And we can scream and rage about everything
Then get back in the box that they keep us in
As the great land stretches on
Where the endless hopes are born
All caught in a false dawn that lasts forever
And the great land stretches on.










I used to be in charge of... something... Actually, I was an editor and admin from 2001 onwards. Then I was the lead admin from October 2008 to July 2014. Then came the time to pass the mantle.

Welcome to my life, brother.

Here's the deal, folks, because some people seem to care more than is healthy: I am no longer actively participating in the site's management. I make myself available to my successor and his staff in case they find my thorough knowledge of the site's history and operations useful, and that's just about it. I am in every sense a civilian. This also means that, if you have a beef with the management, it's no longer my problem. If you have a beef with me as a manager, well, guess what, I've retired and am no longer your problem. If you have a personal problem with me that you can't get over, keep it to yourself and go see someone. Getting worked up, stalkery, and generally psychotic over some dude who used to run a web site is bad for you and makes no sense.
