There are several more forums now (lots of traffic on the ZBB for instance), and the days of up to 300 messages per day is definitely over. Some people left because of all the traffic, others because of sharp words/culture clashes. The first was fixed by several types of posting limits. I do notice that there seems to be fewer widely off-topic posts now, and fewer threads that last for months. t.
