Below are posting stats of probably the best chat forum on the subject of the Lizzie Borden case.
Yes, I’m talking about Stefani Koorey’s forum – the same forum for which she has blocked me from joining and inevitably removes my party mask of contrived digital personas when I have been discovered after slipping in under the radar.
Now look at these stats:
|Number of new posts by month|
The steady decline of posts began in April of 2007 when the 4 digit count was less than the same month of the prior year. And since April of 2008, all but one month has been in 3 digits. And we just had a wallapaloosa of a Lizzie Borden month this past October and yet only 370 posts. Wassup?
I attribute the recent reductions due to the lack of postings from sister Kat Koorey who, when not asking to “cite your source” was meticulous in assuring accurate information on the multitude of threads. Kat deserves credit as being the chief contributor (and top poster) to the quality of information. Now that she’s MIA, the post count and quality has subsided.
Another contributing factor to the steady decline, IMHO, is attributable to the more recent absence of Shelley Dziedzic who also was a great contributor to the Forum’s content. Her bright and breezy posts, not to mention the glorious photos, was a delight to all. I’m sure she is missed by the 15 or so hard core regulars. Shelley was the #2 top poster.
The point is, no matter what lack of, er, ah, cordiality exists between Stef and me, the Lizzie Borden forum is a terrific source of Bordenia, provided you have the determined patience of a Grasberg miner.
I would encourage all eager to learn more – novice or scholar – to check out those threads and archives. You don’t have to join unless you want to actually post, but you certainly can take advantage of the riches of that mine without joining. The rewards are plentiful and the journey exciting.
