When someone sent us a link to the New Yorker forum, we were excited-- we expected dozens of threads filled with high-minded discussion. After all, the New Yorker is arguably the best magazine published in America-- would we expect anything less from their website? Unfortunately, yes: their "forum" turns out to be about 85% spam, and the remaining threads seem to be pretty dead. Someone needs to clean this place up! [Reminder: Gothamist also has a forum-- and bonus: it's reasonably spam free!]
