@andrew2696: I feel the same way. To be honest I don't really say too much about what I think about the site's general direction, because I don't want to misstep and end up in-league with the same people who hate Dan/Alex/hated Patrick. I still have a deep love for the site, and no matter what, I think it will always skew towards greatness.
I can't fucking believe Ryan is dead. I miss him so much.
