Hi, the last few years have seen a notable decrease in the number of posts to (cdos)


I am really surprised given the increasing and numerous terse impromptu posts from some of the more active regular members of this group (normally about spam, marketplace posts, bad design, or lacking a version number). Perhaps "omlet", arghhh don't mention his name, was responsible for the all-time posting highs!

Why are the number of posts to this newsgroup dropping off.

  1. Is is the anal behaviour of some members that are scaring others/ new members off
  2. Is is that current versions of Oracle and current developers/dba's require less help
  3. Is is that posters are using newsgroups other than cdos
  4. Is is that the Google stats wrong
  5. Something else

I appreciate it is more about quality than quantity but the quality of response in cdos doesn't seem to be improving either.
