I don't feel the need to defend this opinion.
But anything less than acceptance of your ipse dixit
means the community is doomed right? Even though you can't even defend your own opinion. It is to laugh hawkeye, you don't think your strength of conviction is incongruous with your complete inability to substantiate your position?
It is far too subjective a call, and maybe it boils down to nothing more than the things that I care about are increasingly missing.
It didn't become "subjective" until I asked you for substantiation. Before that you repeatedly made claims about objective things like traffic and activity levels and said I was too dumb to recognize your "truth" (not subjective opinion). These things can be quantified and measured (it's a big part of what I do for a living) and now when I ask you to substantiate these claims you suddenly like subjectivity and different view points.
You would go on and on about how this is destroying the community not that you merely think or perceive it this way but that it is an objective truth that must be recognized to spare the forum it's impending doom.
You even went so far as to say your predictions about this have come true (but clearly not in any way you can actually demonstrate) about the forum.
I see the convenience of "subjective" now for you, but what happened to all that dogmatic strength of conviction you had before you were asked for evidence?
I say what I see, other people say what they see, and in this way we compare notes.
You sure go from acting like your view point is the only possible solution to save the site from doom to this whole subjective viewpoints gig awful fast when you are asked to substantiate your fabricated claims.
Me trying to prove to you what I see is impossible, and my time is too valuable to spend on the effort.
Why is your time not valuable when it comes to repeatedly making the fabricated claims but suddenly valuable when asked to substantiate them? You could probably save more of that precious time, not to mention face, by not making up stuff that you might later be asked to substantiate.
