Has the number of people who use this site gone up or down? I know for sure that the number of responses from the areas I try to follow has dropped dramatically in the last few months, and unfortunately, that makes the site less and less useful to me! Anyone else?

  1. Maybe the number of users hasn't changed much but the number of useful users has declined in my experience. But there are still some insightful posters. Wish there were more. Even as I type this I realize that there will be those who read this and say if you want better posts why don't you start with yourself?

      Actually I read your comment and wondered what you think of as a useful post.
      Then I started thinking about what I consider to be a worthwhile post.
      Still working on it.

      1. re: almond tree

        A useful post is something that says more than "is" or "is not." I find that too many threads to devolve into that basic argument. Tell me why. Not because. Don't give me the supposed Gertrude Stein philosophy test version.

        Hey, never knew that existed. Learned something today. Top 10 posters don't surprise me.
