Seems quieter than ever before here.

Catch my drift?

I think you've answered your own question. Most people on here work at public schools so it's quiet at the weekend and on national holidays. I'm freelance so can be working/idle at any time. Though maybe a few people left around PPTgate.

The forum has certainly slowed down a few notches since the whole stealing everyone's content and pretending they didnt thing happened.

There are, however, fewer network time-outs.

It's slowing down not dying.  There are some newer upstart sites.  But, I'm not sure if they have overtaken this one.  Some have also gone back to Dave's for non job related chatting and job searches too.  The upstart are probably more related to actual teaching though.

The problem you have is that only the degenerates post. A lot of the casual posters with a bit of banter get fed up with the mods and leave. You also have to bear in mind that most provinces have their own Facebook groups that answer most things so why post here? Again that brings us back to the degenerates posting their dribble on here all day everyday. I mean, not everyone is into turning a mass shooting into a casual racism post and what not.

Wow, you are a sensitive person to complain about this in 2 different threads.

Got to stay on narrative, I suppose.

"a bit of banter" :undecided:

Usually the site slows down in terms of activity during long holidays and vacation periods. Most people I know that use the site, only use as a time killer, for lessons, or for news. These days many facebook groups have taken over the news portion, for the most part. That said, the groups I'm in aren't very active at all other than specific questions and big news.

I'm sure some folks have migrated to other sites after the implementation of subscriptions of course.

Another reason for the forum dying could be users publishing private messages in threads.

It's funny, you seem like the type of person to call someone a "snowflake," but it turns your whole world upset down when you insult another user in my inbox, and I tell them. If you don't want everyone to know something, don't put it on the Internet.

Have you tried doing yoga? You seem tense.  :wink:

Also, rule of civilized arguments: you lose all credibility and just seem hysteric when you start name calling.

Maybe we should move this discussion to PMs. I may post it though.

I don't argue with idiots. I'm sure you know the expression. You wanted me to say what I felt in public. So I'll reiterate, I think you're a ****.

And I think you're someone who's not happy with life, so you've decided to take out your frustrations online with a sense of anonymity to make people feel as miserable as you are.

But you shouldn't be miserable because this conversation has brought me joy.  :laugh: I don't even feel the desire to report you because I'm genuinely enjoying myself.

So you're a physcologist as well as a grass. Sweet. I don't think you'll have to worry about me reporting you. I'm not a grass.
