The biggest problem I see is too many people posting about things other than wine. Yes what you ate, listened to, watched, voted for etc was a nice adjunct when things were more active but now that's most of what We've got left. We've got people here that post regularly but little or nothing about wine in years. I don't know if some of them even buy or drink wine regularly anymore. That creates an odd dynamic if not hostile environment and repels newbies. Think about this. Who is the last new regular poster that has joined the forum? Can't think of one in years
GUILTY! I used to drink 2-3 times a week, then 2-3 times a month and sometimes I don't drink for 2-3 months. Still interested in wine though and the forum was just sort of a habit from when I was drinking a lot.
