I regulaly visit TSZ, and I would say his article is more about the fact that over the years the number of writers who contribute here has significantly diminished, and those that do are prolific.
Now prolific can be good as in the case of Dickens, or Orwell, or it can be anoying as hell, as in the case of Hamm, or Ray Comfort.
This ‘starvation’ he suggests also includes the repliers, the posters of comments. These people are predictable in their regularity of authorship. The names never change, and with the recent loss of BA77, for whatever reason, a significant voice has once again been lost to the cause. (I hope BA77 is healthy, and still with the living.)
Also I think his ‘starvation’ metaphor includes counter voices. As largely it is only me, and Seversky who regularly turn up, it is not really adebate about ID, so much as a, ‘chat’, amongst acquiantances.
He also suggests posters such as myself and Seversky should abandon our contributions, as we are merely shoring up, an imminent collapse.
He also suggests that the ‘heavy hitters’, of ID Dembsky etc, have long since seen the writing on the wall.

The OP is amusing, especially this line:
|We had no idea we [UD] were that hard a habit to kick. Could we get rebranded as a social vice?|
Yes, and the CBEBs are a help group for the afflicted.
It is fun to dip into the various threads to watch cluelessness at work in the hands of the confident exponent. - Soapy Sam (so say we all)
