Back after a few months away from the site. I knew I couldn't leave ya'll for good!
Looking forward again to the wonderful meaningful discussion here that is so important. You simply can't put a price on a community that shares your values, that which most of society deems "out of touch", "outdated", "no fun", you name it. It gets intense in here sometimes, so sometimes a step back is needed, but there's far too many good things going on not to be a part of it.
For those of you I haven't met yet, I'm Eric. Feel free to introduce yourself, I'd love to chat with you!
