Re: Online Decline?

Hi Chris,

There certainly may be a change in the way that people use online discussion forums and such. That said, the number one complaint I have heard from people in why they no longer come to AikiWeb is the degradation in tone that people employ in their discussions -- namely, the lack of respect, aggressiveness (active and passive), and argumentative rhetoric.

In any case, no matter whether the tides are shifting and no matter how many people continue to use AikiWeb, I agree with the above sentiment (that the tone has degraded) and will be more active in addressing such here in the new year.
