Sure . . . it is a thread about member retention. And there are a variety of reasons why retantion chabbges. Some wer ementioned. I'm not sure about the non-sequiteur about off topic forums being off topic forums. If one measures the level of vitriol by the number of reports, HR would currently be a virtual Shangri La compared top, say, a decade ago. And sure, there are fewer members to converse with now.
It's kind of humorous to hear people complaining about the off-topic nature of the Prime Time sub-forum, when there are many other sub-forums here that are strictly "on topic" supposedly more to their liking... but here they are... as though they lack some self-awareness? I'm trying not to be critical. Self-awareness comes in the 20s for a lot of people. I have my flaws too, but I really don't feel personal malice toward anyone.
