I have a boatload of favorite boards....so many of them only have a post from time to time. All these boards and so few posts.

So, I was just wondering if yall have the same situation. Or do you just have a few favs to check on each day?

Where have all the posters gone....

The question is how long this can last if they aren't doing anything to increase the community.

AC *has seen a severe drop off in posting in the last year*

I haven't COUNTED all of them, but I do hafta to scroll down about another screen's worth to view them all.


I've been reluctant to "thin the herd" & as a result about half of my Fav Boards are CLOSED. Most of those were from Speaker's Corner {which has NOT been included in the TMF board directory for about a DECADE!!!!} that folder is now a pencil shadow off its former self!

AND, TMF has chosen [from the novel "1984" tradition of] re-writing history by collecting/listing the CLOSED Speaker's Corner boards as being in the 13 Steps to Investing Foolishly folder, a folder they repurposed SPECIFICALLY for collecting CLOSED boards.


e.g. https://boards.fool.com/abolish-the-markets-114619.aspx?mid=...


Click on the 13 Steps to Investing Foolishly folder & you get:


We're sorry, but somehow you have accessed a link to the Discussion Boards that does not work properly.


IT PURPOSELY doesn't work. PERIOD.

TMF has become a real SLACKER on fixing their board stuff too. "Replies to your Posts" being an ongoing malady.

I do feel so encouraged when errors are recognized to the point where actuated
apologies are able to be created and programmed to respond.

Shows TMF management is not lazy - they just do not care to bother.

One of the ways to detect a true bureaucracy is to detect an exorbitant amount of
effort taken to avoid fixing basic problems.

Soon afterwards there are awards presented to people who complete the workarounds
that successfully avoid fixing problems.

Reminiscent of the dicey situation at my office where bureaucracy rules the roost 97% of the time !!

That seems a "non sequitur" statement.


I would say they are extremely lazy; they are willing to tolerate laziness in their organization, and as long as the paying-parts of TMF making a profit they don't care what the H3LL users think of their freebie boards.

I was VERY surprised that they listened when WE said, "Bring back HURL."

TMF has no pride of invention/ownership/maintenance of the freebie boards.
