Where are all the posts

This may have been thrashed about. I apologize if it has. I used to be active in this group ten years ago. I gave it up because there were hundreds of posts a day and I could not keep up. I see the group has bee split, but still - where is everyone? I'm seeing 5 posts a day.

Still, there's a LOT of expertise here and I enjoy learning from some of the regulars.

Thanks Carl. I'm a little surprised to see a "Paid Subscriber" forum, I'll risk the $15.00 and try it out. I guess that's the way the web is going.
My primary recreation is woodworking and the only site I pay for is the leading publication in the industry (fine Woodworking).
Thanks for the suggestion.

It is well worth the money- you have access to experts in almost every genera, from all around the world. You can have an ID on a plant in no time flat, and the majority of posters know their stuff. And more importantly, those that don't know their stuff don't answer questions :)
Plus the PlantFiles, BugFiles, vendor recommendations- it is a very useful site.

Two forums that will keep you busy are GardenWeb and GardenGuides. But don't forget to come back here.

There is a mind set in this country that if it's free, it can't be any good. Also, people are always looking on how they can make a buck by charging for a perfectly good free service. I pay enough for my high speed connection to this forum. I don't need some elses service to pay for something I already have for free. Next thing you know, someone will figure out how to put advertising on these forums.
