It seems that the moderator The Destroyer has lost all interest in participating on the site. His last post was on June 16, 2019. Considering the fact, he is one of the most actively participating users on the site, this is extremely strange.

And, he had not post any comment too between March 22 and September 22, 2020. Regarding, his moderation activities, I can not comment anything, as most of those are hidden from us.

So, the question is to him and other similar users (like Tejaswee and many many others) - Do you guys have lost all interest in participating in this site? If so please proclaim the same here so that the rest of us also can decide whether wasting our time and effort on the site, like how it is now, is at all worthy or not? The site is on the decline, with few agenda driven users dominating the site, whose motive is not to spread knowledge about Hinduism or learn about the same, but to demean it in any possible manner.

It is due to users like The Destroyer, Tejaswee, Triyugi Narayan Mani, Swiftpushkar and many others that this site has developed over the years into such a great site on Hinduism. If you guys have decided that that is enough or if you feel no interest at all in participating then it will be worthwhile to proclaim it openly here. My question is to all such users and not just the specific ones I mentioned in the post.

    Good post. If old timers have no interest in this site and with agenda driven users dominating the site, I am feeling of leaving the site. Let me await the replies of old timers. Sep 28 '20 at 8:02

    Yes looks like 99% of them have lost all interest and hope seeing how the site is right now. @SrimannarayanaKV

  • Sensing this decline, I had already posted my answer under my own question. Now that you are sharing similar views, I think we have reached a state to say Good bye to this site. @Rickross Sep 28 '20 at 8:10

    oh ok, looks like you are talking about the atheistic answers here, and I agree with your stance on that one.. however, i believe @SrimannarayanaKV is talking about Vaishnavas 'agenda', so it looks like you two have a different idea of which 'sect' is agenda-driven.

    @Srimannarayana K V. None of my comments under that answer were deleted either by me or moderator. All I did was either to defend the path I follow or tried to explain how those quotes hurt Sri Vaishnavas. And nowhere I have interacted with you. Indeed I agreed to quote such citations. What you are saying is strange,fortunate that I've accidentally saw your comment.

    @srimannarayana kv - I don't get your passive aggressive whining of threatening to quit the site as seen above and comment in here hinduism.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/1983/… Yes mods may not have a bias of action but main issue is that you feel slighted by a sect because you perceive they vote en masse against your posts that are grounded in esotericity as compared to scriptures .

    @srimannarayana kv - Not so long back you considered backing up answers with scriptures sectarian as can be made out from comments under hinduism.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/1923/… You have openly stated that you don't consider Puranas as valid sources . Members just flag or downvote and move on. No one is seen canvassing against you in meta for disregarding Puranas or saying mods are biased because they don't suspend a member who vilifies Puranas as sectarian literature Sep 30 '20 at 16:01

    Hi! Rickross I'm sorry that I'm not posting any answers or comments since long, but I'm not completely inactive.. I do actually visit the main site in some time intervals to see the types of questions and answers posted nowadays (and they do not feel that great)... It might not be good to leave the site completely (as per my view)... some days, months, years we might be dormant.. I think we should have discussion in some chat room regarding how we should proceed further and how to further maintain the site.. Sorry for replying late.. I didn't use to visit meta.. so just saw your question now..

    Hi thanks@Tejaswee Your points are all valid and I agree with all of them. I also don't like the idea of completely leaving the site. Taking breaks for some months is my way. :D

    @Rickross Hi! Thank you for considering me worthy as a moderator... But currently I'm sorry to say that I won't be able to handle this moderation (due to other work loads, exams etc...) Actually I request you to nominate yourself for the Mod post if it is possible for you...

According to site statistics, the member and the moderator The Destroyer was last seen on September 22 at 15:28.

If I remembered correctly, I was invited by him during 2015 with name Anil. As age is telling upon my memory, I don't know whether I remembered his name correctly or not. He himself stated so, under this question - Why is Hinduism SE not expanding?

It was me who suggested you to visit this site. – The Destroyer♦ Nov 18 '15 at 13:28

As it was he, who brought me to this site, I think I should say Good Bye to this site, by mentioning his name.

Good Bye.

    No need to be in hurry. He might be having some issues. He is still the Moderator, so he has not left the site. So no need for you to leave the site either.

  • The Destroyer is active again. So, you should also return isn't it? I'm not sure whether you will get to see my comment or not but I hope you do and reconsider your decision of leaving the site :)
