    Diversity I can handle.

    Arrogance not so much.

    January 1 to 25, 2014 Update:

    1) Of sixty [60] RHP General Forum Threads on pages 2-3 during 2014, three [3] received one hundred plus posts:

    2014 RHP Prose Competition Original post by Silverstriker, 10 Nov '13 (135 Posts; Last on 1/11/14 Page 2)

    What's your IQ? Original post by Subscriber Tygert, 25 Sep '13 (216 Posts; Last on 1/03/14 Page 3)

    jimslyp forum killing champion Original post by Sicilian Sausage, 23 Sep '11 (218 Posts; Last 1/2/14 Page 3)

    2) Of the sixty [60] threads on pages two and three, thirty one [31] or fifty percent received nine [9] posts or less.

    3) Results of an informal poll since 1/1/14, on reasons why site members no longer contribute to this forum: conversations uninteresting; topics mediocre; an unwelcoming clique atmosphere; and frequent insensitivity to the feelings of others.

    4) Thought for the Day: "If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they’ll kill you." -Oscar Wilde

    Recess from this forum continues until late March. Best to each of you and your families during each day of 2014. -Bob

    update (see current date)

    from the recent 100 threads (all of which received posts in the running month) we do have

    1 with more than 10.000 posts

    4 between 1000 and 9999

    7 between 100 and 999

    So did the activity go up all in all?
    Did the quality of the forum increase?
    did people enjoy themselves more?
