    The lack of traffic is no doubt because this forum is a pretty unfriendly place. Personally, if there's information I require I always try to find it elsewhere first, and only come here as a last resort

    The lack of traffic on biodiesel forums in general probably has a lot to do with the fact no one much makes or uses biodiesel any more.
    As a member of both this forum and the infopop forum which has historically been a much busier and more popular forum than this forum, in the last year or so our forum has become more active than the infopop biodiesel forum.

    I do not think the fact that we have an unpleasant fellow on the forum who keeps telling everyone how intelligent he is because of his PhD in Chemistry really has anything to do with the decline in participation on the forum.
