Just curious what the demographics are here. Seems there are few people that are beyond 5 years, but I could be wrong.

I think you are correct. Only a few seem to post here frequently after two years.
We should probably consider that over five years ago there were fewer people using this type of internet activity.
I hope they are well and just don't feel the need to log-in and/or comment!
Thanks for all you are doing. Your Friend,

Axeman, did you check one of the poll choices?

Dutch, your signature line is key - about educating men to get tested.
I think another thing that is key is that hopefully some/many of us will stick around past 2 years, to give encouragement and hope and information to those who are less than 2 years here. I think it can be easy to get a little down reading what we are all going through, when there are few voices to say "I've been through it".
