Where is the passion?

The forum is so slow and quiet right now, no heat, no passion, no spices... Where are the flaming topics?

I used to see 4-5-8 pages of thread after one day and it doesnt go much more than 2-3 pages these days.

missing the ambiance

Re: Where is the passion?

I am one of those who follow closely the "Posts Per Day" indicator. Mine is declining steadily from 4.06 (last year) to 2.94 (now).
It's like loosing weight, you check regularly on the scale and when there is a temptation to post you think about the "calories" that will immediately move the scale indicator up.

Re: Where is the passion?

I think what's missing is the banter from the regulars, either amongst ourselves or with newbies (not in a bad way).

Re: Where is the passion?

People whining and whinging about the good old days is really starting to p*ss me off! Was it really that good - DB on his overly flamboyant high horse about something, Economisto with PMS, people bashing newbies, 22 yards trolling with impunity (sorry, my mistake, that still happens)!

Nil - either shut up about it or stay and improve it - but please, give it a rest!













(any good for ya?)

If you want a heated debate it has to be the bad way
