Boards where lot of arguments take place, generally in bad taste, are always appealing to baser instincts -- may that be sensual or intellectual. Mirabai has correctly pointed this out. That is also the reason of popularity of war monger politicians like George Bush etc. Devotees who do have the patience to pour out their real experiences (against ego urge to show off) are mature/maturing devotees. They do not hanker for novelty at any cost.
You may shout again and again that the world has become easier. It is not the experience of majority of common people.
Then, you are very much a part of this forum and you also have some responsiblity, if the forum is dead.
If you knew Tao or had you read Gita properly you would have known that what is night for ignorant is day for the enlightened. Serenity is different from deadness and turmoil. It is confidence.
Young brides are often very impatient and tend to change the arrangement of furniture to light up their life. This kind of restlessness is often a reflection of internal drabness (death).
This internal drabness I suspect in you. I hope this honesty of mine will appear as full of life to you.
Om Namah Shivaya

That which is without letters (parts) is the Fourth, beyond apprehension through ordinary means, the cessation of the phenomenal world, the auspicious and the non-dual. Thus Om is certainly the Self. He who knows thus enters the Self by the Self.
