You put this together nicely. Exactly.

Good posters, uh? It is true that there's less people around, but I would not call the ones who still use forums "left-overs". Discussion quality is still great and better than what you can get on social places.

That's because I keep getting dragged back. Any place I inhabit, the general IQ goes up about 39 points. Subsequently, the weak-minded die off and fritter away.
