Facebook and A2K both have their place and I frequent both regularly.
The changes to A2K were a bit awkward at the beginning but tweaks have continuously been made to improve the site. I find it to be very easy to navigate and user friendly. I may not have said that at the time of implementation.
The biggest change that I find is the lack of moderation. that someone has already alluded to. The language and roughness has gone too far to the other side.
I use facebook for contact and to keep up with what people are doing in their lives. I used to use A2K to learn something, but I find that I am learning less and using it for a bit of stress relief (or maybe this is the cause of the stress
) and I also enjoy reading the posts of many members.
Some members are also on my facebook list, but I am selective as to who they are and do not accept requests from everyone.
Robert, in my opinion, has responded to the needs and wants of the membership as this site has progressed. It is even a place where somebody like Hawkeye can say whatever they want without fear of being banned. Gee, I miss the banning.
