Sometimes (rather often, actually) they create fake accounts for the purpose of spamming the forum, and the mods delete them.

TBH = "to be honest".

Re: Roll call. Who is still around?

"Bots" aren't always bad though. Search engines such as google use bots to index new pages on sites so that they can be found when people search for them.

Very true. The spam bots are the ones, I most enjoy giving the boot. We ban multiple spam bot accounts and post attempts a day.

Everyone, please report any suspected spammers or spam posts.

Thanks

Re: Roll call. Who is still around?

It's funny, I just logged on for the first time in months and saw this post. I don't know why I disappeared, but I want to try to post more. I miss this place and the friends I made here.

Re: Roll call. Who is still around?

I haven't been posting much but I'm still around. I still read some of the posts and plan to respond or I plan to start a new thread but then I forget. I'm doing better (anti depressants) but I do feel very guilty about having disappeared and not offering support just because I'm doing better. And selfishly I also worry that whe n I do feel like returning fully this forum will have became too inactive or my friends might have left.

Now that I'm better I'm also super busy. I will be back though.

Re: Roll call. Who is still around?

Here. It has been quiet and I find myself checking in less often because of that but I still check in fairly regularly. Tbh, I miss the politics as the conversations were longer so it kept me around longer.

Re: Roll call. Who is still around?

Still here, and also drinking coffee like all the rest of you cool kids. I think one issue with the usage level of this board is that by its very nature It's usually the kind of place that somebody can visit and get answers to their questions by either posting one or two posts or just reading through prior postings. I have a history of online forum usage so I understand the social aspect of it, but I can see where others may not drawn to that side of it.

Re: Roll call. Who is still around?

As a new member, I can tell you that this forum wasn't easy to find. I originally found it using Firefox and seeing a new set of articles Chrome didn't offer me. It was linked in an article (maybe blog).

After I signed up, I unfortunately broke my laptop and had to get a new one. Bookmarks gone. Had to find it again. There were fora that popped up first, and these repeated and repeated. This was way down the list.

Also the blue is not very eye catching. I chose it over the others because the posts seemed more engaging and intelligent to me overall.

Don't know if that helps any, but I am incredibly surprised this forum isn't more populous. Seems you may be wondering too.

You joined over 9 years ago, when the forum was very busy and therefore
easier to find. I'll bet we are a ways down the page these days.

Re: Roll call. Who is still around?

I log on a few times a week. My offline life with the small girl and making my IOP sessions, plus individual therapy weekly, simply has to be my priority this year or I'll end ho hospitalized again or dead.
