I'm hoping for a comeback of the forum. Of course the dopamine addiction isn't satisfied in a forum such as this so the masses will stick to where "likes," "shares," and followers reign, but there will never be anything that rivals the quality of what we had here.

I'm earnestly hoping for a resurrection as well.

Social media is good for dopamine and being old man yells at cloud about the most recent dumb shit you read on the internet, but it's not a community. Forums were always community first and narcissism at least 3rd.

Haven't been here in six years. Seems everyone else had the same idea. ;-)

Of course you are Rob. We are actually coming back to make sure your awesomeness is still intact. The humble spirit is obviously alive and well, that's good to see.

Obviously you managed to not get burned up. According to all news agencies in all the world, Oz is lava...all of it...so I'm glad you made it thus far.
