Panda Termint Default Re: What caused a statistically significant decline in traffic recently for ESMB ? This thread is done. It was done from the outset but garnered a few good laughs along the way. Thanks to all who contributed to the mirth. We've had posters here predicting and bewailing the imminent demise of ESMB for as long as I've been reading here. It always reminds me of Hubbard's dire predictions about the fate of mankind. You know, "five more years" and all that! I'm not saying the doomsday-prophets are acting like Hubbard... or maybe I am. Sometimes it strikes me that, to some people, "Keeping Criticism Working" really is a deadly serious activity and the whole agonised future of every man, woman and child here on Planet Earth depends on what we do here and now on ESMB! This is probably why we can't have nice things. Classic Panda!
