What I've noticed over the years is that comments on TR appear to be specific to location. In other words, lower mainland TR (in general) generates more comments than other regions in BC, Alberta, Washington etc. which is unfortunate. People can post TR's for the same trail in the lower mainland and probably get more comments than, say, a trail which hasn't been posted from northern BC for example.
absolutely true. But AB side has dropped noticeably even for lower traffic when compared to BC, and several posters (Vern, Engor to name a few) that contributed invaluable info over the years have now left. This is red flag I was talking about; if I was management I'd actually send email to users like this and inquire -- if nothing else, it would help identify the issues.
