I understand ebb and flow.  Ebb and flow happens in literal communities as
well.  You will see more "For Sale" signs during some parts of the year than
others.  But if your community is broken -- say, there's no garbage
collection or no water -- regardless of how great the neighbors are, people
will leave.  I think we're in a similar situation here.  This list (the
community hub) is broken.  I don't think it will die, but perhaps it will
get thinner.

By the way, I make analogies more for my benefit, not to insult anyone's
intelligence. :)
