People will keep going there out of habit and out of laziness. It's like how Marmot's Hole gets loads of traffic in the comments section even when nothing new has been added for some time. Inertia. One reason I frequent your site, link back to your site, and write posts based on things I saw on your site is that you act as if you are the engine of your own blog. Marmot is busy with a lot of stuff, I realize, and he does (reasonably) wonder if you will be keeping things at the same pace, say, three or four years from now. But I know that I'm going much stronger than I was three or four years ago. Of course, there was a two-year "retirement" period where I only put up ten posts, but still. Anyway, that inertia will make it hard for something to supplant Dave's. A lot of people want that vile bitch fest, but that's not something I would want to replicate elsewhere.
Might I suggest http://www.expatkorea.com/bbs/index.php ?The shower of halfwits that make Dave's such a rage-inducing cuntopia need not apply. (You know who you are...)
As it is, Expats already experiences its influx of the lame, the halt, and those who are already tired of the rabble at Dave's. It's a good alternative...however many find that it's not the sanitized Orwellian netopia they're used to and quickly scamper back to the comfort of their swear filter and jack-booted mods. Do check it out...new blood is usually welcome.
