. If trolls were the issue, (and most everyone knew how to avoid them), there are simple filters over moderation. eBay’s discuss/help boards had a built-in censor, you couldn’t get your post to post with certain words. To this day I rarely type “crap” anymore because of that! Of course that went a little overboard and they had to correct it after Dick Van Dyke became **** Van ****! (Seriously!) The IMDb boards could be VERY helpful and informative, more often than not. A very bad move and their traffic will show that I guarantee.
