Thank you!

It's not just the longformness, though, it's the picturelessness, the adfreeness, the weird obsessiveness, the actually-made-of-people-ness. All that seems to have gone underground. I guess, being of the badgery persuasion, I should just start digging.

I had a look at one of those old newsgroups (yes, that one) for the first time in ages, the other day. It's still going.

Yes, this.

All this, and our own peculiar social sett.

And *that* group? Every few years I look in on it, recognise a few familiar faces - with dismay: "You're *still* here?" - and move on, silently. The handle I had in those days is long gone, deleted and purged... And recycled by some clever young man who will be terribly, terribly embarrassed when he discovers the baggage attached to 'his' rather dated name. It's actually more embarrassing, not less, that some of it is quite well-written, orang-utans in ill-fitting shirts and all.
