If the numbers are correct and not manufactured, then there are still lots of people reading these forums. BUT, they don’t respond. I can only attribute that to the policy of real names. It is the only variable from the old active forum.
Maybe an “open week” where people can post using whatever moniker they like? That, I think would answer the question one way or another.
Of course, Larry and I and Wynn could just get together for coffee and people could eavesdrop on our conversation, which is, essentially what is going on now, but it would save all this typing.
How about it Ned? Are you willing to try it? You claim that real names didn’t hurt. I will ignore the fact that it obviously DID, but here is a chance to prove you were right. I have no dog in the fight. I always used my real name. I have nothing to lose, but others might be concerned about their jobs. The young lady at Carmike certainly would lend credence to their fears.
By the way, that story disappeared abruptly.
