1) Well, you are something of an elitist... so only special people would contribute appropriately.  :D

2) A couple of weeks ago I posted something to can.politics in the late afternoon. When I next visited the site the next day there had been no posts since I had last posted. In the old days there predictably would have been scores of new posts. So traffic is way down. And a lot of the more discerning posters have left, not just because of the moderation but the proliferation of crazies (and the moderation which comes down on anyone who makes fun of them).

1) Hey - you're saying it, I can't deny it but in my defence: I'm talking about boring, repetitive topics.  That's not an elitist thing.  It's not accurate or fair to say that I only discuss things with people who agree with me.

2) The crazies are not just crazies but boring crazies.  There have been out-there posters in the past that I could find interesting.  But the 9/11 guy, the bible lady and all the pro-Trump nuts and Muslim haters are just dull, dull, dull for the most part.
