People come, people go, some return, some don't. Some people you want to stay, go, and some people you want to go, stay. It is the way of an internet community....

Varna and Inc', I don't think that the Facebook style of interface is necessarily all that more superficial than, say, the messageboard format. It really depends on how you use it, and how the people you're friends with (of whom, incidentally, there don't have to be hundreds) use it. Messageboards are certainly more appropriate for detailed or extended discussions, of course...

The bad stuff didn't happen here, Inc, but it also kind of contaminated the whole board. Kind of took the happiness away.

I don't really think the slowdown is because of Facebook or any type of social networking site like that. For me, Facebook is kind of the site of last resort, I post there to keep in touch with people I can't keep in touch with anywhere else. It may be a consequence of the Slowdown, but I don't think it's the cause.

I hardly ever posted in the threads where bad things happened, but there are always the beginning of posts in Active topics, so even I would occasionally see some of it.

I don't think either that other social media have dragged people away from MT. That may be where they went - but like you say, not why they went.

What was the "bad stuff"? I didn't get drunk and do my stripper routine again, did I?

Keo with shorter hair? Hmmm, I'll reserve judgement until I see the evidence.

I spend too much time on Facebook. I know it. I just don't seem to have the will power to do anything about it. But it is nothing compared to what I spend on WikiAnswers. That is truly scary!

I hit 9 years on here in February. And while many have come and gone, we've even seen several members go to the East, where we hope they are dancing with the elves.

I'm gonna wait until Oriona posts the new photos from yesterday on Facebook to post photos in the Face thread. Omigod yesterday was hilarious...

My gang and I went to Disneyland, and Oriona, Chester and Eric got TRASHED. We spent a couple hours in the Grand California hotel bar in California Adventure and Eric discovered this amazing drink called The Black Pearl. It was over. Ori had something called Glowtini and by the final shot of Yager they were DONE. I basically half carried my boyfriend across Disneyland for hours as he said the weirdest sh*t on the planet. []

I started eventually texting myself all the weird crap he was saying so that I'd remember it all. This morning our conversation revealed a lot of it and he was laughing soooo hard and kept apologising for being abnoxious.

So it was in that state that our dear Naytari and several of her family friends met Eric. I warned her ahead of time that he was drunk off his a*s, but they seemed to all enjoy each other anyway.

It was also Bat's Day, a giant convention of goths, and Eric and I played a game of pointing out hot goth chicks to each other all day long. Am I a good girlfriend or what? [] []

So, Ney, impressions of Eric? []

I do not know into which of the categories Snowdog discribed at the top of the page, I fall into, but still I am making an effort of a comeback.
So is all fine in the land of Tolkien maniacs?

On another note, short week ahead. Thursday is off, but if it's possible, I'll work that day as well.

I'm off to Volgograd tomorrow evening-it's a working trip but I should have time to see a bit of the place.
Can't believe the new MP in my home town is Ben Gummer, the son of one John Selwyn Gummer [] . My Dad reckons he's better than JSG himself, though it's hard to imagine how he could possibly be worse without having already been committed to an institution []

With the normal internet access unavailable and using only a slow connection, I reckon I won't be online much over the week-end ...

I've said it before, but it seems that every week there is a day somewhere for for something in the world [] But Norwegian Constitution day, that's a new one on me! Still, shouldn't really knock the Norwegians. In fact there is a lot I admire about them. They certainly seem to have a better Government than we do!
