Hi, guys. Don’t panic and don’t fret.
I haven’t left the community, nor have I been scared off. At the moment, I simply don’t have the time or the interest to deal with a handful of petty twits who want to use the community I created to drum up traffic for their site and have chosen personal attacks on me and attacks on the policies by which I run the place as their way to do it.
It just isn’t worth my time.
I will note that the next one of the nitwits who chooses to act like an asshole on the way out the door is going to be first poster pinned in perpetuity on a brand-new members-only Slamming-The-Door board, with a Crit the Crap contest featuring his or her exit post. If you must deal with assholes, you might as well have some fun with them. It beats being angry.
But right now, I don’t have the time to deal with them at all. So you guys get some writing done of over there, and I’ll get some writing done over here. And I’ll drop in sooner or later to say hello.
