    Just the cumulative effect of a nine month trend: the general disdain for conversation in this inhospitable forum.
    One cause is the lack of manners of some who know better but are unable to harness their unruly emotions.

    Another cause is the site migration. Some features haven't been restored yet.

    Another is the lack of passion over topics of general interest (and the fear of expressing an opinion that may be criticized).

    Can it be that we are like (married) couples that haven't much to say to each other anymore - either we have said it before, or we agree on most things, or we disagree and there isn't much point in going through all that again...?
