Hard to believe how active this website once was as compared to how it is now. The site traffic is lower than I've ever seen it and there are now commercial ads? Not good!

It has evolved! You're right, it is pretty dead most of the time. Donathan has gone straight...Well, maybe?

We have some other odd balls now.

The
Blame Netflix and Hulu partly for the decline. More and more people are cutting the cord with Netflix and Hulu, and therefore, less people are watching commercials, so less people visiting and ranting about commercials.
My name is Donathan, pronounced the same way you pronounce Jonathan, except with a D. :D $608 for her brother's scooter. Fair is fair my ass. Being tough on Public Access TV is priceless.

Hello DARK FATHER!

It's so nice to see you here again!  Some of the old regulars have left for what seems to be for good, although we get new members from time to time.  I've cut down my commercials viewing on TV tremendously because, as Donathan pointed out, I'm hooked up with Hulu and Netflix and rarely watch broadcasts OTA.  A lot of the ads I see are the ones posted here!

Hope all's well in your dark world.

Well, it didn't help that you'd been gone.  Wink
 
I've just been finding the site kinda boring and predictable.  Lots of opinions I've heard a million times.  Part of that is because I've been on the site 12 years or something like that.  I'm jaded, I guess.
 
Also, sometimes I wonder if the place has died because some members actually have.  I mean, where are Insanity and Papa Lazarou, for instance?  They just simply stopped posting.  Are they dead?

I would agree - boring and predictable for many...no matter how much you try and bring it back to life, it goes stale. That is what I heard from Tiz.

Oh well. I regret the absence of so many Revolutionaries, and Honor Rollers. I hope Jimbo will return. Good to see aka Ron, Thor DarkRealmStar and Pa are still here. I will visit more when my computer is back from the repair shop, and I no longer have to use my phone to post.

Wink...eh...no matter. It is a good enough topic I personally love seeing others notice the same and raising the same flag - I'll march with each and every one.
