Welcome back. I also remember you and your username. I was mostly a lurker back in those days. And yes, there are fewer posts in general nowadays - a lot of people are more active in FB now. Like you, I also want to distance myself a bit from FB - in my case, it's so I can make more productive use of the time I otherwise would have wasted on FB.
Again, welcome back. You might notice there's been a lot of changes in the forums, as well as in the discussions, etc.
