Where have all the posters gone?
There doesn't seem to be to much activity on this website in comparison to the past. I am curious where are people going these days to post their opinions on events impacting their daily lives. There is an important story about the quality of the water and there hasn't been one post about the subject. Five years ago there would have been at least 20 opinions other subject.
Good question, this site was helpful when we were looking to buy a home just about 5 years ago. I’ve also enjoyed the knowledgeable and civil discussions about the community. Too much of social media has become emotional and polarized, significantly reducing any value. Hopefully we’re just seeing a slow period of activity.
People are going to Facebook first to get information about moving.
I noticed a lot less posting after the format change to the site. And also when Old Tart stopped contributing. But I agree, a lot of people are just using other formats where there is more traffic and participants in general like Facebook. I do miss the discussions we had here in the past. The more in depth responses from people of all islands I always found interesting.
I still pop in for a look most mornings. But, there's rarely anything to see anymore. It was so much more interesting when people were chatting about a wide variety of topics.
Its kind of like talk radio. Its only interesting if people are disagreeing.
