Quoting TheAenigma

 

 

 This is an oft used statement, but never actually proved.  I believe a couple of people have left of this reason, no more.  If I am wrong, please clarify to me which members left for this reason...

 

Some people cherish their privacy (and most often those who are thoughtful and sensitive) , so I will not divulge who left for that reason, but I can assure you it is many many more than a couple.

 Actually I read the rules and a lot of others do as well. When they see they aren´t taken seriously, they very often leave.

 

As for a thread being strong enough to survive disruption....I disagree. We have had numerous members leave in frustration. Do you want a serious forum or not? It´s that simple. I agree a few light hearted posts are fine, but they too often rapidly become just rude and abusive, and too often just disruptive for the sake of seeing if they can disrupt things. All too often they are succeed.

 

Often serious topics take thought, research and careful consideration. When others jump in, like children, it´s like making a dam in a stream. Thoughts are disrupted and the discourse is aborted.

 

 I have actually known a few member that have sited YOU as a reason for leaving......but we still tolerate you.{#lang_emotions_rolleyes}

As I said, this is a nice little statement to make to "prove" how people lose members.  However, it is never backed up.  If people choose to leave, I can assure you there are always plenty of new members to replace them.

 

Lets have a look at the deleted user list for the last, say, 6 months....hmmm I can´t see many other than spammers!  The others appear to be back with us!

 I don´t HAVE to proove anything to you. Most don´t ask to be deleted, they just don´t come back or contribute to discussions. It´s not that hard to look at threads to see members who contributed and no longer contribute.

No you dont have to prove anything to me, yet you normally do!!! And usually provide a nice link too!

 

Well, as I said there are plenty of new members contributing.  If others wanted to leave, so be it

 What you seemingly fail to understand is that her statement was absolute fact.  So if you are going to rail against those of us who keep it light here and make the bold statement that we are driving people away, then perhaps you should take a long hard look in the mirror.

I believe the most important lesson we should all learn from today is that we should spend more time on our posts to ensure they are more intellectually stimulating.  If this is not possible, then we should remain silent and gravely contemplate the vast intellect, wisdom and superior literary adeptness of others postees.  We should not just ´read´ their posts, our eyes passing over them in haphazard fashion! No! We should salivate, absorb; nay quench our thirst for knowledge, lest we continue to be the inferior shallow beasts who merely display temerity to jest in the presence of our intellectual superiors and who prey on our peers and force them into abandoning this holy site!  Amen!
