Hence why alternative imageboards do get some semblance of lifeline sometimes, some people stop being like that in some situations although they might revert back after a while.

I wonder who's behind this post, still some of the observations are correct, at this point we are a niche in the by-now niche 4cham who only gets visitors in the form of "edgy but not really" people and still only minority of those post at all as most of them are lurking herds that enter once in a while for a short period of time to either check news/trends or fap.
They use it as a visual aggregator rather than a interactive forum, those herds are the kind to only refresh the first page and gauge what "the people" think about some current event or thing; most of us here use the system to post our thoughts and/or contribute with our personal tastes/finds along with (very) usually checking the catalog when finding a new board.
It's really not so much about finding new users, it's about finding new posters
and the constant type of one which, if we were to believe that infamous thread about some 4c mods, there's actually few as most are bots or paid shills.
Why are you sticking your ugly nose here anyways? you like the smell, don't lie
