Default Re: Is Anyone There?

This message board is run entirely out of pocket by me personally.

The lack of traffic is not uncommon for message boards, which are definitely a relic of a time before social media. Most of the competing message boards are gone now. The gathering place of the modern age is Facebook, which is tragic for a variety of reasons.

The lack of new members and the lack of spam and trolls are due to the same reason: I manually review applications to join, which avoids all the loopholes around automated systems.

I've just continued to pay the bills in part because of the massive volume of historical knowledge and commentary HawaiiThreads.com has accumulated over fifteeen years.
