OK, i'll bite.....
What exactly is lame about the current CR?
Just an observation that as the demographic of CR
has changed/evolved over the last 12 months, so has the content. These days there are a lot more non-running threads (e.g. "What's your favourite animal?", "I love..."). Certainly when I first joined CR
I could not imagine anyone starting those kind of threads without getting shot down.
I guess at the end of the day there are only so many times you can post a "Help I've got ITB" or "How many kms do a pair of shoes last?" without someone simply pointing you to the last ten threads on the same topic. I know that from speaking to other CR
s that joined up a few years ago (including one moderator) many of them have lost interest and no longer feel a part of the CR
community. It used to be that the only really off-topic thread was the thread for hijackers but now it seems to be every other thread these days. Ironically even that thread was hijacked to the point where it became the CR
chat room (when we already had one).
Sometimes I feel like coming on here and starting a thread called "Running", sub heading "For people that want to talk about running". There seems to be more "Congratulations on reaching 1000 posts at the speed of light". Whatever happened to quality over quantity?
Anyhow, enough of my hijacking and non-running talk, time to go out and train... Rant over, but you did ask.
