Tom, I didnt intend to direct that question to you alone, but since you wrote those words, I used them to describe the situation.
It seems to me that at least 20 people visit the Room on a daily basis. That must be cause either they think that there is
something interesting goin on - occasionally iac - or/and they'r waiting for something interesting to get going.
Personally I don't think there has been much in the Room for several months. I'v tried to trigger many different topics; they beget a handful of posts at best, and then things die out again.
Guess it's like in a twosome relationship: If both parts don't take turns taking the initiative, and it's more and more up to the one part to do so, then they start drifting apart
I don't really know how much my posts interest other Roomies, but I do know that I'v contributed at least half of the novel information in the Room for several months now, and that doesnt seem very mutual to me
