I doubt for one reason that has 2 significant impacts.
The reason being is voting is off.
 
The hamsters got laxed from enforcing the rules as the system was somewhat self maintaining. If somewhat broke the forum rules they were voted into oblivion. This meant it did not even need to be monitored as when there was a breach it was made an example of by the community. That is no longer happening yet the hamsters are likely still laxed on this monitoring aspect.
 
The other impact from voting is the hamsters have more pressing things to attend to. The most recent feedback is that they are trying to correct it. That was quite a wile ago. My guess is that hamster wheel is spinning with some crazy centripetal force and if they step off they will likely fly out crashing the system. In other words, they need to stay focused and do not have time to deal with minor infractions with in forums. In particular the soap box.
Computers have been intelligent for a long time now. It just so happens that the program writers are about as effective as a room full of monkeys trying to crank out a copy of Hamlet.
