That's how I got here, that post on MacTalk with a big FU I'm leaving. It seems like the mods aren't doing anything about a sinking ship either. Maybe they still don't have the admin password?
Pretty much the only reason people are using MacTalk now is for selling things and that may not be the case either anymore looking at the last date that someone has actually posted there just now. I should revise my thoughts on that.
This type of leaving a drowning ship is not unusual for forums. It's also pretty well why the only forum I am actually a long term member on is dpreview and the whole Amazon takeover of dpreview hasn't exactly been smooth sailing all the way either. The reason why it does keep going the way it does is because they pretty much leave well alone.
I don't get what these outside companies see in these places. You only need to look at Tumblr and Flickr to see how much of a disaster this type of thing is for companies with much deeper pockets where people are leaving communities like drowning rats also even after Yahoo investment.
