I’ve been visiting this site pretty regularly since about 2002. I’ve been through several substantive changes in the way the site works. I’m still nostalgic for the site I found when I first visited with step-backs so one could quickly see who was replying to who, with an essay each week to which everyone could respond, with a great number of authors posting and responding. None of those things occur with the site, which is somehow distant in both immediacy and subject. Now one has to search through as many as twelve subject-posts to find a post that one is interested in responding to; now the only indication that a post “might” be new is the time attached to it; now there are so few people posting there’s little to hold one’s interest. I really don’t know what was wrong with either the site of 2002 nor with the site of 2015. But neither change has been good.
