The forums do seem less lively now that the blog/comments is gone – so at least you have a point. I think the forum is still somewhat helpful though, but you are right, things seem to have slowed down here – for me, it would be better to bring back the old 180. But I am not seeing things on the other side. Maybe the 180 way is spreading well through other means and not getting mired in some of the negativity of the debates in the comments sections?
There seems to be fewer voices of experience in the forums now. Experience is extremely valuable and gives others a reason to trust 180 but also brings in room to debate among those that have gone through this stuff which is what shows individuality amongst those of experience. The more individuals that stand out here – the more the new people can connect to….
