The same demise will eventually overtake the caveboard forum

No animosity intended, it's just a forgone conclusion. An inevitability.

The membership is comprised MOSTLY of the same handful of people, and of THAT group, some have ceased posting.

Any new participants are quickly turned off by prevailing attitudes that discourage ANYONE that doesn't share those same perspectives AND views.

You either fall into lock step, or find yourself ignored, or in the worst case, insulted.

Again, no animosity intended, I just thought it was unseemly for the dying to gloat over the dead.

        Accurate up to a point. However, the most active current posters are not part of the old guard from Schutz. Not aware of prevailing attitudes, beyond an interest in the series and in what new media... more

          What you're describing, in return, is only accurate..To a point. A couple of "the old guard" still remain, and even with the newer, more active members (that is to say, who actually post comments) at ... more

            I fully agree the gloating is unseemly. For the most part, this board was a well regarded and appreciated "place". If the gloating is being done by someone who asserts or implies that the cave board... more

              I didn't say the "Old Guard" asserts themselves to enforce prevailing attitudes. I don't know where you're getting that. I'm saying over all, if (As was my case)a member introduces and maintains... more

                As familiar as I am with the cave board, I have no clue as to who made the grim reaper post here. The people I know who were once here and are now over there - I don't think any of them would gloat,... more

                  Hope you have an enjoyable, Happy Holiday Weekend too. As for posting the link to the thread where my incident took place, I'd rather not. And incidentally, for the first time in a VERY LONG time, I... more

                    I didn't mean to imply I was responding to a "gloat" made by you. Upon re-reading what i had written, it can come across that way. I meant I was just responding to your POST.

                      Got it. Interestingly, it has been a bit of a surge week for the old guard. Some of the names you see there currently have gone weeks or months w/o a post. Well, we just might be dancing on different ... more
