    Just a quick update as I figured I should avoid any misinterpretation... as I recently started a new job, and as we get into the holiday season, time is pretty tight. Steve and I discussed this and he agreed, there’s just not enough time in the day right now for either of us. I’ve basically been acting as a normal member for a couple of months now (thanks BadJustin for taking on the mod duties!).

    So, we’ve decided to make it official and step away from mod/admin duties effective immediately. This will more accurately reflect our actual level of current involvement, which has been purely a casualty of how busy things are at work and in life right now. Aside from that, we’ll still be here!

    Best of luck. Thanks for putting us in a position where open rebellion is deemed necessary by some.

    Surely this thread won't be a dumpster fire in less than 5 posts.

    ... enjoy whatever profit you made from the sale of the site. Genuine appreciation for what you built. Sorry things turned out the way they did. We're all mad now, but deep down you know we loved the community you rallied together. I hope your new job is a success.

    Gene regardless of how things ultimately go down, thank you for all of your work in bringing this thing together and keeping it together over the years. This is a special corner of the internet that you have built, and I've made lasting IRL friendships from this place.

    FWIW, this is also what I would do under the circumstances. Not sure what your arrangement is/was with new ownership regarding continued involvement, but it's certainly awkward to be in a situation where membership is looking to you for guidance when there is a new sheriff in town.

    In any event, thanks again, and hope to have the chance to share a beer someday.
