People participate in groups, online or offline, for various reasons. Majority follow trends. This is big reason behind FB, "Gram", etc. success ("I got 122 likes, how cool am I??") Some crave attention/recognition ("Look where I've been & what mountain I climbed"). Bullies want to stir trouble & argue. And then there are those that don't care about any of the above and just want to share & feel part of like-minded community without expecting something in return
In some ways it is better CT is the way it is now. There is far less traffic & posted info, but there is also no trolling, arguing, personal attacks etc. that were also prevalent in heydays. Yes, it would be nice to have guntises, simons, sodbusters, etc etc again, but it is also fine if we don't. Nice people still come here & there is enough info to keep interest.
