Subject: Actually, it seems like it might have been more active than you remember.

Obviously, it's true that the very busiest periods (the archives say we got five returnbies, ten newbies and five permission requests in January 2013; there were fifteen PPC pieces published in July 2008, somehow) are outliers, but it seems like the newbie, mission and thread rates historically were much higher than they have been lately, with about two to four threads per day being a rough average, and it does seem like very fast exchanges (multiple posts per hour) occurred on a fairly regular basis. However, it is worth noting that the original discussion here seems to have started on the tail end of a particularly slow period; it's less clear now that Board activity is dangerously low, although 'off-topic' might still be the case and the higher thread rates are partly due to multiple short threads.
