I think this opinion basically sums up why it's gone.

i've been advocating to remove the flaming section for over a year now. i totally agree with dylan, in my posts which are now absent along with the entire section, i predicted that about 80% of the traffic would decrease but the quality of civil posts would increase and frankly thats all that matters here. theres no doubt its funny to read some of the threads but frankly people like dylan literally feed off of it and would be lost without it. his posts here pretty much corroborate this.

I appreciate that the flaming section can no longer be posted in, but I think it would be nice if we could view old threads in a read-only form. As it is, if you want to check anything out you've gotta use google's cache or something similar.

Fig's explanation makes sense.

If you really find pleasure in such things you can always make your own forum/website. I'm pretty sure the domain name "l4drama.com" is available.

Documenting a history of all l4d / l4d2 drama could keep you going for a long time.

This would be the way to go.

Initially the flaming section was intended to segregate the shitposting from the normal "productive" forums. Eventually it became clear that the levies don't always hold, and that even when they do, having a concentrated mass of shitposting just one click away from the rest of the community functions doesn't represent us very well.

For those people who have no use for l4dnation without the flaming section, I suppose you are welcome to find other things to do with your time.
