    Remember when...

    I remember when there were a couple of pages of unread posts daily if not hourly.

    I haven't been on in days. Total unread? Eleven.

    Anyone have ideas as to why its been so slow the last couple of years? I have my opinion but guarantee it would be greeted by a smack down from the mods.

    Well.. the trolls got banned, even the LEPRs got tired of arguing with each other. Figure 8's anyone?

    I remember when the "game" threads got a lot of action: haiku, person above, etc

    Personally, I troll on all forums far more than I post now.
    I still make a runny one now and then, but the goo is good on ice cream.

    We now all know everything, so there is no need to discuss. We even know what others are going to say. It's disturbing.

    I know exactly why a few certain people don't post here often anymore, but, like LDS's opinion, this explanation would be frowned upon.

    I know I post less frequently than I used to because I've been busy and/or tired because of my work schedule. I had also slowed down my activity when Tapatalk wasn't playing nice with the forum; it couldn't keep track of new posts, so it was more difficult to follow discussions. The short winter days don't help either. I'm sure I'll be posting a bit more for a while now, though. Tapatalk is working correctly, and I'm getting some of the work stress under control. Now to convince everyone to post more...

    Well, posting your opinions that others don't agree with is not a bad thing. It gets the blood circulating again. But you both know how to do it without the ban-hammer. Have at it!

    Um... Let's see... Some members have told me that they feel like some people in a role of authority on a certain website treated them like children (being condescending and scolding over silly things). As a group of adults, they felt that such behavior was not needed, and so they don't visit that website much anymore. I won't name the website, and I won't name names...
