Greg, I think the scarcity of posts has less to do with the format of the new Forum and more to do with the fact that people, especially active members, are leery of posting comments which could in any way be considered controversial. The politically correct snowflakes who worship at Our Lady of the Perpetually Aggrieved are constantly in search of someone they can crucify for offending their delicate sensibilities. Even the old format Forum wasn’t what it once was when guys weren’t afraid to use their real names and voice their real opinions.
It’s ironic that we live in an age where we can communicate in nano-seconds, but people are often reluctant to communicate because Big Brother may be watching. George Orwell was only off by about twenty or thirty years.
