Huh, that's pretty much what happened to my first year here. I kinda stayed there exclusively because nothing else really called to me. I eventually moved on to the Literature forum, had a couple posts in the Ever-After forum only to talk about bots, and just now recently dipped my feet into RP.
Other than for threads that are legitimate (Like this one) I never come to spam for any reason.
So from a personal standpoint what you are saying not only makes sense- it happened to me so it's not even a projection: It's a fact. Then again, I don't see why that would end up being a bad thing. The Bleed-forum (At least when I joined) was the second most popular branch of the forum and had a lot of shit to talk about.
There was no real NEED to branch out. After all, my Literature thread is based of Bleedman's exploits anyway. I still mainly come to this site for his shit and what other people say about his shit. The future of this site and its changes are basically the future of me being able to talk about shit that Bleedman does.
Damn when I really boil it down Bleedman and Bleedman related things and other things people say that relate to Bleedman in one way or another is pretty much everything I do here... well, except for the RP thread I'm starting.
Bleedman really is the life-blood of this site... none more so is that clear to me then now.
