Not sheepish, but individ-ewe-al

That all makes sense. I probably ought to do some sort of count rather than sticking my finger in the wind, but I'm pretty sure I have substantial fraction of the people and the activity from LJ around the mid 2000s.
I do think Cambridge people have always, even way back when, been more centered around LJ than Oxford people. I've always had a foot in both camps and latterly, well, for a start I'm dating four (!) people from the Cambridge circle that was always highly connected on LJ.
Part of the difference in our experiences is that on LJ 2003 to 2009, and also on DW 2009 to now, I've had the habit of circling (friending) random people who seem interesting, as well as personal friends I know independently of blogging. So I had several dozen such people to read back on LJ, and I have several dozen random interesting people now on DW, and they're not the same people for the most part but it's enough to make my network feel really lively.
And it's true there are a lot of people who post a few times a year rather than multiple times a week, but I'm counting that as active. And lots of people, including yourself, who I totally assumed had long drifted away, but you've been paying enough attention to delete from LiveJournal due to the TOS problems. Having all of those show up on my reading page at once makes everything seem lively. I think others had the reciprocal experience, everybody was posting about moving here, and therefore the site seemed active and busy enough to be worth continuing to post beyond that initial hello world post.
