    Wow, Just had a bit of nostalgia reading some old posts. It has been over 10 years since I have been posting in Digital Point.

    Whats everyone been up to? A lot has changed since I have been here last. Not a lot of you will probably remember me but hey everyone moves on.

    Just a journey down memory lane. Those were the good old days of internet marketing. Is anyone still in the game?

    Cheers

    Mostly, it was much more active with many more members posting regularly. Traffic and participation has tapered off over the years, mostly due to people having other ways to communicate online, in my opinion. However, this can still be a very useful forum for people to learn and exchange ideas. It is just a much slower process these days.

    I came aboard in 2011. Back then the place was a madhouse with scammers, spammers, con artists, trolls, and clowns who had somehow learnt how to use a keyboard and claimed that they were now suddenly "SEO experts".
    Then came the 3 like established thing and the spammers fell away like they were dropped collectively off a cliff. Then of course came Twitter, and Facebook began to take off like a rocket and things slowed down here.

    Truthfully I prefer this version of DP over the old one. Things are much better regulated and there is frankly....more overall sanity.
