RE: Preoccupation with Mercedesshop OD
I do believe that it does relate to critical mass. At a certain point, there are enough members on the board where you can actually have a give and take discussion over a short period of time.
Please note, however, that this "critical mass" has largely been lost over in OD because of the loss of political and religious posts, in combination with the loss of several vocal and intelligent posters.
At the present time, OD is similar to DD. You make a post and then return a couple of hours later to see what happened on the thread. Very little chance of a continuous interaction.
Over here, the situation is the same. Not enough people at any one time, on any given topic. Furthermore, the vehicle forums seem to be inhabited by people who are more concerned with wheels, tires, and paint, then with the actual mechanical repairs.
