After reading mostly all about the recent drama - - how long has this has been going on? Does it seem for some time now;...eh? Since you are the new moderator and by reading your messages you do feel like there has been a flood of newbies per say? More so than the average January per the last 5-10 years - (?) I am thinking they will eventually poof disappear; and leave those of us alone whom choose to be here? (sry run-on sentence) as it is home to the most people it seems as I have read many many many different people whom feel they receive the intellect that they exactly came here to receive. I hope it does not change for those people. Like many others have said though it does appear that there is a lizard lounging in the forums. Which sucks to that one highest level. Glad that I am new; bad timing per say on how I found this spot and what has / is happening. There is hope for a bright future is my only ... way to perceive things here. Thank you for letting me in; my time is desperate and challenging to say the least.
I can give you answers to some of the questions. Recent drama started with NYT article, few days before you joined the forum. Previous drama happened about a year ago, and resulted in forum moving from sanctionedsuicide.com to sanctioned-suicide.net.
There are no average values for the last 5-10 years, because forum is nowhere near that old. You can see current number of members on the first page. I haven't paid attention to it, but I think someone mentioned an increased number or registration requests. I certanly got that impression just from reading the forum.
