In response to the post about all the good people leaving, I give you this comforting point of view.
Now I know it's hard when someone leaves, if you even notice, but try to remember they have gone to a better place. A place where golden gates open upon their arrival and all the cm'ers of the past are there to greet them. A place where everyone is nice and no one utters a hurtful word. There they post for all eternity. These posts will not inspire hatred and bashing but instead shall be acknowledged exclusively with high fives and pats to the back.
Maybe you don't believe in such a place but instead that they are always with you. I don't mean with you in your heart. I mean there with you physically in your posts under a different screen name or using the anon feature.
Or maybe they change screen names as a sort of internet karma, having to leave and come back each time they fuck up until they reach cm enlightenment. At that point they can finally post and reply without giving away their entire personal lives or turning in to a train wreck for us all to watch.
Yes I know it's so hard when we lose someone. I hope this post has brought your solace in your time of despair.
