@Azarddoze That guy with the cardboard sign screaming "The End is Nigh!" on the street corner.... it's like that. Just keep walking and enjoy the game like we all do.
The game population will ebb and flow and after almost 7 years it's living on borrowed time anyway. It contains enough mechanics to provide hundreds and hundreds of hours of fun(probably 1000s by now)and it serves and continues to serve it's purpose well.
Everything else are just meanderings of a bored doomsayer.
It's not comparable to other games. We stay for it's unique game play and customization. Content seems to come frequently enough. All is good.
