I find myself hesitating to write anything over there. It's plainly tiring to have so many limitations and know in advance that an interesting conversation is unlikely to follow. So it takes three times as much work to put a post together, especially if you want to include links. And the anticipation of the experience being rewarding is pretty much minimal or gone. For every ten posts that come up to my mind writing, I may write one.
Yes, that is my experience as well.

And where are the hundreds of new commenters writing their comments? I haven't seen but a couple of new names, which may very well be known comemnters from here with a different handle.
It's not about comments; it's about hits. As long as the front page looks "articulate and bright and clean," it's all good.
