    But there's something I don't understand and it feels as though I missed something big.  Where are all the people who used to post here all the time whose names I recall as much as MaryScott's? I left for awhile and upon returning don't recognize many people at all.

    Just wondering if it's me or something changed.

    •  I'm not sure. (none)
            I've been here, on and off for a while and it does seem every now and then there is an influx of new people.
            But a lot of the original posters are gone. To "where" I don't know, but it's a good question.  

           

    •  From what I understand, every once in a while (none)
      differences in opinion and debate here degenerate into fierce polemic, leading to a periodic (physiological?) flight of brilliant minds from this site. Some wander back later on, some continue to lurk but don't say anything, and most migrate to other blogs, often starting up their own.

      I think the last hemorrhage, of mostly female Kossacks, occurred as a result of the infamous "pie fight" diaries and kos's comments (example).

      Can someone confirm this for me?

      Personally, I feel very sad when it happens.

      •  Thank you both (none)
        I have no idea. It must just be a transitory phase for DailyKos. Admittedly jarring at first, but I love the comfort of familiarity - and the passion of people like MaryScott.
