I have noticed it. Not sure why they are leaving. Nobody currently posting is a jerk. Nobody trolling us at the moment.

Not here, but many parts of the country are in full swing with good weather. I'd assume that everyone is just getting busy, or have moved on to Facebook.

I think the Moderators have made a difference in volume, if indeed volume is really down or just perceived to be down. There is less tolerance for posting political and religious content. I am not sure how objective and unbiased the moderators are but regardless, they have reined in some of the bad behavior and endless banter. I think the forum could be improved if Macon wanted it improved. My guess is, he has bigger fish to fry.

It seems there is less and less actual cattle discussion and I generally won't engage outside of that to be honest.

Totally agree. Maybe it's just me, but the banter is what made the sight fun to read. I don't like when things get out of hand with personal attacks, but I enjoy hearing different points of view. Now it seems like a lot of repeating topics discussed several times in the past, at least in regards to cattle.

If you figure out how to keep it from getting out of hand, there is a Place In The White House for a man with your skills. Lol

Ive heard about heated topics here, but I don’t think I’ve ever witnessed one. I always hear about it after the dust settles, or perhaps I did read it and didn’t consider it a big deal. I’ve been on several forums over the years, and it still amuses me that things can get out of hand in a cattle forum. The thought of debates over loose mineral vs blocks doesn’t really bring out the beast in me.

I was just reflecting on the big production you made when you left here and your vow to never return.

What happened?

I miss everyone regardless of their perspective. I can't deal with idiots face to face, but I enjoy reading about different opinions. M5 has a lot of knowledge about cows and life in general. Common sense is something you can't learn from a book.

How much does he pay you to patronize him?
