    This place is dead. And, Christmas isn't the reason.

    Lots of stuff in the news, and barely any conversation.

    Well, where did everybody go? Is there an alternate site?

    Well, yes, but it's deader than here.

    Sorry, been away for awhile. If we're going to be honest about why politics-only didn't work, we should admit that the feuds did not contain themselves to that area. Posters were incapable of controlling themselves. Their fights spilled over into everywhere else. I supported the idea of a politics-only section, because it was my hope I could avoid the idiocy -- and so could anyone else who wanted to. That utopia did not happen. Be honest about that.

    As for the site's traffic being down (and I don't know if that's true), boom, you are as much responsible for that as anyone. You happily drove people away.

    Which begs the question....if the discussion isn't happening here...and that place where you're never out of place (heh heh) isn't thriving....where is the new Jeers?

    Walt, interesting read. Thank you for the link.
    Nobody likes ads, and I don't want to take food off anyone's table. I use Ad Blocker for privacy purposes.
    Without going into detail it is in my own financial interest not to throw money down Google's fat maw.
    I also don't wish to dispatch info for every site I visit to freaking Facebook.
    I know an admin of a bigger site than this ever was, and it's my understanding his profit was nothing substantial- beer and book money.
    Which is fine- I could always use that myself.

    I wonder if Eddie has any clue how much that amuses me.

    I'm sure. History indicates how well you handle adversity on these boards.

    You think finding out that little coward is so obsessed with me that he did that is adversity? It was a gift that never stops making me smile.

    How'd you become a "well-known member"?

    Not sure. If you listen to Elliot, I guess it should read "notorious member". Maybe that's what they meant to do. :cool:
