For those of you who were around on CM during the last presidential election - what do you think has caused P&CE to be so different from Oct. 2008's P&CE?
Is it just a decrease in members?
Is it that the politically active members have left the site?
Is this election less important to people?
Just curious. I'm leaning towards the second option, but I was still shocked when I went to P&CE a few minutes ago and saw the lack of activity. If I'd stayed out of that section for two days this time 4 years ago, I would've come back to maybe a few PAGES worth of posts.

Many of the more . . . hmmm, loud members that participated in PCE during the last election have migrated to groups. If you go to the election group you will find many of them there, and the feel of that group is much like it felt back in 2008 in PCE. I prefer it docile honestly. I joined the election group for a period of time and the level of rhetoric is just mind blowing. It might actually be worse than PCE in 2008. And I see it coming from all sides. Nobody really wants a conversation, they just want to pummel each other with petty arguments and hypocrisy.
But don't take my word for it, check it out for yourself.
