I have decided to take a break from this site for a while...lately, I feel like I am shoveling shit against the tide. The overall quality of the site is becoming..., well, something I do no not want to see. It is a little like watching a train wreck in extreme slo-mo.
Possibly the recent lack of user moderation is due the general malaise which has fallen on so many of us following the Monica scandal, but I am not discounting the possibility that we have become so super-saturated with so many false facts in the last 3 years that we feel completely inundated by bullshit.
That is three too many "so many's".
Apart from that, my wife says that it is making me anxious.
...and I don't need any more "anxious" in my life.
