I've been noticing that too, but the disparity has gotten much wider since the change (though I don't have stats to back that up). I wonder, and correct me if I'm wrong) if it has something to do with ORG members not being able to post in the SD. Why read if you can't respond? Don't get me wrong, I completely understand Boss and GIK's wish/belief that the ORG is Redszone. It makes perfect sense to me, but I think if this trend continues we're not likely to see many nominations once the initial surge goes away.
I'll also echo the sentiments of others that the quality on the SD has taken a downward turn lately, but that could be because it's just so much more easy to see the bad without all the good. I think a lot of good posters that didn't have ORG access before are staying away until they can cool off (though I don't completely understand why they're so angry in the first place). I'm going to stick it out and see what happens. If nothing else, I'll have a giggle sorting through the pile of you suck, he sucks, we all suck posts.
