Scram Web

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.


  1. Thanks for the comments. I too have enjoyed your blog over the past few months. Your Punisher plan is one of the best series of articles on any EVE blog. I wish you all the best in EVE.

  2. Toterra, I could not post a comment on your blog as I don't have access to the systems (Taurean changed the settings so one could post via name / url).

    I, too, am sorry to see you leave; and do agree the CCP new direction leaves a lot of questions unanswered (who stays in station that long they need such quarters?).

  3. @ Toterra
    Maybe we can talk you into leading a blog pack alliance tournament team next year?

    If that's not good enough give me some time I'll come up with a way to pull you back in I loved your writing.

    Good luck,
