Default Forums dying

I've noticed many social forums have closed down recently.

Are they becoming a thing of the past????
I refuse to join any dumb phone social media.
Don't even have a dumb phone.

To me, it they just makes people dumb.


Lack of post, and replies, here are really sparse.

I hope it can survive.

“Angels can fly because they can take themselves lightly.”

I think there's not enough Angels on forums anymore.

Is that the forum that talk about cars a lot? There was an issues thread that had regulars who picked on new posters with mean replies. I thought I was snarky. I was a wuss compared to them. I stop posting there because I got no replies to my references that I don't they got.

Message boards are definitely not a thing anymore. The public square of the internet has moved to Facebook, which is a tragedy, really.

I used to post in the comment section of The Honolulu Advertiser. But, you can take the time and energy and post a well thought out posting about a serious issue. And it only lasts a day as it goes the archives of the back issues because the day is over.

kinda interesting concept but I doubt there's much traffic being region specific, and I don't like the intrusive sign in requirements.
if you're a member, tell us about it, thx.

I certainly am willing to be a more active member here since I am not a member on Facebook (I never was on that) and I do not use my phone unless I send or receive a phone call. I am not someone who walks around staring at his left hand waiting for a message or something new to look at.
