So this place is seriously lacking in traffic. I've noticed it and so have plenty of other people. I'm not sure what the cause is, or the fix, to be honest, but there's a rotten stench coming from my favourite place to play.

For the majority of today I could see this;

Cutting off your nose to spite your face?
So, those who run this joint...what gives? What are you doing about it?




Well I think it's fine, building jumbo planes.
Or taking a ride on a cosmic train.
Switch on summer from a slot machine.
Yes, get what you want to if you want, 'cause you can get anything.

I know we've come a long way,
We're changing day to day,
But tell me, where do the children play?

Well you roll on roads over fresh green grass.
For your lorry loads pumping petrol gas.
And you make them long, and you make them tough.
But they just go on and on, and it seems that you can't get off.

Oh, I know we've come a long way,
We're changing day to day,
But tell me, where do the children play?

Well you've cracked the sky, scrapers fill the air.
But will you keep on building higher
'til there's no more room up there?
Will you make us laugh, will you make us cry?
Will you tell us when to live, will you tell us when to die?

I know we've come a long way,
We're changing day to day,
But tell me, where do the children play?
This aint no fuckin' bible study. I didn't come here to save whales. I came here to shake my dick and have a great time.

I don't think quantity equals qulaity, I mean you post alot but always I seem to read it in a whinny voice that sounds of complaining. Atomic has it's slow days every now and again, we can't always be at the computer. And I refer to an earlier statement with what you said about 1shot, I don't think many of his posts were that informative regardless of how many there were.
We may have gotten stronger but I believe we have become greater fools.

Maybe I should have also put in the OP that the quality is up the shit too then. Because there is neither happening at the moment.

I think a lot of people have been scared off posting because of the heavy handedness around here.

I feel for you, I really do.

I wish there was someway to make people post more, come on people I mean this is Atomic and you should be rushing here en masse with your quality posts, damn people and their free will!

I hate it when these things don't go accordingly... I wonder who I can blame...

I know!

I'll blame Atomic collectively by posting in feedback, hahahahahaha

A lack of good threads can be remedied by posting some good threads. That's your job, it's not up to David and J-Rob. Atomic Feedback goes in circles. Every few months there'll be a spate of mod bashing and 'Atomic ain't what it used to be' threads, and then it quiets down for another few months and everyone gets on with posting. It goes up and down and up and down, and that's how it's been for years. You haven't noticed this?
See you real soon.

Ok, let's at least try and keep this thread somewhat on-topic. FTR, we've been having lengthy discussions about the direction of the forum.

Not really. But hey, might as well make something from it.

90 now. Clearly, we're on an upswing. I wonder what could have caused it?
