Roughly a week after its establishment, the perceptions that some people have regarding the reasons for its conception and what it is actually about still remain fascinating.
The forums are on their way out and I've expressed my gratitude for their existence
No credits of course to those who Zoe Quinn'd
me in 2021, nor to mb and some others who did nothing about it - and while I think they never were friends to begin with due to their lack of action, I can't have been a friend to them either due to expecting help in those circumstances (when I actually needed help the most! OH THE CONCEIT). BUT I was an idiot for most of the 2010s (and before) - hence coming to that expectation in the first place - and haven't really changed in that regard.
... then again, I did ask favours from them in the late 2000s and early 2010s while giving nothing in return. WHOOPS
At the very least it was a learning experience in not spending time on/with anyone the way I did in the past, so it'll actually be my fault if it happens again. I mean, in hindsight it was my fault to begin with (due to aforementioned idiocy), but still.
