Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winner!!! Online forums are communities and people in communities tend to want to get to know one another. Perhaps Rado likes living in communities where neighbors don't take the time to get to know one another ... but most people just aren't built that way. Also, online forums/communities are ALWAYS slower in the summer, as people have lives. I won't go into Rado's posted project details versus the posted project details of some of the people who chat in the threads he's griping about; it might make him look hypocritical for even asking about whether people are working on projects.
