When talking about options, there's things we can fix, and things we can't.

Social media it clearly outside of our grasp. However, it is possible to make the layout more accessible. A return to a more lean configuration can't hurt and likely would help.

I don't play as much as I used to, but it is devilishly difficult to find what's going on with the current subdivision. Even my relatively few interests require a lot of navigation that I shouldn't have to do.

As to 'guest bots,' I'm sure that's what is happening, but I also know that there must be real people because I still sell a copy of rules from time to time and my web site gets referrals from here.
