I seem to recall that Ran's forum had some reasonably good activity until he decided he would rather have a subreddit instead. So instead of linking directly here he linked to a page where he even now says "Some people think it [the forum] has gone bad" and made it sound like he no longer wanted to have anything to do with it. I think it was Ran who thought it went bad because one guy replaced all his old posts with the word "Peace." People used to discuss the issues here that Ran brought up in his blog, but it felt at the time he just wanted the forum to go away. Instead of a wasteland of a forum and an annoying subreddit, what he should have is a normal blog where people can comment.
