I imagine it's a little of both. Huge threads about what you dislike or cargo shorts aren't the things that initially drew me to TDPRI... I suppose they were always there, but at least in my memory, they tended to have far fewer replies. I guess that's the price of success. For my part, I'm getting more curmudgeonly. People who insist that what works for them is what everyone should use are really annoying. Remember when we had threads about the Hubble Telescope? Or quantum physics? And female artists with actual talent like Doris Day? I know I know... Get off my lawn, and don't let the door hit me on the way out.
