Where did everyone go?

I admit I haven't been here for years but I never would've imagined to see rarely any posts since 2012 and no posts in 2015 but mine.

Hey what's up Lamont? I remember you.

Long story short everyone left. We've gone to other places. I did not go to the same place most other members went to. You can probably figure it out if you dig a little.

That Wikipedia has changed from a dog eat dog tribal battlefield into a post-apocalyptic dead zone. Ergo, less need to bitch here about the zombie who stole your arm.

Hey, no, can't agree at all. There are still loads of fuckwits on Wikipedia. It's just that the fuckwits who were criticising the place (badly) here got so awful that Selina threw them off, and no sensible people have come along to replace them.

I don't know, its like this forum suddenly went quiet. And nobody seems to post here anymore. maybe its because every single problem with wikipedia has been discussed to death so there is no point in beating up a dead horse. and that has been the case since last year when this op was made.
