Very few things are what they were 10 years ago. My waistline, for instance.

Dude, NO ONE but Boomers and Gen X'ers use FB and Twitter any more. You need to get out more...

Similar conversation on the Ask-a-Dealer thread (you know, the one which no longer has any dealer participation?) about the similarities to RoadFly's implosion.

It was fun here while it lasted......

Truth with one small observation: Instagram, Snapchat, TikToc and the other ANTI-social media hell holes are all about staying IN so they can advertise the latest influencer's favorite hammock. Unless there's some manufactured outrage over some ridiculous sh!t that the drones who use it are instructed to follow. In that case, please do not interact with one another in any meaningful way except to throw rocks at the folks who think whole milk is better than almond. The HORROR!

Or something as totally fncking stupid as that.

I think a lot of the implosion of Roadfly was due the combination of a new (and better) format and one creepy stalker. I had somebody else from there send me some creepy threats, mistaking me for somebody else on the Interwebs... I think... hope.

I suspect a lot of BMW salesmen don't have time for BF, due to their night jobs. The car salesman is having to deal with "climate change," similar to what the stock broker, travel agent, and real estate agent have had to.

To be honest - once my car hits 4-5 years of age I stop reading its particular forum (in this case the F10 one).
And with PoliSci gone - not much reason to come here anymore (degenated as it was).
These days I spend more time on the Tesla forums.
