Josh was busy meditating.

Irene is experienced in “film, architecture, and opera... and currently pursuing a Masters of Design in Strategic Foresight and Innovation.” The future seems bright.

Why? What do you base that assumption on?

Neat dodge! Do you dance?

Interestingly, in just a few days, this thread has had 5665 views but only 162 posts. There is much to be mined from that ratio.

Life experience.

Meaning, ... you have the same education and mindset, and thus know what to expect?

Bart, it is like with jokes: if I need to explain it to you, either the joke is not good or you don’t have a sense of humor.

9 pages already!  There have been a variety of comments about the manner of the announcement and plenty of ideas.  In my neck of the woods, businesses would sometimes announce bad news on a Friday or just before a holiday, so that people would have a few days to get their feelings a little under control.  For that reason it is no surprise that there is some wonder about how the change has come about, despite Kevin and Chris's comments.  As I wrote earlier, I am very sad to see them go, but it has happened and I will wait to see what transpires.  As has been pointed out, people will not wait for long to see output from the new management.  I hope Josh and Irene show their hand soon.

Best wishes,


Jonathan

Oh my! Just in time as my subscription expired and i was debating about renewing it... I will not, as I will take a wait and see approach! The subscription was justified on the expectation of Michael-level content not fluffy stuff, so we shall see.

Good plan. You wouldn't want to waste 12 bucks.

Bart, it is like with jokes: if I need to explain it to you, either the joke is not good or you don’t have a sense of humor.

So if it was (like) a joke (despite the missing emoticon), it was probably not a good one.

Cheers,
Bart

You left out Contemplative Psychotherapy which is an invaluable trait for this website.

...(despite the missing emoticon)...

The need to have emoticons in order to understand if something is humor is a clear sign of the lack of the sense of humor.

Talking in riddles isn't necessarily a sign of intelligence. So an emoticon could help.

'Humor' at the expense of one's hosts is simply bad manners.

I don't know if you remember Dark Penguin; he used to post here in the rosy past, and to me, his big quality was the one-liner. He got so good at it that, in the end, his posts vanished completely, which I guess is a sort of culmination, an ultimate success, as it were.

Your line above reminded me of him.

Many thanks to those bowing out and to those bowing in. I enjoy visiting this site and I know it takes a very great deal of time and hard work to deliver a good one. Everything changes. Onwards and upwards!

You seem to be genetically incapable of not insulting people. Even people you don't know. Even people who didn't provoke you.

Insulting? Which part was not factual?

The assumption that you're joking?
