Monroe County, Lenawee, Hillsdale and Sadly Jackson County have next to ZERO media voice.  The media literally now gives .87% of a damn of what happens in this region.   We aren't Detroit.  We exist beyond Lansing, and Ann Arbor now chokes out anything meaningful as far as funding!   Cereal isn't sexy, but may be our regions biggest hope!  Wake up Monroe County.... nothing that happens North or South of your immediate boarders helps.... Lenawee, and Hillsdale Counties continue to gravitate to associations more rooted by Battle Creek, and Kalamazoo ideas and further begin to separate financial ideals AWAY from the syphons that are Wayne and Washtenaw.  If Monroe County continues to model itself as a "Detroit Metro" community... it will die on the vine.

It's interesting that the amount of posting is down although if you pay attention to the stats there are still quite a few 'lurkers' who continue to watch.  It obviously isn't what it was in it's 'hay day' but it's not quite dead yet.

It's 6:15 AM on Sunday morning.  There are 20 total guests which does include 3 spiders so maybe all 3 of the spiders are crawling the news board but I doubt it!

That is kind of interesting that a number of people are looking but never make a comment. Surely there must be something they agree or disagree with

I just looked right now and these are the 'current' online viewers.

This represent 'me' posting and 19 live person lurkers.  This is actually one of the lowest numbers I've noticed in the last several weeks.  But, for the record, it's Sunday evening in the middle of the Memorial Day weekend. 

A more 'typical' number is around 30 lurkers.  Sometimes I check my phone if I have to get up in the night and it's typical to see around a dozen lurkers even in the middle of the night.

Personally speaking, I don't miss the nasty participants.  Now, for the most part it's actually a 'conversation' with sane people instead of the nasty attitudes and condescending comments.

We can all agree to disagree without being stupid....  and that includes your nastyness as well jbs.

I'd guess different members would give various reasons if we could 'interrogate' them!

Most likely social media giants facebook and twitter took major numbers from us.

I don't do facebook but have slowly been doing more and more twitter as MT has fallen by the wayside. 

The big mystery to me is why we go so long between new members.

Gramps has been our newest member since he was a teenager!!!

Times have changed since MT got started. 

Maybe more people working more hours and just don't have time for partaking.  I keep watching and we still have an awful lot of 'viewers'!

I almost hate to say this for the sake of jinxing the servers but since our participation has slowed we haven't had a big server crash in a long, long time (there, blame me when it happens next week) ;) ;) ;)

I suspect there are a lot of the old gang who used to frequent here still view the site but not as often as they used to.  They probably don't post responses anymore due to hard feelings because of hurtful attacks made in the past for simply stating their opinions on a subject matter. 

I know I don't post near as often because I just don't care for the fact that an insult or something stupid will be tagged to it, my words twisted or words put in my mouth that was never intended, or just the combative nature that this forum developed into.
