RevJohn has made some wise observations about the nature of online communications and Wondercafe in Go_38's thread "Question from a lurker". Perhaps some of you missed it. So here is a thread to discuss the meaning of our online community (and others), it's usefullness, it's detriment, it's very nature. Has it done us good? Are we kidding ourselves? Are we turning ourselves into hopeless introverts? I'm looking for true honest opinions.
People leave this place. There are reasons for that. Will we all still be here in 10 years time?
