I've been wondering at the new members that just show up and leave pretty much right after their first post. Did they realize how cancer it was that quickly or were they never planning to stay from the start? I'm really curious.

Maybe they saw that the handful of people who actually post on a regular basis have been here for years and have thousands of posts and a camaraderie amongst one another, and they felt scared to join the mix in any relevant manner.

Or maybe they saw people like Batty, OH, elph and froundland being assholes to everyone, and didn't want to risk the abuse.

This place was SUPER welcoming when I joined in 2004. Everyone was friendly, for the most part. If you acted like a bully or an asshole, you weren't glorified and imitated like nowadays, you were put in your place by everyone, because people actually cared about this place, not just using it as an outlet to get their jollies or harass people from the safety of a keyboard. But that was definitely a different age, as far as the intent goes.

Sad to see that you don't care about this place anymore.

That might have something to do with the way of the internet in the 00's. Post-9/11 edginess has only been exacerbated since the 2010's rolled around.

In my experience, maybe like...4-5% of newcomers tend to stay around. Most are either here just to spam or post their music. Others just get a taste of it then sort of leave. The ones like us that see the heart of the place stick around. Yes, being around people that have been here for years can be intimidating but you learn it really doesnt matter. That's the nature of forums tho. This site gets a lot of traffic on Google so to expect every single search to be a promising new member is expecting a bit too much.

I've seen countless vintage threads and 95% of you people were dull, boring ****s with nothing interesting to say about anything.
