About 20 years ago, I was just playing around with a search engine and stumbled upon a forum where people were childishly fighting and arguing about gum. It was one of the most hilarious things I ever saw on the Internet. That forum has been replaced by others many times since then, and the exact same people are still arguing about the exact same things 20 years later.

I use reddit, but not much posting. I have a facebook and instagram but I don't use it much. I am a member of several other online forums but I'm not active in any of them.
Most of what I know about reddit is its more odious subfora, so it's always a pleasant surprise when I find a thread full of people being genuinely helpful and, well, not odious.

Once I was googling info on obtaining cash from ATMs in Colombia, and found a thread on a forum that was really helpful, and it turned out to be a forum for men seeking out mail-order brides.

Road-wise, I read a number of Facebook groups. Plus I still subscribe to the Roadgeek group on Yahoo and I do still read MTR.

Does ANYONE still use MTR?

And I'm a member of BipRoads, which seemingly is permanently defunct.

BipRoads was hacked.
When I go to MTR, there are sporadic posts but nothing really road related.

None anymore.  One forum sucks enough time out of my life, I don't need more.

A local area high school sports forum, an Ohio State fan forum, and my hometown's facebook group

I still visit it on a daily basis. There may be three or four posts a week.

Usenet in general seems to be dead. The traffic in the alt.binaries.sounds hierarchy has really slacked off. It used to be there would be hundreds of MP3s posted there every day. Now, days will pass between postings of albums.

Usenet was like a late '90s version of Facebook, only 1,000 times as bad.
