Oh I don't know if I can get behind that. The decline of CE seems to be no different than the rest of the non - fashion section of SF. That is, disinterest and lack of posting by a lot of members who were worth a damn.

I see a lot of good people still on here, but that critical mass of posters willing to put time into posting with a degree of thought and sincerity is long gone. What we have left is a self - referential corps of 25 of so folks who are probably friends on social media outside of this website.

At that point the activity of the regulars on SF itself becomes kind of redundant.

But the point is that rather than any kind of lunatic opinion on CE, this site's decline probably owes more to the influx of new b - type threads in fashion. The sheer influx of new posters at some point polarized posters between the newbs and die hards... newbs didn't often venture into the lifestle/CE threads, the die hards stayed in touch via channels outside of the SF website, and that left a lot of people getting sick of the same of shit in Places like CE.

At least that's my perception.

Is the general perception even that the non men's - style sections of the forum have been in decline? They definitely seem less dynamic to me, an occasional poster, but this isn't anything i can back up with data.

Since the thread has outlasted its general usefulness, I prioritize my time accordingly, especially since I am on the mend from serious surgery.

If you have a problem with me, take it up on private. One rule remains sacrosanct, which is that mod or admin gets called out in public. You yell at the bartender, you get kicked out of the bar. I'm going to let this one incident slide, because you' ve always been an okay member and general shit disturber. But don't take this as license.

Also, I am going to change the name of this thread to reflect its new reality. "Member complaint support group" is my idea, but I am open to suggestions.

Don't follow this thread closely enough to know what's being talked about, but saw you mention you just had serious surgery. Hope you're OK, Fok, and recovering quickly. I imagine it's not fun.

^ you're not the only one.

Assuming the surgeon accomplished his goal, then the problem is recuperation. Since the physical body belongs to Nature, it is advisable to avoid those forces and activities which do not help the physical body recover. Unfortunately, sitting in front of an electronic device amidst electrosmog and various other pollution and poisons is contraproductive. Obviously, the best food is the opposite of junk, and without a better diat, the body will not be supported. High tech provides diagnostic sophistication, but if the patient doesn't have conditions to recover, he won't.

There we go. Took over my screen and tried to play an auto-play video.

^^ WTF is "electrosmog?" Does it cause fibromyalgia?

Reported up the chain. They are supposed to be blocking adverstitial entirely. 

 

@Piobaire can you tell me what part of the site you were on when it happened? That would help a lot.

Pretty sure I was in a sub forum and I clicked the upper left masthead to get back to the front page when it popped up. Pretty sure that's been the case each time.

Thanks. Hopefully they can get it figured out.

That's a very non SF oriented ad.
