They seem to have the same amount of time to waste reading tweets and timelines, so I don't really "follow" it? Things have really changed, back then if you said something ignorant you would get called out or a complaint would go to some guy sitting in his parents basement... not the authorities. Oh well, I still work on my car from time to time - usually consists of opening the hood, looking at the motor, sip a beer and scratch my ass.
This is spot on for pretty much all forums. They are ALL dead/dying. Its sad.
But kids these days have zero attention span to read more than a tweet and/or facebook blurb.

good old fashioned flamewars/arguing/debates... aint no one got time for that!

Maybe we are getting old but forums had something going 10 yrs ago.
