I haven't been around the forum for a while. If you're reading this and know that, well, "Hello". If not, that's cool too.
I am more than a little surprised that so much of the forum has seemingly hit the shitter, and I mean that only in the sense that there seems to be a real spam-cancer going on here. That sucks. I'm really surprised by it. I never thought of this site as being a junk magnet. The neon wilderness gets rough, huh?
Right now, I'm really bummed. So what? Big deal! I know, I know. But I'm just attempting a reasonable level of transparency, one I can handle. The last year I've been moving around and have spelunked into one vicinity for a little while. Real estate, blah blah...prior to the move, which came fairly suddenly to be honest as it could even be called 'flight', I had had enough of my submersion in an environment I hope to never see again. I wanted to get 'in', in order to write about some things and good lord...well, every pleasure has its price...but it was more price this time than pleasure...and what I discovered is unbearably ugly.
I hope to write about it but still don't have the distance I need. For now, I just wanted to explain, in my usual jagged way, my absence and that I hope to hear some of the folks I was used to seeing around here are still here and I hope they are doing very well. But trying to find you now, in pages and pages and pages now of SPAM, is very difficult. It's a very odd to feel like I've lost something that, technically, I never really had. I do think there was a friendly familiarity, and I recall it as being worthwhile and enjoyable. I hope it still exists. I was hoping to see it all ticking along as it had been before I was carried away by my meat life.
I will check back. If you see this signal flare, just drop a word on this thread, would ya? Anything. Anything at all because I seriously cannot believe right now that this site, Mr.Fry's site, would be obliterated by digital shitpimps.
