Besides bots uploading Files and downloaders grabbing them is there anybody here besides me & Kath? Where is the community?

Being an old geezer I have been (and still am) a member of several boards that are long past their heyday and are now down to a few stragglers. Even so, those boards are like Picadilly Circus compared to here.

Because there were no obvious views or comments or reactions I stopped posting here once. Then I got a message from Kath wondering what had happened so I started again.

I'm again beginning to wonder what's the sense if no one is interested and there is no community.

I understand what you mean, dvernb. There aren't many interested in interaction with others here or any other Warez sites I visit. It's down to the "bots uploading Files and downloaders grabbing them" as you said. I guess that means everyone should follow suit and stop going through the motions. Participation is voluntary. We provide a space for those who want to post informative topics or discussions. Those who choose to join in will and those who don't won't.

I have faith in people. If we build it, they will come ... but for now it's mostly bots and lurkers as you said.

Now, I will post a short article about Lunar Gateway as I was about to do before I saw the title of this thread.

I too am an old geezer and I agree with you there seems to be less interaction on boards than I remember.

I have been known to post "Is anybody there - knock once for yes and twice for no!" and get - no knocks at all as a kind of non-reply . Well I am here and old or not I hope to be around for a while yet.

Cheers

You'd be surprised that people actually won't take part in discussions if you react by accusing and threatening them simply because you aren't ready to read different point of view than your own. You end up talking to yourself just like in real life.

All true - sometimes poeple bully, threaten and even "no platform" folk with different ideas - free speach is a wonderful thing and we should all defend it and be prepared to listen at least - we don't have to agree but we should always listen and be considerate of others points of view but it is or should be "a two way street".

It'd all down to this so called gen Z generation (aka snow flake generation) 

They get too easily offended. 

Talking to yourself is no bad thing at least you can have a intelligent conversation 😂

I pop in from time to time, however most of my chatting time is spent on Facebook where I also have several groups that I run. It's just life I guess.
