You don't seem to be a regular member. Maybe a troll? >Non-binary usenet in general appears to be being used less and less. We're all supposed to be 'blogging' nowadays. Blogs are annoying to use because you have to troll through so much content to find things of interest. At least with newsgroups and forums it's fairly trivial to skip over things that are not interesting and go straight for the 'meaty' bits. 8-) >My guess is that it's a combination of faster and faster connections >combined with readily available, "pretty" forums. Probably part of it, but the forums need to be good quality without the overbearing 'steering' of content for a certain purpose like what happens with the forums at a certain saabnet website. At least here in this free and open newsgroup all discussion is welcomed no matter if someone else happens to agree or disagree with a point of view. That's the true value of newsgroups, and it's what forum sites should do to but unfortunately at least one has commercial interests as a higher priority than allow free, open access and discussions.
