Well, I can't speak for everyone, but there are three (Relatively) highly active groups that I know of personally - the Myreque (which I run), The Swordpoint Coalition (which has a lot of people, 20+ judging by their discord) which is active quite commonly. Swordpoint's a mercenary group so there's quite the mix of content there. And there's finally Hynafield, which is elven rp! Currently run by Merca, if that means anything to ya.
Swordpoint's got a lot of active members and a discord chat (which helps the liveliness of the group), and they normally have a lot of people on at once, so...I'd say there's activity!
Thoughtcrime doesn't entail death. Thoughtcrime IS death.
