This place is kinda dead, I mean its not dead dead but its once mighty stream of diverse users is now but a trickle and there isn't the same kind of mental diversity that was once here. Its not anyone's fault here. Forums are just a thing of the past, replaced by reddit and instagram etc. Younger people don't even know what these are. Even the most busy forums like bodybuilding.com are nothing of what they once were. And it kinda sucks because those other places do very little to have an actual discussion, they become hug boxes of like minded only people. There are no debates beyond 24 hours when a thread disappears of a subs front page. When the internet became more accessible (2006, but really more 2009 when the iPhone was switching from status symbol to free with your monthly plan) it became less interesting. People wanted to control it more, what you see what you hear what you are allowed to talk about. The Wild West days are over but its not civilized its subdued. Its not a better place but a worse one, where you data is analyzed and adds are targeted specifically to you. They have your search history, your contacts, your friends and even your DNA if you did something like 23andMe. It was fun while it lasted.
