Disappearances explained

The strange thing is, the more active you are on the discussion board, the more likely you will disappear from this place. 

I tried to find an explanation to this phenomenon. What I think is participating in discussions is like mental fuel and comments are like oxygen. 

The more oxygen is being added to fuel, the faster fuel get burned. On the other hand, if there is no oxygen, fuel is not burning at all and in the end just vaporizes to nowhere. 


Any thoughts?

Some of them did talk to support and were told they would not be allowed back. And while they can open new accounts, all their old contribution would be lost then, plus such double accounts are often hunted down and closed. But yes, some of them may be just disappointed and not want to come back. Can't blame them.

Yes, but on the other side, if you are reluctant to communicate your points of view, to the public you will be rewarded less accordingly. You may as well launch a sort of less invasive theme such as where are you from, what color do you like most...etc. These topics would not get you into any trouble but that in a way brings less benefits to your learning, much less than some other issues such as "what do you think of current American president" or "what do you think of current immigration policy in your country" and so forth.  

In terms of your theory about fuel and oxygen, well I am not in all that agreement with yours. Generally, I do believe if you write more at this place, you will be rewarded more from other's responses, which is a sort of fertilizer to enrich your literacy given this website is made for language learning. But you must be very cautious over your wording not to be offensive to other speakers.
