Hi Adrian,
This is just my obviously biased opinion, but people not participating (not
pointing out their camps on Canonizes) is because they are making bad
arguments that don't stand up to better argued positions.  And their
decrease in making their bad bleating and tweeting arguments, is evidence
of low quality. John Clark, for example, never canonized his noisy
opinion.   And to me, that says a lot.  To me this kind of stuff is a sign
that people finally recognize that they aren't the expert they initially
assumed they were, when faced with powerful emerging consensus arguments.
While good arguments tend to earn other supporters and promoters they are
proud of (more likely to be shared), bleating and tweeting tends to self
censor, all in my opinion, a good thing.
