Sock puppet reinstated
I think part of the problem is that General Chat has become the go place for social issue, and the other areas seem to be very civil, and purposeful. You can in no way judge the discourse of the whole of HT by GC.If all followed the advice “ not crap in the sandbox” we would be better and healthier for it. I minimize my time here because crap is always flying. Treat your neighbors better, I’m sure your mother taught you that. If she didn’t, hopefully you could learn from example.
It is lowest ever than it has been at this time of year. The pattern is there.Could just be because it's spring and there's a lot to do outside. Also, with covid restrictions being lifted, people are getting out and doing something other than hanging out online.
And there are few new/regular members to replace the ones that have passed on. And those that come ask a few questions then disappear often without a thank you.Some of the folks have passed away in the last few months, too.
Hits the nail on the head. We should be a community that assists each other. Yet, I tend to see plenty of rock chuckers and poop slingers, this applies to many. All should be welcome. Can’t help them, then keep your opinion to yourself.And there are few new/regular members to replace the ones that have passed on.

The new format recommending threads from years ago over current ones doesn't help.
The rudeness and vitriol (blame whichever side you want) destroys any feeling of community that existed even if it was heated back in the day, that is now dead. I have been told more times than I can recall by several members (of course without moderator intervention) that my opinion wasn’t valued and had no business posting here because I am Canadian....
The site owners would be wiser if they payed more attention to what is killing this site.
At least the search function ‘sort of’ works.
