    This Site

    WOW, It sure appears to me this site is growing I have been noticing the number of people logged in and reading the various threads over the last several weeks. The numbers seem to be getting bigger every week. When I logged today I noticed the General Discussion section had "200" viewing. To those responsable Thank you for such a usable site

    This site has been growing for many years thanks to lots of unpaid volunteers and great people willing to contribute.
    You need to put the phone down and get back to work!

    Really? Maybe so, but I see so many names from like 2002 to 2015 that no longer post on this forum. Hundreds of people seem to have left, and I have to wonder why that is. Maybe that is just normal as internet boards go. I don't know.

    I leave for months at a time. I do have other interests. And while it seems a lot of people have left, when I do a search many times I'll find that the person hasn't left at all, maybe just isn't posting as often, or maybe posting in forums that I don't follow.

    There is a great number of reasons that many people don't post here anymore. Some retired, some have an illness that they're struggling with.... and some have passed away. Some have left the trade, too.

    alo t of diyer log in and leave cuz they don't hear what they want. then they run over to the sit site where they do stuff that will turn your stomach like hooking up a condenser to see if it runs with the vlvs closed and lines unhooked.

    Like wise. Also have looked for people that I haven't heard from then find them lurking somewhere else.

    Here's a thread I started in 2006. I found it by doing a Google search. How many of the posters in this thread are still active today? The only one I recognize is coolwhip.
