Default TIO has become really, really boring.

It used to be a really lively forum, full of many alternate viewpoints, controversial comment, intelligent debate, argument, humour and, to entertain us, fruitcakes.

What has happened ?

Has everything worthy of Taking It Outside for been debated ?

The rise of arsebook and twitter probably. You can post whatever you like without moderation, unless you joke about blowing up an airport in the UK that is.
The social interaction/banter side of sites like this suffer, so it just ends up a site for asking 'moving abroad/price of lettuce' questions. That's only my take on it.

That said, I know some people on who here refuse to use social networking.

It always was. TIO is where people come for a rest when other parts of the forum get too obnoxious.

I know, it's too much effort. I keep track of enough things at work already.

Facebook is more "I've just had a cup of tea" - do people have political arguments on there?
