most of them just found something better to do with their time i suppose, i mean yeah its interesting here, but do you really want to do this for the rest of your life? and maybe you do idk, but most people get bored and try to find something else.

Im uncertain this is the correct forum for this post, but im not sure where to put it. This has been something ive pondered for a while now. When i go and look at some of the ats archives, so many of the posters are unrecognisable to me, and i dont see many current posts from most of them. Why do you think people leave ATS? obviously some of them must have died (of boredom probably with some of the daft things that are posted on her lol). But why do people go?, because conspiracy theories, paranormal studies etc are, in my mind, COMPELLING stuff. So why do people leave? maybe they become dishearted with the continuous search for truth. What do you think? surely then cant have gone over to the dark side, the OTHER forum
...All the people we used to know
They're an illusion to me now
Some are mathematicians
Some are carpenter's wives
Don't know how it all got started
I don't what they're doing with their lives ....
