On the bright side, if one of us were female, it would be quite romantic. Aye, that was the bright side...

Yeah, the number of users has really dropped off. It'd help if those hundreds of StumbleUpon visitors hadn't seen an empty site...

It just wowed me that this is the first time only our two accounts have been active for 24 hours. At least some curious pal signed on and off now and then.

It must be the global recession =)

Of course I've pre-paid for the hosting for 2 years, and spent an excessive amount for a big database - you know, to cope with all the messages. It's most disappointing that St Ethan hasn't bothered to join us, given how much he insisted on this site being written and offered to gather money for it. Indeed, everyone else who said they wanted to move away from the spam haven too.

I've been to SBer less than a handful of times since you opened the site, Lee. I'll keep poking as time allows but the lack of participation usually means I'm not on here for long

Ultimately the site is missing people posting opinions. Things like web site links and so on are supposed to be the exception, and the focus on discussion. But at the same time there needs to be a mix of people to avoid everyone just agreeing with each other and not having anything to say. We'll have to start doing a best-of set of topic postings, maybe one a day. (-:

OK. I suppose it's cool to post interesting topics even if we don't actually debate them. Our responses would be of the "I concur" kind, and hence boring. I'll do my best to bring one interesting topic each day.

@Patofeo: no need to apologize, I brought this topic to point the obvious, not to complain. The obvious was "Discussionator: We're doing it wrong"

@Lee J Haywood: Aye, I always thought Ethan would be one of the most ardent supporters. The least I expected of him was not to mock the deserters. Oh well, that's how you know people, isn't it?

It's worth remembering that Google will direct people here more when their searches accidentally match our words of wisdom. For example, someone was looking for the name of a song which went with a video - they didn't get the answer, but at least they saw the site.

We should start a couple of opinions with "boobs" in it. I think the terms "Jennifer Lopez" or "Jessica Alba" still attract traffic.

SB is closing down November 11th. The thing is, Korinthian got us all hooked on sodahead, which is extremely addictive. I wish you guys were there.

Oi, how do you know? Is there a new blog post?

Um, yes there is. As spartane as ever. I'll go there on November 11, I owe it to properly say goodbye with a nice chat. http://soapboxxer.blogspot.com/2008/11/soapboxxer-closing.html
