My 2¢ Worth:

Banters and forums focusing on many if not most different topics seem to have lost interest over the past couple of years.  Firearms and political forums stay pretty active it seems like but not many others.  I lurk around at a couple of long running fishing forums much larger than this one ever was and posts have fallen off to almost nothing.  A couple of other Cigar Forums I lurk around at occasionally have slowed way down also.  The thrill has gone, having 6 regular posters, 3 or 4 former now occasional posters and about 840 trolls doesn’t promote much interest.

Facebook and instagram are also other enemies of the traditional forums.

Last but not least, there are too many assholes and nuts hanging out on the various forums these days.  Assholes and frauds are a huge problem with the fishing forums.

Also, I personally believe the premium cigar industry as a whole has lost its cool factor and is headed into the tank.

On the more local area fishing forums the local guides regularly go on there and post totally fake information.  On the larger fishing forums the manufacturers have people post fake info about boats and tackle, especially about smaller manufacturers products.

Certified Nutcase of the week:

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — A Chesterfield family spoke with 8News Friday after fending off a naked intruder who broke into their home on South Twilight Lane the night before. The intruder claimed to be the devil and attacked the family, prompting the homeowner to fire 39 rounds.

She was in to kill us,” Melissa Lewis said. “That was her almighty, to kill us. She attacked us and I held her down just kept on punching her and punching her as hard as I possibly could.”

The Lewis’ dream home now looks like a war zone, with blood soaked into the carpet, the walls and windows riddled with bullets and shell casings scattered all over.

“I said ‘who are you?” Lewis’ husband, who did not wish to go on camera, explained. “She said ‘I need your help, please help me.’ I said ‘get out of my house,’ and she goes ‘I’m the devil.’”

She looked possessed, her eyes were completely black, like saucers, and she was laughing like it was a joke,” Lewis’s husband told 8News.

Lewis said the woman aggressively charged at him with superhuman strength.

“She was not stopping,” he said. “She had the strength of four grown men.”

When he ran out of bullets, Lewis began throwing furniture at her. His wife and children eventually jumped in and attempted to stop the woman. The intruder didn’t stop until one of the children, the Lewis’ 12-year-old son Logan, shoved a wrench into her neck.

Police arrested the intruder and she is being treated and evaluated at the hospital. The Lewis family left with bruises and bite marks.

I’m scared to go in there, I won’t even go into any room by myself, I’m terrified,” M. Lewis said.

Detectives told the family that the suspect lives nearby and will eventually be charged robbery, breaking and entering and attempted murder. She is currently in the ICU with severe head trauma.

39 rounds at close range and she's still alive?  He either needs to get rid of that gun or spend some time at the range.

May be similar to drops in participation for organizations like Lions and Kiwanis, organized sports beyond little kids sports leagues.  People dont seem to value making the time commitment, are "too busy" and have too short an attention span or need immediate gratification.

7.1 Quake Rocks SoCal, Searles Valley Hit Hard For Second Time In 24 Hours

Friday’s 7.1 and Thursday’s 6.4 both had epicenters near the community of Ridgecrest. The Thursday quake was already the biggest to hit Southern California in 20 years.

Since yesterday, there were more than 1,400 smaller quakes. The largest recorded about 5.0.
not sure what's keeping it from sliding off into the ocean, but it's just a matter of time. Nevada could become beach front property.
