Since the tragic event of a a few months ago, which left the community shaken, I just feel the need to point out how well Jeff has steered the community and his staff through the toughest time in the site's history. Through every podcast he has taken the reins with aplomb and reverence. The thought must have crossed everyone's mind at some point: "will the site continue?" Ryan was such a towering presence that his absence could have very easily overshadowed the future. As it is, it seems like he will be forever celebrated but never forgotten. I feel like the entire Giantbomb team have been exceptional for the last few weeks, pulling themselves forward to a point where things seem joyous again, and I think that this has been down largely to Jeff's guiding hand and principled nature. He jokes around a lot, but I have come to see him recently as a man of absolute integrity and a thoroughly decent human being.
I just wanted to say thank you.
