    Make Internet Forums Alive Again!

    This is not even a joke. This is serious that a few internet forums that I'm part of are dead. Nobody isn't even responding anymore. I know that social media is popular now but knowing how negative and toxic social media is internet forums are becoming extinct. I know that I'm not the only one who noticed the extinction of internet forums.

    The most you can do is post engaging things that generate conversation.

    Today's internet-based communication is mostly based in instant gratification and rapidly wrapped-up discussion. Forums, in the current paradigm, are out-dated, obsolete. It doesn't mean however that a few people like us still like the more in depth and slow paced conversation and debate that can be carried on forums, which are usually impossible in today's means of communication.

    Much of the problem with small forums is/was personal drama. I was a member of the all-time best horse racing forum years ago, and it suddenly ended because of a bad romance between admins. Another one I used to belong to had the most convoluted, absurd backstage drama going on and lost everyone due to it. When you get a more encompassing platform such as facebook, you see that in the individual groups. People just can't get along. (Except here, of course!)

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    Yes most Facebook Groups (especially in Lenormand and Tarot) are horrible in my experience.
