Is it time for "all" of us to review our place in these forums?
We've recently received step-back posts from Wolfgang and CM, who in them offered the reasons at least for the time being they are backing away from these forums. I am increasingly concerned that there will/should be no CD forums for those two or others to come back to in the not-too-distant future.
By my count, prior to this new thread, in the last month CD has received just 23 posts, an average of less than one per day. Those 23 posts were made to just two threads: Three posts to the thread in which CM made his announcement, and the other 20 posts to the Christology-based discussion in "Jesus ? "Not God" ? Savior ?" Further, of the 23 posts, 17 were created by @Keep_Smiling_4_Jesus and me in the Christology thread.
Those data points mean that in the last month, CD has received posts to exactly one thread that is in-keeping with CD's mission to be a "go-to place for respectful online theological discussion," a thread whose content is overwhelmingly the product of just two posters.
It seems to me that CD is withering away into a PM service accessed by @Keep_Smiling_4_Jesus and me, which in my view is neither a good thing nor what CD is intended for. Responses? Ideas?
