    Where is everybody?

    It seems like there used to be a lot more posting here in the past. Is everyone on vacation?

    Re: Where is everybody?

    I have notice that too. There use to be like 5 pages in the random thread to look at and now the most is 1 or 2.

    Guess everyone is busy transitioning from Hallow to Holiday Wishes this week.

    Most of us have busy lives outside of this place. I know I do. I attend college full-time and work part-time. WDW Radio, unfortunately, comes last in my list of priorities at the moment.

    and the fact that some members posted during the day got their connections here terminated, but a good part of it is what flutter said, Facebook

    Re: Where is everybody?

    I tried Facebook but found it to be tremendously annoying. I kept getting stupid messages like "so and so bought you a drink for for being a great dad". Wow. A virtual drink from someone I last saw in 1982. How do they know I don't beat my kids? I haven't seen them since Ronald Reagan was in his first term. Also I was annoyed by the "I'll trade you a cow for 3 pigs". What the heck is that about? Then you get to read scintillating posts from a friend of a friend about their inner feelings regarding shopping. I can do without all of that. How something like that is popular with adults is beyond me.

    These.

    Plus, I don't work "normal" hours so my sleep/wake schedule is off from the majority of people.

    Re: Where is everybody?

    So the dozens and dozens of people who used to post daily are now enrolled in college and are too busy to post...or they are glued to Facebook playing Mafia Wars. Makes sense.

    GREAT sum-up, dude.
    I agree...that whole thing is pretty much a pile. The things people share, and yes, especially "adults" is just off-the-charts stupid and self absorbed, so MUCH of the time. The term "Get a life already!" isn't even sufficient enough. I really just don't get it either...
    I keep getting told I need to get a page (or whatever they call it...?) there so I can network with people, so I may end up givin' in at some point just to communicate with some folks from my past just for that reason. Youngest DD set DW up on it not too long ago, and she found one ol' buddy of mine from junior high in Cali. and another UT friend of mine that lives in the northeast...as far as I know, they're not "Diznuts" like me, so they probably wouldn't spend the time to come here and hang with me...
