Yes, I miss the activity. I don't think the problem is just a migration to Facebook. I think Blues-L offline for quite awhile at one point and the list has changed servers too many times.
Also, I shared some things that I'd found through Google alerts. However, I just got a lot of grief from people griping about the stories being behind a paywall. So I stopped.
Most subscribers didn't post regularly. It was mostly diehards who posted everyday with the majority lurking.
Technology keeps shrinking everything into increasingly narrow niches -- look at our politics -- and people spend less time engaged with their surroundings (unless it's the game on a big TV at the bar.) I miss Blues-L because you could keep up on who was touring, where the gigs were, etc. But apparently, there are now fewer gigs and very few tours. And I miss Chuck Nevitt.
