I closed my Facebook account, so I'm back. Been away too long. I'll write more soon. Gotta clean up after the hurricane!

The biggest problem with forums from what I've seen is that they are old technology. People are more accustomed to bite size online interaction now, Twitter, Instagram, and the like. I've seen several forums become inactive over the last few years.

I think your right that forums are old school but a discussion that involves really thought with the need for space to develop cannot exist in the bite size social media of today.....and Twitter, anyone really listening to the sounds birds make knows they are complex and evolving, just like ambient music ;)

The best thing social media ever did was to create a platform for cat video's....that in itself will advance the human species much than a silly hashtag.

Not having a go at you cvac...you raised a good point.

I peruse a couple of music gear forums and they are very busy. In those instances there's always new gear / software to talk about, but it shows there is still life left in the format.

Emotion is expressed in the construction, content and context of a sentence.... what is usually posted here and elsewhere is to the point and curt which leads people to often make uninteresting and safe post.  Unless a fight breaks out and then everyone is taking off the gloves.

Like most things in life its how much energy your willing to put in.

But I think it can cut both ways, Julio, and it sure has in this forum in the recent past.  No need for folks go Trump on anyone to get their point across.  We can't all agree on erevything, and it's probably better that we don't.  Sometimes discretion really is the better part of valor.

I would agree with you there Forrest....aggression is not need.  Im probably expecting too much especially as peoples energies are spent elsewhere.

"Going Trump" ;D....now theres a new expression people may still use in the future.  Much better than flipping out or going postal.

Actually Pete I was not aware of the true meaning of "to give forth a trumpet like sound"...so I looked it up and found the truth :o
