    I’m OK with mistakes, everyone makes them. I’m NOT OK with no communication from the new owners. There’s no excuse for that.
    I entered the raffle before this mess; sorry I did.

    Edit to add: My initial post didn't go through, so I hit "post reply" again. That didn't go through either, so I hit the refresh button. Then the post appeared and was duplicated.

    Ditto. And ditto. ;)

    Maybe we shouldn't say anything until we find out if there are duplicate winners.

    Uh oh everybody stopped posting about being unable to post.

    Does the lack of posts indicate a returned ability to post?

    I saw this happen on a gun forum now the only posters are cranky trolls. It's a bummer hopefully they'll pull it together.

    One more site I frequent goes down and I'll have to enter the fight and create one!

    I've run a couple of them, one in excess of 325,000 users. No, you don't want to do that. Better you should repeatedly smash your head with the refrigerator door until the idea goes away.

    I've never quite understood your avatar pic.

    One possibility is it's a stick of dynamite lighting it's own fuse while at the same time scratching it's head trying to decide what to do.
    IOW the archetypical act before you think.

    Another possibility is it's a candle lighting a single candle, being the change it wants to see in the world, alone in an action not shared by anyone, thus the archetypical act of good willed futility.

    A third option is the character is either adding an idea or removing an idea, from itself.

    Any of which could be similar to smashing one's own head with a door until the idea passes...

    Any significance to the refrigerator?

    ....Cuz that's the way "upgrades" and "technology" changes often are? The changes might not've really been for your benefit? Software might not've been actually better, or fully tested or fully understood....?

    Sometimes us tinfoil hat guys can tilt the visor and see more clearly than y'all.

    All of your theories are correct. It's also just an orange being pulling a light bulb out of its head, possibly putting another one in. I do like the "archetypical act" thing, though.

    My avatar is actually Microsoft clip art that came bundled with an ancient version of Office, probably back in the 90s.

    There's no significance to the refrigerator door. It's just something handy, hinged, and heavy. Open the door, stick your head in, and slam the door on your head until unwanted thoughts are gone. Simple and effective, in theory.
