As a discussion venue, WebmasterWorld has more competition than it used to. It also has more competition SEO-wise. It used to be that if you were searching for something technical, you'd nearly always find a WebmasterWorld thread ranking well for the topic.
Many folks post thoughts and observations to their own blogs now, as well as Twitter, FB etc., that they'd have posted here in the past.
Even WebmasterWorld's owner says more on Twitter these days than he does on WebmasterWorld itself.
