    I have been here for several years and learned a lot.

    However I feel there is more takers than givers here now, unlike a few years ago.
    There doesn't seem to be any real contributions in the last few months by members, it mostly seems to just be posts of "how can I make money" and "where can i get this for free" etc.

    Any thoughts?

    There's more and more people joining and first thread they make is the goold old; ' how do I make money' followed an hour later by ' can someone tell me how to do X,Y or Z '.

    These people appear to be too lazy / stupid to search, to read for themselves, to do anything other than want to be spoonfed.

    There's still some good stuff shared on here, it's just buried under the numpties who need to earn $2 a day, as their mums cat is in hospital and they can't go out and do manual labour as they need to keep an eye on said cat.

    It doesn't look like you've contributed a thing since 2012, OP. Maybe you should be part of the solution instead of part of the problem, then get back to us.

    Kinda like porn torrents.

    "GUYS, SEED PLEASE. FUCKING LEECHERS!"

    Then when they downloaded their porn, you never see them again.

    i do have some thoughts. it's a book called 'who moved my cheese.' it's a simply-written book about how to cope with change. whenever i see a thread like is blackhat seo dead? or is blackhat world dead? i am reminded of that book. it's about two mice who love to find cheese within their maze. but the people who put them in the maze also move the cheese for whatever reason. the mice are forced to deal with the change, and work harder, and learn new things in order to find their precious cheese (aka money). any way, i agree that the very good posts happen less frequently. but what are you gonna do?

    I'm just speculating but I think people who've "figured it out" would be reluctant to share trade secrets unless their business is being a "guru". So less givers to those just starting out.
