What keeps me coming back?
It took me two seconds to think about that one. For one thing I like the topics and discussions here ... I don't post as much as I should, but I think that there is a seed of the black vault within each and every one of us. You can find information, thanks to John and the FOI, about anything on the government, military, science and technology. I like leafing through all the old documents.
What I would have recommended is that there should have been a transfer of membership over the years and through all the changes that the BV has gone through. This would bonify the use of the Black Vault as a serious research or serious study utility. Although that numbers do not account for anything really, the "appearance" of having a "great following" would have offered more creedence to John and the Black Vault. Now the BV has only 680 as of April 23, 2009 where once it had 50,000, so I have to ask is it a step back?
I believe with all the posts and discussions being basically deleted has left the membership feeling robbed of all thier work and contribution to the BV. There are no longer members with 20,000 posts which to a third of thier lives to establish. So a reminder to John, members have also contributed thier share in making the Black Vault.
With that said we all have to start from scratch and change can be sometimes be a good thing, so lets start posting
