I came over here after ~8 years on Sun's forums, because I just couldn't stand how badly-managed the software and environment there has become. Sun's approach is very ANTI community. The explicitly-stated goal of the forum staff is for people to visit, ask their questions, and leave. Period. Bleah.

The Sun forum was doomed from the moment they got rid of the Water Cooler. After that it was just a matter of time. To be honest it surprised me how long the community feel managed to hang on there without the WC, but it seems to have (sadly) begun to wind up now. I guess what Sun haven't realised is that a lot of the people who post on a forum come for the community aspect as well as the learning/helping aspect.
Still, maybe it will be good in that more people will come and contribute to Javaranch.
