I've seen this argument over and over again, and it still doesn't make sense to me: the Harbor drives people away from the MI forums.
When you guys visit a new website and look up the forums, do you actually make some kind of judgement call as to whether or not the topics posted are good enough for you? If you see that the off-topic forum has 'welcome back' and 'I'm leaving' threads, do you actually say to yourself, 'Well, this place is beneath me--I'm off to Snob.com?'
If I visit a new forum for the first time, and find it to be filled with nothing but vacuous crap, then yes, I'll go find another forum. What part of this are you having trouble understanding?
