Probably more and more sass from weirdos wearing down the novelty of having your own communtiy, too. 
If global warming is real then how come I just felt this chill down my spine?

My guess is that they migrated to more modern social platforms.

Do tey interact on those other platforms? I know Steve occasionally responds to comments on his blogs, but anything besides that?

The only specific interaction I've seen was when I sent an email asking if the store was ever coming back I actually got an email direct from Jay saying it was going to be a few months while they re-worked it.

Steve does interact over on his Neurologica blog quite a bit.

With kids these days it's all about the twitters, the instagrams and the telegrams.

Did the Reddit thing ever take off?

I thought body language had progressed to the point where the kids could now communicate entirely via sexting.

I didnt realise that was the case.
Just upped to damn dirty ape in appreciation.

I upped to Cyborg because I didn't like being called a damn dirty ape. I have no idea what a Cyborg is, so I don't mind being called that. But I get so much enjoyment and education from the show that it's worth the $12/month. OTOH when they offered some original artwork to members at one of the higher levels, I looked it up and decided not to subscribe at the $200/month level.

Do tey interact on those other platforms? I know Steve occasionally responds to comments on his blogs, but anything besides that?

Once when I had problems downloading the show, or something, I wrote to the SGU's general email and got a reply from Jay. And once when I wrote to the SGU's general email with a question related to what I thought might be medical pseudoscience, I got a reply from Steve. The was a pleasant surprise.

I too got a response from Steve once or twice via email. I once even ruined science or fiction by sending in a story recommendation which Steve was going to use :-P
