I think you'll find the decline of Irem was due to the Tsunami in 2011. It acted as a catalyst event for the following:
*One of their AA titles being cancelled indefinitely (so wasted budget and resources).
*Affected their workforce.
*The division of their workforce into the splinter company which is mostly made up of the old Irem team (Granzella).
*Due to intellectual properties by the old workforce, Irem having to remove all the content from Home.
Well honestly, I wasn't around when the decline started so, didn';t witness it first-hand, but did witness the troll fest and heard rumours it contributed to the decline. Just didn't fancy that happening at Hudson

Yeah the number of quality users visiting the space went into decline, that much is also true

Think I need to see this for myself.
i was thinking the same when i read this,surely its not as bad as its being made out to be
It is sometimes, spotted 2 or 3 peeps (naming no names as I am unsure if they're trouble or just swept up in it) all going around starting fights for no reason, all arguing, and actually getting away with typing obscenety variations. Normally I'd turn my chat off, but a friend was there and waned to talk, so I had to deal with seeing that and actually got a bit inadvertantly swept up in it meself for no bleeding reason, tried to talk it out calmly but they was having none of it. So was glad to leave today, never been like that before as I really enjoy the Dolphy Races.

Hang around there towards tea time (5pm-ish UK time) and you'll see enough
LOL thats prime time for trouble in pretty much any space though, the kids are in from school at that time and are all running around giving it all 'yo mommas this' and 'suck my that'. If you dont want to see vulgarity its probably best to avoid home between 4-10PM on a week night OR see it for what it is: online idiots that are bored and 9 times out of 10 REALLY should be doing their (English?) homework. Dont get involved, its only inarticulate words anyway.

Get over it, whining on here expecting moderator intervention has almost as much effect as talking to a distant concrete wall (only difference is the sound of the echo).
Try pressing SELECT & then report the 2 of them & before the idiots out there say "IT DOESN'T WORK"(knowing only too well it does, but trying to throw you off). l've been banned in the past for foolishly defending myself so it does work. If in doubt about it why not join in the arguments (no holds barred) & see for yourselves the consequences?
Having said that, the two of them have more id's than is healthy, & more dolphies than the rest of us combined (slight exaggeration). They also have access to the two "private" servers l also have (& possibly more as well?) so no hiding there either. So banning them only forces an id switch.
Personally speaking, (& as Elven has already said,) its easier to press "IGNORE" or avoid the space altogether.
Once you acquire all rewards, skins & effects what's the incentive? Boredom perhaps? An hour minimum to race 3 dolphies + failed entries = waste of free time imho.
*SAD CONFESSION* I once wasted 8 freaking hours there (private servers quickly saved after) before l raced all 3 dolphies due to failed entries back in the days of 2 races per hour. Sad, true, & NEVER AGAIN!!!
Surely you can make a brew while you wait & check back every 20 mins to see your progress if you must get your Hudson "fix"???
Alternatively, if you can't stand the heat.... Find another home quest, there's more to home than Hudson
Soooo... in short ,...... "DEAL WITH IT!!!!"
