IS IT JUST ME OR...?

...has this site been really quiet lately ?
Seems like very few peeps have much to say or add - or is a case of 'no news is good news!'?

Personally, I have been so damn busy I haven't had much time to be posting. Things are well and truly back on track in terms of available work!

we should pay undesirables money to be sterilized. Did not our Fathers and Grand-Fathers fight overseas for 5 years to stop this sort of social policy?

the second highest goal scorer for Manchester United this season is own goal. Normally it is moody penalty. Is this a sign of progress in English Football?

I currently have 6 Bass Guitars and 4 Hard Cases for them. Yet I do not have 1 individual case that will fit all of the Basses.

This has happened on a few other sites as well.

You could put it down to facebook and the likes being the flavour of the month at the moment plus the economic down-turn has also diverted peoples' attention.

Sites and forums do have their wave crests and slumps. Some revitalise. some don't.

To me it seems that so long as a site gains quite a few reasonably level headed and regular members who get on well and enjoy each others' company plus has good moderation practices, then it will survive long-term. BPNZ seems like it's one of those.
