I've only been here for a couple of years and while I recognize that online communities always basically go downhill as more people are added, I suspect there is another issue at play: startup fatigue.

Everyone and his mother's brother is launching a "like X but with Y" startup now. Unless yours is something really special right out of the gate, it just gets lost in the noise and is easy for the non-trolls to ignore, resulting in a situation where the only feedback is not helpful.
