I'm GMT-5, but I think it's most fair to keep the time GMT. It's easier for me to subtract 5 hours from each post time (at GMT) than for me to figure out the difference between (GMT+x) and my time zone, and then add or subtract the difference to find the time that it was posted at relative to my time zone.

Even if the board timezone was changed to my timezone, I'd hate to be in the position of someone who has to go through extra calculations to figure out the time something was posted relative to its timezone.

-6. Central.

Always hated being on the east coast because when your team goes on a West Coast road trip, the games all start at 10pm. 9pm is a little easier to handle.
On a long enough time line, the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.
