This whole thing has been both so tragic and so farcical that I just don't even know what to say...
I'm frankly surprised to discover how much I care. I've been here for a long time, but only recently stumbled into Regular status, a circumstance I blame entirely on Rob's Safe Thread – it just sucked me in, and when I came out the other side I was a different person.
I was genuinely surprised to discover the hidden recesses of the BBS revealed only to regulars, but I don't think it ever made me feel like I was missing out on something before that. On the other hand, it did ultimately make me feel more engaged with the site and the people of the BBS, so I can see how some might feel left out. I'm having a hard time imagining what I'd feel like if I'd learned of it only after the fact.
Either way, it seems clear that tomorrow will definitely be different than yesterday, so I guess all I can do is try to stay positive1 and see what happens next. I hate having my cheese moved as much as the next person, but that's life, I suppose.
1 Which is a much more daunting proposition than you might at first imagine. I mean, have you guys been watching the news, lately? ;)
