I don't really think many posters are shills, if any. But trust has always been one of my weaknesses.
Yeah, I do wonder where people go. Consider this, you are like 1 month into posting and already fed up with it all.
Openeyes can hardly handle it and barely posts. Scabdraggr never posts since he decided to train to be a real scientist. Fungihomeworld and half a dozen other really good posters on lymebusters never make appearances anymore.
Could we get just a little statement from Joney Mitchell or the Koch family every 5 years?
I suspect some of these families may have kids that grew to an age where they didn't want their identity to be poster children for a disease. Professional scientists and doctors don't want to marginalize their careers anymore than they already have with Morg research.
But the day will come when Wymore, Sapi, and Savely will be regarded as bold and heroic for the work they are doing now.
