Re: Whither -- or Wither? Seriously....

I participated regularly for several years, but have not so much recently. So I am one of those to blame for the decline.
In my case, there are several factors Primarily, my weekends got much busier than they used to be. For the last few years I have been rehabbing houses on the weekends and it takes up all my time. When I get home I am too tired to riddle. Guess I'm getting old.
But a second factor was that i think the style of the riddles changed a lot. Each of us has a style we like. Personally, Kirk's is my favorite style, followed closely by Gary H. I grok their mindset and get their puns instinctively. I have a harder time with grasping what other folks they are going for. That is not a criticism of them, it is just that I am not on the same wavelength or something.
Some of the other folks that dropped off also had a similar style or mindset.
I used to participate in the F-riddles also, and of course those also faded away. Sigh. Remember back in the good old days, kiddos?
Everything has its season.
