He had many amusing commentaries about various things, and continues to do so on Facebook. Among those I saved include:

It was maybe a little past its heyday, but it was still a well populated and viable place to interact with other festival goers. But the last update killed it off. And they don't care.


There was already a clear drop-off to be fair, comparing my posts in 2010/11 (or even 2012/13 if we want to skip out the early argument filled years) to 2014/15 shows a massive decline, and similar ones could be seen of many of the top 20-30 posters (with a good quarter or so leaving completely between 2012 and 2015.

However, you could easily argue we were starting to get some 'new blood' in just when they killed it off, which was certainly a real let down. :(
