Actually I agree with the OP. I remember being on here two to three years ago and this site was way more active. I used to have a hard time keeping up. Now Im in loads of games but still waiting around a lot - despite being quite busy IRL too.

I find real life has gotten more and more intense. My expenses have gone up, my paychecks have not. I've had to work more and more to keep up with the basics. Two years ago, I got to spend about 3-4 hours a week on the xbox, now, despite reducing expenses as much as possible, I haven't had time to do anything I can't do on my phone. The stress, and lack of stress-relieving activities, lack of food, and exhaustion have put me where I literally have trouble even focusing on tasks. I work 70-90 hours a week (up from about 60 per week 2 years ago), 2 cans of beans per day (down by half and dropped my supplmental greens), and the gap by which my expenses exceed my income has only grown. What's worse is that the only step I can take to further reduce my expenses is to become homeless.

The economic model is starting to hit a breaking point for society. The economy is relying more and more on the middle and upper classes at the moment, but as the lower classes continue to get squeezed harder, pressure will build until something breaks.

I even heard (unconfirmed just yet), that no one is even building homes for the market below 100k, yet there is no shortage of people who need cheap housing, including me and my family.

I doubt very much that people like me are rare. That likely has a serious impact on a website about nothing but entertainment.
