I think members are "waking up to some of the more obvious issues ( T&C requiring you to allow popups( who does that? Especially on a site like
this?) Obvious none T&C violations being 404ed, comments removed, that have been proven( by members capturing them and requoting) to be within the
T&C yet get " Extreme T&C violation!" Etc. Allot are leaving for greener pastures, or spending their time looking for them. Others just won't be
violated by overagressive enforcement of anything disagreeing with the site owners, so they remove themselves. I am still on the fences about some of
this stuff myslef, as I haven't yet been the recipient of any of the above mentioned overzealous enforcement practices.
I can't blame the members though, this is a fringe conspiracy site, that generates revenues through adds posted to visitors drawn here by user
generated content. Which means the members not the owners do all the work, the owners just make all the money and give little if anything back to
those generating the content that brings visitors here in the first place. As such, the owners will come to realize this and adapt accordingly, or the
contributors will continue to leave and eventually take everything that they contribute with them. Leaving an empty husk of what was once my favorite
alt info site.
Also school is in, end of summer means a lot to do before winter for a lot of us also.
