I have noticed this week that a lot of the regular multi-time daily posters (lrbrd, Dos, Eddie, Eja) haven't been around at all. Did people disappear or is there a new celtics board somewhere?

It's slow season.

Maybe but the guys I mentioned usually post like 20 times a day and it has been slow season for a while. I wouldn't think anything of it if one guy stopped posted, but that is probably 4 of the 10 most active people on the site.

Well this is a response shrouded in mystery. I think I understand what you are saying. You can definitely tell the difference on the forum when the most active people are not posting at all.

My guess is the slow season. Now if there is a big trade, the forums will crash with all the traffic. It was nuts on draft night.
Once you are labeled 'the best' you want to stay up there, and you can't do it by loafing around.

Donugus kind of already said it's not just because of "slow season."

I did not interpret his meaning that way.

They all duked it out in that locked thread about Embiid. It got pretty personal. They probably are on suspended leaves of absence for the time being (hence the "holidays of sorts" comment).

I looked back and realized that was the last thing they all posted. There were a lot of people in that thread. It is funny how big a difference it makes on the boards. In addition to being prolific posters, they also are very passionate.

I wasn't going to make any further posts here, but I'll break that vow just this once to   opine that I wouldn't be surprised if this forum never regains its vigor.

Nah, it will be as vigorous as ever.

Can't speak for anyone else but I got a temporary pounding with the ban hammer, which was not exactly undeserved.

If you let the inmates run the asylum, places like this inevitably degenerate and fade away.
