Is it my imagination or is there starting to be less activity on the forums???

I think there are some that aren't posting like they used to... and maybe some newbies that haven't started. Hope they're not afraid of being attacked!

All you need to be a member of team Clio is to be yourself :-) But one day, a man might come to your door and ask for a favour. You WILL do as he says.

I agree entirely. People come and go for several reasons. Maybe they met someone? Maybe they aren't getting out of this site what they expected? Maybe their "real life" is interfering with their "online life" and thus they don't have the time to post as often as they once did... etc.

I also don't think the small amount of bickering could turn someone off of posting.. and if it does... well then that's sad for them because I'd hate to see how they handle themselves in the "real world".

And kew..this is NOT a "personal attack on you" since you seem to think I have a vendetta or something.. but I agree with theo... out of nowhere you just called him out and attacked him for being "a large part of the reason people are leaving"... so.. since when are you the expert on why people leave? Sorry, I've read alot of theos posts and can't say I find anything offensive to the point of someone choosing to leave the site.

And yes I'm sure I'm one of his "associates" you spoke of. Erm.. personally I don't care. *smiles*

Wow, which forums have you been posting to? Actually right now has been a bad time since everything has slowed considerably. However, the people seem to be making a slow come back and there are always new people coming in to greet & meet. It's nice to meet you. I'm Aijin. ^_^

Welcome back Aijin. Hope while you were gone you were having a good time.

Theo you are right on occasion we do dicuss the LF boards. You know did you see the post under dating and such like that. Mostly to let someone know of an interesting post, annoyin post, or drama post. But it is nothing bad I don't think. Well I am glad you enjoy your enemies but you do have a following too.

Less so now, but initially it was undeniable that the chatrooms contributed to cliquishness. It's unavoidable too, simply because you've got this set of forums and some of the members here go off and post on their own forum, so they know each other better and, naturally, feel closer to the ones they know.

As for the content of what's discussed, I'm sure the discussions are varied but I have heard reports from people who DO frequent the chatrooms that what goes on here does get discussed.

All of this is unavoidable. I don't have a problem with the chatrooms existing but at the same time there's nothing wrong with realising that their existence has a knock-on effect.


As I said before, I'm not really on here to make friends. My profile's up and I just use this place to write a little, antagonise a few people and generally amuse myself. Despite this, I don't seem to have any problems attracting people who want to talk to me as a result of the stuff I say here.

So thanks for the offer and the advice but I'm quite happy as I am. Thanks :-) But I like the idea that I'm making enemies... that sounds like fun.

I think you are as much of a problem as I am Kew. You continuously pop up in threads frequently posted by new people and judge people. Either offering your usual passive-aggressively phrased "advice" or just flat out dumping on people.

You've also contributed massively to the cliqueishness of these boards by partaking of and creating the various chatrooms which have caused nothing but trouble and resentment as they breed unpleasantness.

I have a forceful personality, I don't deny that but you're exhibitng why you're as much (if not more) or a problem poster with the tone and content you've just addressed to me.




LOL... sometimes I just can't help but laugh... LOL

Sadly, I have been a member of this site longer than I care to admit, and I have seen the boards slow down and cycle a few times. Give it time, it'll pick back up.



I hope so... all this makes me sad...

Yo !

Guys, please chill!... i like you both, and to read this thread makes me put down the Margarita and get to the keyboard and tap, tap, tap..

The beauty of this forum is that we all can express our opinions, that's cool, but please take it easy, don't start unnecessary friction (of the wrong kind, if you know what i mean..lol). Said that, please now kiss and make up.. make Love NOT War.

Theo... like I said in another thread... I feel sorry for you... Really, I do. In case you didn't realize it, you are a big reason people do not post... because they do not want their words ridculed by you and your associates. I have had numerous people tell me that they will not post because of you... which is such a shame. I am sure you might be a wonderful person, but I wish you could just learn to back off sometime. And for the record... I personally do not hate anyone here.

Any singles site is going to have membership churn, probably more than any other kind of site.

Evidently we've reached a point where a number of high-posting regulars have moved away and there's a lull before new people arrive and take their place.

I have been on this site for quite some time and I am afraid that most of the regulars have moved on for whatever reason. And yes, I do believe new people are afraid to post... not everyone knows how to handle the "attacks" for lack of a better word. It is such a shame.... when we lose our voice, we have lost so much.
