I spend time on Facebook keeping up with my friends. But I come to TMF if I want information from or discussion with a larger and more diverse group. Facebook doesn't work well for group discussions.

I don't post on this board as much because I haven't been playing much lately, and when I do play I don't really have questions about what happened. I know why I lost a hand and what I did wrong, if anything. Are there a lot of pieces I'm missing? No doubt. But it's not important right now.

And, honestly, JCoC has made this an unpleasant place to be. I can't have a conversation with my friends without him getting in the middle of it. And even with him on ignore, I see the responses my friends make. And then I'm tempted to say something to him. And it's just talking to a wall. I've had some knock-down fights with some of the people here, and gotten very angry and frustrated. Hitting him is like hitting a pillow: it just tires you and makes no lasting impression.

As far as general volume on the boards, I've noticed that Best Of posts have fewer rec's than in the past - I'd say probably half. I think that's probably a good indicator of general traffic. I'd also say that the cause is as much the stock market as anything else. When I joined TMF I did so for investment advice. The boards were an incidental detour. Not many people are looking for stock info right now - and there are many more places to get it than there used to be.

Random ramblings. Interesting subject.
