Has it gone quiet on here

I now find I skim a lot of sources and that i think is the issue - the lack of time to digest and respond. Or maybe it is a cultural shift, we no longer appreciate the depth and quality of the debate instead we want a broader, yet shallower, coverage. Is it not the same in music? Once we had albums now I sample from iTunes, or skip around the Radio 6 programs on iPlayer - browsing and sampling rather than truly listening.

We have a favourite restaurant and have eat there about four times a year. Once we had a meal that was not up to standard - I later found out the owner/chef was away on a personal emergency. Now what if I was a blogger and decided to give this experience a bad review and publish it into the domain.
Anyone can be a blogger - not many have the intelligence to understand not only the complexities of fine dining (me included) and also the ratifications of what a bad review can have. I did find a blog from a couple of ladies from Surrey who wont give a bad public review. How refreshing.
Totally off topic - did anyone listen to BBC2 Graham Norton on Saturday morning? He had a listener with boring Foodie friends Had us in hysterics.
