    That's probably true. Damn social media straight to hell is what I say.

    I finally signed up for Reddit last week, based on some stock stuff I've been following (not WSB, but I did learn about them last week on another sub). It's like a giant forum for everything in the sky.

    It used to be people would come here and other forums to see news, rather than searching a bunch of sites, but now you just wait for Tweets. Most people are deeply tied to Facebook.

    It's just a different time. There are a handful of specialty forums (AVSForum and things like that), that still have some traction, but nothing like a decade or so ago.

    Well, it is, but even puppies sometimes piss on the carpet and need to be swatted, so there's a bit of housetraining the mods are still doing.

    I made no judgement on that one way or another, just explaining that a few of us puppies took a piss on the rug and had our noses rubbed in it and our asses swatted...

    Not that I complain about some mods giving me a spanking...

    I don't think you know what Stockholm Syndrome is based on your use of that as a reply to T's post.

    I know exactly what it means and that’s why I used it. But thanks for your concern.

    But what T said doesn't correlate at all to Stockholm Syndrome.
