I came back from a lengthy ban recently to find that the forum is mostly empty, at least in comparison to where it was prior to the ban. It's strange not to see a lot of the old names and faces making posts.
I suppose much of this silence can be attributed to COVID, but then I ask myself, surely that would mean people have more time to spend online? If people are inside more, why has there not been an increase in posting? Now of course people will say that no movies have come out, but I don't think much of the talk on here was about the movies of the now in the first place. Much of it was around movies that were coming down the pipe. So what else might be responsible for this reduction in activity? I can't be certain at the moment, but my gut tells me that the increased 'moderation' and locking of some of our most active threads (RIP Fan Boy Thread) have lead people to leave for pastures new, where they can discuss the topics they want in a liberal environment.
Or it could be that I'm totally wrong, and there's actually more activity now than ever before!
What do you think? Let me know!
