Once again, disaffected - I presume, it isn't about geographical locations.
One of the reasons that springs to mind, is that I personally like to re-read posts many times for it to be fully absorbed into my inferior brit-brain. I'm assuming others also re-read the same post too, perhaps when mid way through a response and acquiring quote from various posts - as an example scenario. Sometimes, i'll read a post - and not have the time available to reply right away. To reply, I have to re-read it. Sometimes I return and edit it slightly for one of a million reasons. Some people are just happy viewing without the need to add to it, perhaps their view has already been spoken in a post.
Another is that as sites update, some will point to a particular thread upon this forum, rather than the index page of it, sometimes a specific post within a thread. Some offer heavy traffic to the thread while others give light traffic. Either way, each time a visitor - returning or not - views, or replies, it clocks up one more count.

I can understand, I think, where you're coming from but do remember that many just wish to vent their feelings, often very eloquently, in their initial posts and then for them, that's enough. At the very least, forums such as this one are primarily about spreading a sense of awareness and providing a point of reference. It's really then up to individuals as to how they wish to respond from then on. If any decide to become activists in the true sense of the word, then that's a bonus.
Guys aren't used to, or, possibly expected to, communicate their feelings simply as men speaking about men's issues. Either that, or many just take on board what they read here and elsewhere, and arm themselves with that knowledge for the future. I guess you'll just have to give it time Disaffected.

I remember Disaffected saying the same thing not too long ago, and I'll reiterate now roughly what I said then:
You want some discussion and debate?
Then why don't YOU instigate it!?!
Or at the very least, partake more yourself
It is overtly hypocritical to demand more men participate when you yourself seldomly do so
In short: practice what you preachSome feminists never die, they just smell that way
More from me at:
I wouldn't want to be accused of accusing one who has accused me of wrongdoings... but the guest post has the hallmark language & preocupation with culture wars... and even shares the same IP address.
But, it may still be a coincidence.. somehow.. maybe..

It is, in a way, quite a compliment, that he enjoys our writings so much that satirical demands have to be made to satisfy his lust for it.
Nonetheless, it doesn't influence to sit here more than i already do.
As a rule, I devote more energy to mental preparation
than to actual typing on the screen. In some cases I like to mull
things over for as much as 48 hours before I finally sit down at the
computer to wrassle with BBCode, nuanced phrases, subtle chains of ideas, and suchlike critters...

Man, Fidelbogen, you and all them 8-cylinder words! :-DWhen dealing with Feminists, no2fembots sez, "Stop being such an asshat and grow some 'nads, boy!"
Useful StuffQuote from no2fembots
critical thinker" (and I'm still learning!):
E-Prime -- A version of the English language which omits (or at
least subjects to intentional control) the use of the verb 'to be'. I think it
is a very useful thing to know about. See the following:
Semi-colons -- These little buggers are powerful when
they're gainfully employed. If not, they're like the unemployed in
general. So, give them a job! ;-)
Something Cool -- Well, I think it is, anyway..
