Why is LSD failing to TLS?
This thread is a good example.
What's your point? Higher traffic does not mean better conversation or more useful information.
This thread is one big complaint fest about the arch-nemesis of LSD, TLS. Having been a member of both sites for some time, it seems quite clear that both sites have some of the same posters and often have similar topics. To claim that TLS is inferior to LSD due to post content is silly, since there has been just as much useful information on that site as there is here. Moreover, I think my initial assessment is pretty accurate: TLS is more active, and response time is quicker.
That isn't to say I'm claiming that LSD is inferior to TLS - if that were the case I wouldn't read/post here anymore. But to claim that LSD is "failing" to TLS because TLS has crappier posts seems self-loathing. It's just the case that there is more activity over there, which generates even more activity. I don't know why LSD has slowed down (it's not dead or anything, though) but there's just as much crap here as there is over there.
