It is because that single use is no longer of much interest to the userbase.

hardly any of the regular posters there are actively downloading anything... it's a Led Zeppelin coffee house, now, rather than a music exchange site.

I'd say it was 90% music downloading and 10% discussion outside the torrent threads 5 years ago. Now it is likely exactly opposite of those figures.

The difference is that TTD is still about music sharing and R-O has evolved into mainly a discussion forum since everyone already has all the Led Zeppelin they will ever need after 7 years of trading it digitally.
Not saying there is anything wrong with that.. that is just how it is.
