Why do people keep putting this site down...

Explained by JD...

This site is as good as most sites, with a membership of 95% of good members...hardly anyone is leaving ...we still have over 70 regular members who are active on most weeks, we would like more members ..but for anonymous members and the normal troublemakers who like to stick the knife in, this is a great site with great members...

I agree. Maybe clean out some of the trash and some of the regulars would come back. But I've seen quite a few sites that don't clean house once in a while fail after a bit. I'm hoping that this site will keep going as the good surely outweighs the bad.

The five percent of which you speak, and to whom rooster referred, make more noise and trouble than some can bare.
And they carry it to other sites, from what i know. Send ugly messages. That kind of thing has driven very good and active members into the shadows.

Anon posting is a cancer - if you don't want to put your tag to it, you don't get to play tag.

Carla, we have our differences, and you're right, you're pretty straight forward - articulate, but I've never read anything of yours that could be construed as threatening in any way.

No, i never threatened anyone. Not my style. But ive said things that were derogatory.

Im not so fragile that i need a moderator. Except with that fellow yasir. I said something about him. But the guy went off the rails. And....i said something when someone else was attacked.

It seems to me that some long term members come to know too much about each other. And when there is a disagreement, that knowledge is, at times, weaponized. I think that is low.

Because every opinion matters? (smile)

Why do people take the time to create a post stating this site sucks? Why don't they just quietly move along and do something else?

I'm guessing they're frustrated. Maybe their frustration is with Amirite, maybe not. I'd also guess that have nothing better to do.

Well I did take your word for it and started checking out featured posts, truly some new users have been popping up and old ones returning but on bozette's potd or others I see around 20-30 users, so Im really looking forward to seeing that recent post with 70 different users in it.

I'm not trying to oppose you as you seem to think, I'd be THRILLED to have a regular basis of 70 different men and woman participating in the polls here, I've seen the year old posts that were swarming with people and I want to see them again.

I'm not aware of anyone putting this site down, but it has been very slow around here lately. Very few questions are being asked as well. I'm hoping it's just because of the holidays fast approaching.

There are some very mean people on this site who do nothing but post bait posts to start fights. Fortunately I've blocked most of them. They are ruining the site, in my opinion.

I have wondered that for a long time now. I saw the post that you have spoke about with the "whole chicken little mentality that the sky is falling (site is dying)". Its the holiday season so naturally it is going to slow down a bit because people are traveling or have family visiting which should be common sense.

I don't think people realize that posting negative stuff like the site is dying all the time is really just hurting the site not helping it. Anyone just looking around is gonna see "oh people say it is dying, why waste my time". I don't know maybe making positive posts and comments about the site might draw in potential users. (think)

I honestly don't see a thing wrong. So what if a post only gets 10 comments...rather have that than 250 comments that mean not a darn thing than someone just wanting 15 seconds of fame. (ono)
