Is Lugnet dying?

Back in the day, Lugnet was THE place for AFOLs to meet on-line. LEGO builders from around the world met there to discuss their hobby, share creations, plan gatherings, and generally chit-chat with eachother. In the past couple of years, tons of other sites have grown up to rival Lugnet for the AFOL's attention - forum sites, individual LUG sites, blogs, podcasts, etc. At the same time there have been various administrative issues and public spats on Lugnet. As a result, some think that Lugnet is dying. Here's Nelson's commentary in vig form. Personally, I think the proliferation of sites has been a very good thing. I think there is much more LEGO talk on-line these days, and our hobby's visibility has grown beyond a small geek niche to gain recognition in many widespread internet communities. However, I do think there was a lot of good to having one forum where fans of all different LEGO themes, from all around the world, could come together and chat. What do you think? Is Lugnet dying? If so, is that a death-knell to the community, or a springboard for new creativity?
