Lots of forum MIA's

Seem to be losing a lot of forum members. Have we become too "user friendly", too moderated, too........?
I think the enviroment is great, but obviously some don't like it.

Ditto that...

What he said !

I should get back to work. Actually I am experiencing a lull between trials. Things will get a lot busier in the next couple of months and then I won't be here so much. I am sure that the left side of the m4embership will enjoy that!

Some members have had their MBs "change hands" so they no longer need to visit this site...or at least not quite so often.

Others as previously stated have just gotten pretty busy. Relocations, travel, etc.

And yeah, with the harsh tone that some of these threads have taken as of late, some just choose to peruse the posts, but not interject, lest they become a unwitting target of personal e-mail "flames".

As for me, I have more than one workstation up at any time, so I can post and peruse at my leisure...even when busy!

Weekends are another matter...quality time with the family, so I'm usually dormant as far as this site goes...

MIA

And don't forget the most important reason we are MIA:

1) You are looking for some TLJ.
2) You are too busy enjoying TLJ.

I'm not gonna be posting much any more... too many people who just enjoy offending people. They seem to ruin the experience for me. It was fun while it lasted.

I can't understand why either, but I'm rather sick of it. When this board gets so low that people start criticizing your spelling, punctuation, grammar, or any other syntatical error, that's my cue to exit. This is not an english class. I do not expect others to demonstrate perfect grammar when they post, and I also don't expect people to nit-pick me when I make a mistake. This is not the only thing that I've grown sick of, but it's the straw that broke the camel's back.
