    Why did Photekut leave? As far as I know that was his choice. That is nothing the "new ownership" did.

    Look, I am not generally a fan of change either. But your preemptive negativity is going to make your future non-enjoyment of the site a self-fulfilling prophecy. Change is rarely as bad I fear it will be.

    Yeah but, he didn't leave because of the site being sold so your negativity on that is still unfounded. I agree that it sucks he left and it's shitty but it's not shitty for the reason you want it to be shitty.

    Lol. I meant did he post somewhere saying he was leaving?




    I can still send him a pm in a convo. He shows as an active participant. Dont make me text him. I'm too lazy, and tosh a drama queen.

    He messaged me yesterday morning asking to retire his account for personal reasons. I think the change in ownership just provided the right moment for him to reflect. I suggested going full-time lurker, but he felt he’d just end up getting sucked back in unless we disabled his account. Indeed a sad day, but as I said in a PM to others yesterday, I know it was the right move for him personally, so I am glad he was able to make that call. Not everyone is that responsible when real life comes calling. I will definitely miss him around here but I have a lot of respect for his decision.

    First they came for RayP, but I didn’t speak up because I am not a koont.

    Then they came for Sprout, but I didn’t speak up because I am not a highly intelligent human-vegetable hybrid.

    Then they came for gifs, but I didn’t speak up because the gifs started working again 15 minutes later.

    Then they came for Photekut, but they didn’t really because he technically left the site for other, undisclosed reasons and he may come back one day or maybe not so I didn’t speak up because that’s all I have to say about that.

    It’s safe to remove the one of part. Since @Patrick left he’s been the valedictorian of this bitch no question about it.


    I feel bad he hasn’t received a Mongo award.
