Ah, you bring up peanuts---Anyone know where I can find raw peanuts? Hubby loves them, and I used to find them in groceries back in IL but haven't come across any here. Thanks!

Ha! I have more influence on these threads than I give myself credit for! 50% of the last 20 responses have been about peanuts!

No matter what it is called it shouldn't be happening while working for an employer. They are not paying their employees to do that and my thought is more employees are more on edge about trying to keep their jobs so they are less likely to be abusing company property and time. This in part may be the reason why some people feel there is less activity. Less time equals less activity.

I know that many members get tired of logging on here just to find that previously-banned trolls are back (again). People like that, who have no respect for the rules of the forum, really ruin the site for everyone.

Many enlightened employers have internet usage policies that permit reasonable personal use of the internet during working hours. (In the same way they might permit reasonable personal phone calls, etc.) I appreciate your sentiment, and you can certainly make that your policy for your business and the employees who work for you, but it's really not for you to dictate what should or shouldn't be happening in every work place.

I can see why "personal time" on the computer could be an issue with employers. Spending a few minutes on Facebook, usually turns into 30 minutes for me! However, since I'm self-employed, I don't have anyone telling me what I can and can't do!

My husband has had a few employees that have had to be "reminded" that spending time on personal emails and Facebook is not what their jobs are! He has actually deleted Facebook from the computers in the office, which I think is understandable when employees are not getting their work done.

As for why there are less posters on city data...I have many clients that I refer to this website. I find that once they have their questions answered and once they have purchased their new home, they don't necessarily remain. After all, this is more of a relocating website. Some may pop up from time to time to ask questions about restaurants, etc., but the majority that used this site to gather information about relocation find that once they have moved here, just don't post as often.
