One of the blogs I read is Scram Web. I started reading Scram Web when I started the Punisher Plan because his blog came up with a rather useful post on Punishers.
And Scram Web was the first blog to provide a link to my own blog.
So it is with great sadness that I learn that Scram Web is shutting down, in large part because of frustrations with CCP and the direction Eve has taken. I tried to comment on the blog itself, but for whatever reason my comment just would not go through. So here is what I tried to say.
" Wow. I'm really sorry to hear that you feel that way.
This is something that you have clearly thought about a great deal, so I won't try and change your mind. Looking back, I can see you slowly reaching this point over the last few months, so I doubt it is a decision you have made quickly, and it is unlikely that you will regret this move in the short term. More time with your wife and children can only be a good thing.
That said, I think it is wise that you are keeping your character. There are various hobbies that I have abandoned - with no intention of returning to - that I have come back to years later, grateful that I still have everything that I need.
I have enjoyed Scram Web, and will be sorry to see it go. I wish you all the best in your new pursuits, whatever they may be."
It's traditional to insert a humorous request for the Eve-leaver's stuff, but it just doesn't seem funny right now.
