This worked to get the juices flowing last time  :zoinks:

I apologize for speaking out of turn. You are better than me in every possible way. I am indeed the biggest coward around.

What happened in 2011 to cause the spikes was it BC?

Not that I remember.  I think I was bickering with a lot of people on a lot of threads that year.  Don't know how much that contributed.

There was a lot of bickering then.
To me it looks like you're saying that banning bombs didn't stop bombs going off therefore there is no point to gun control because it's a mental health issue.

GA, Rissy, and last but not least adding to the activity; TCO. Lot going on in 2011. Not all of that worth repeating. 
I can do upside down chocolate moo things!

None of it, actually. But I'm sure new drama will come along.

Squid, Butterflies, Adam, Binty, Shleed, Duke, and maybe others not immediately coming immediately to mind. All similar in age, very prolific posters and highly interactive with each other.

Ah, yes. I forgot.

I'm old so I'm bound to forget.

Then they all grew up and left the nest and never write home any more.   :'(
it is well known that PMS Elle is evil.
I think you'd fit in a 12" or at least a 16" firework mortar
You win this thread because that's most unsettling to even think about.

I spoke to Lorna briefly, she is doing well.  Unlikely to come back though.

None of it, actually. But I'm sure new drama will come along.

Although drama does tend to drive up site activity in the short run, in the long run people get tired of it (at least most of us do) and leave to other sites or activities.

I went away in 2008-9 largely for that reason. I had way too much drama and conflict IRL and didn't need even more of it online.

I'd go so far as to wager that the recent drop in posting is due to a few members who are primarily looking to stir shit.   ;)
