Why don't new members stay?

I've noticed that most new members on here only post a couple of times before disappearing.

Why don't they stay?

Some of them just lose interest naturally. We've had people register, say hi, & then vanish forever since time immemorial.
Some of them are spammers who get banned right away.
Some of them don't see the 24/7 365 activity that they're accustomed to on other sites & leave because of that.
And part of it is that we veterans have become less active overall as well, as many of us have taken on more offline responsibilities.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

Also CaptHayfever eats one every so often, and that always scares at least a couple others off.

Hey, I'm not judging---------I wouldn't dare you to do it if I didn't think it was funny.

They'd rather be tic-tokoholics and eat avocado toast. Then have a meaningful discussion on fast food rankings.
