My main beef with FB and G+ are that conversations don't seem to last long. I like that with a message board a conversation can go for months or years and people can drop in and out with their comments, and you occasionally get fresh blood with something constructive or fun to say.

Facebook conversations drop away too quickly.

Most modern social media is all about fitting the context of a smart phone, which means small words, small sentences and more timely discussion. That means no lengthy posts, no continuance of old threads, and definitely no back-and-forth conversation. It's all about PUSH content rather than PULL.

I also hadn't thought much of it, but now that it's been mentioned I do recall the hosts referring to the BBS as "full of trolls".. a place where the "kids can play in their sandbox", etc. Can't imagine many new listeners would be eager to sign up after hearing that.

Or experiencing it first thing on arrival. I mean, it has been that way quite a lot.

Trust the mods to do their job. Trust them or don't bring them on. ....

....Most importantly -

Creating a friendlier environment for content generators by disallowing chronic abusive behavior and letting your mods enforce it will drive your traffic.

I've been suggesting a clean-up of this board for years... Maybe I will even start posting here again.
