I agree but it’s difficult these days to get the same level of involvement as there was at MJ. Then again, MJ was also struggling towards “the end”.
When I joined in 2006 (I think) it wasn’t unusual to get upwards of 30 or more comments on a song. Before it died you were lucky to get into double figures!
I guess when MJ started it was a brave new world of home recording and maybe people eventually got bored. I know a few who posted regularly but gradually dropped out for one reason or another.
