Longest for me was over a year

Um... I've been a member since 2010 or 2011... and... I've gone as much as 6 months in between spurts. Never so much intentionally, I just get so much going on that GaG drops lower on my list of things I reasonably have time to participate in. And usually when I come back it's like a whole different place!0

A year or so. I was not active and didn't post in that time, but I still dropped by sometimes. I probably shouldn't have come back, and should leave again.
The place has gotten a lot worse in my opinion. It seems like the original purpose has gotten lost in all the spam, chit chat, and trolling. Nothing wrong with chit chat, but it shouldn't take over to the point that legit questions don't even get seen. The trolling should be completely stopped. It's also gotten a lot crazier.1
