Is It Just Me Or Are There Others......

Is it just me or are there other out there thinking how stupid and banal most of these threads are? I mean a year ago there seemed to be some interesting context in some of the threads now it all seems superficial and dumb.

OP, I don't know who's changed - me or the threads - but I agree they have a different feel than a year ago...

Maybe new audience since PT went celebrity in people mag and GMA. I personally like the variety, although I wish the teenagers would get out of here.

No, it's not just you. It is totally crazy around here and worthless anymore. I am not quite sure why I check it, lol. Bickering, fighting, arguing into cyberspace over stuff that has nothing to do with weight loss, health, etc... Not fun!

i agree. no offense to those teenagers who are trying to gain support with tackling what could be a life-long challenge, but some of the topics and comments are way too juvenile and/or uninformed. it's a drag to open a thread, become interested, and check back only to read a bunch of name-calling, self-righteous comments. either the average age of members has become younger or many of the new posters are just ignorant. i think it's the former.

GMA seemed to add the jesus crowd to the mix. PT started out as a craigslist crowd, which was much more interesting.

10:10, I didn't think about GMA. I did think "geesh, a lot of 'Christians' read 'People', I had no idea". Maybe 'Us Weekly' is for the agnostic set?

There's nothing wrong with Christains per se, they just tend to not be lesbian Vassar graduates who surf craigslist. And thus less "colorful"
