Nah, maybe a small percentage, but most of it can't be attributed to Trump being elected.
Now the entire political atmosphere has definitely gone to shit in the last couple years, but I don't think that has caused much more than a small percentage of the problem either.
I have noticed a lot more ban hammers being dropped. While the majority of that has to do with TOS violations, a lot of those people were being, shall we say, obnoxious. We can all be passionate about certain subjects, but face it, we had some real assholes running amok. No need to name names.
People have lives. Jobs, family, things to do. I usually drop by once or twice a day, but I may go weeks without making a post. Sometimes I'm just too tired to engage. Sometimes I don't see anything I want to comment on. Sometimes I see things I know I should just steer clear of because my inner asshole will take over.
I don't think it has to do with any one particular thing. It's the ebb and flow of life itself.
