That shows the slow death of the forums over three years, but I believe SA was already in the ICU by 2009.

I would like to see a similar chart from 2001 until present.  If the chart used a weighted total number of internet users for 2001-2012, like they do for inflation, we would get a really good picture on the death of SA.  The number daily internet users now compared to 2001 has got to be astronomically larger.

Either way, even with the youth, mom, and hipster users increasing, SA is trending down.  Scary. :myecred:

i saw a thread in sa a while back where someone brought this point up, and the general goon response was "now we only have the cream of the crop, no more of the  :paul::johnwayne::adam: , or  :dubya: types"
A toddler and a flying dog CANNOT do work intended for an adult human. I wish my parents would believe me.

Hangly can have a similar sentiment when he writes in his journal every night.

Hangly can have a similar sentiment when he writes in his journal every night.




"... and with that, The Great Aryan Reformer was finally successful in cleansing the world of all impure and unworthy people.  Gone are the orientals, indians, negros, hispanics, and jews.  Left are only the pure and worthy.  My life's work is finally completed.  Sadly, this will be my final journal entry.  For I have nothing left to do, but to wait for His coming.  I pray that others like me have a chance to read of my great feats and services to God and to this world."

And with that, Hangly Man slowly closed his journal and placed his Mountblanc in the desk drawer.  He was about to log onto his blog as a tear slowly slid down his cheek.  He tasted the salinity of it.  He thought back, as the corners of his mouth turned slightly upward, that it was so ironic that the taste in his mouth was so similar to the taste of blood he experienced so many times during the Great Slaughter.  Gone from this taste was only the acrid tinge of copper.  He bit his tongue to taste it once more.  A flood of nostalgia and blood lust coursed through his veins.  Great God, how he had missed it.  He opened the desk drawer and retrieved his pen once more, only this time he did not close it.  "One final notation," he thought to himself as he opened his journal to the final page.

"However, in my Crusade to make the world a perfect Utopia, I made but one folly.  I am the last one left..."

He placed his Mountblanc back in the drawer and removed his trusty German Luger P08.  In all those years, it had never let him down.  NOT LIKE ALL THOSE FOOLS!  He placed the gun to his temple and paused...  "Surely He would forgive me this one trespass.  This mortal sin would surely be seen in His eyes as a venial sin after all of my tireless work is His name.  Yes.  YES.  It will."  Serenity quickly replaced the rage he had felt for too long.  Such a release it was.  A look of ecstasy reshaping the deep, battle-hardened lines on his face.  "Ah!  So this is why even the oldest of His flock seemed to instantly shed ten years from their faces as I absolved them of their sins.  BANG!  And peace.  Bang!  And peace.  BANG!  And peace."  He had witnessed it countless times, but now he truly understood why.  His eyes rolled back into his head in anticipation of the greatest Release.  His pants suddenly felt much too tight.  A feeling he had not felt since the last Purging. "Surely He will forgive my mortal flesh this one final transgression."  His life flashed before his eyes.  "BON MOT!  On this day I meet my Maker!" With that final reassuring though, he pulled the trigger.

Thanks.  I only effort when I get some kind of inspiration.  The reaction was pretty limited, so that's the  last of my efforteering, but I will continue my gloriously average threadshitting per the norm.

I was going to add that it should be "50% fewer SA visitors...", but who's counting?

Technically I defended outdoor activities, but it's funnier the way you said it.
