Downward Spiral in Forums

The situation with CCoK (Critical Curmudgeons of Kink) in particular and most FetLife groups and other websites I belong to in general is part of the reason I have been a lot less active even reading discussions. Signal to Noise is way overblown, which for you non-techies means that the amount of useful information is so far outweighed by the amount of bullshit you have to wade through to get to it makes it an onerous and un-enjoyable activity. I feel that any time I spend looking for well thought out posts and true critical discussion, and especially time spent writing a post in reply, is almost completely wasted. Yes, it is a downward spiral or self fulfilling prophecy, and CCoK has been stuck in it for a while as good people from all sides stop posting. I’ve felt this to such an extreme that I am cross-posting any posts I make on my own project, which allows me to at least feel like my posts on FetLife/Slashdot/etc are at least adding content and being preserved in one spot. Plus I’m confident in myself and my writing to actually feel that I have added something, if only a bit of a laugh, to those that read my posts. I’ll take Hubris over a Huge Bris any day.
