    In case it's not clear, I'm on my way out too. I didn't really want to, but it has to be done. I've got push off, so come find me on Twitter if we're not already connected (and let me know who you are) and I'll follow back. Thanks for the good times.

      @annatarkov @oluseyi You know what, guys? This is exactly what I'm talking about. And if fighting is caring, then maybe I'm done caring. Because I'm sure as hell done with the fighting.

        @jessicadennis Or they keep doing it and then the whole network becomes a patter room for that.

          So I come back today to see if anything's calmed down at all and I see people arguing about an argument that took place a month ago. Have fun, guys.

            Pretty soon whether you can mute or silence someone in a client or on the server isn't going to matter, folks.

              @gm There were moments, sure. But not like this. It feels like everyone is backed into a corner and ready to claw.

                @0xmf There's no need to apologize. But what I'm saying is this isn't going to get better with wishful thinking or a new API. And it's not going to fix itself.

                  @0xmf Like, if you want to continue making excuses and keeping your head in the sand, that's your prerogative. But I respect a lot of the people who are leaving and they're doing so for extremely justified reasons. It's a mistake to dismiss that.

                    @0xmf I'm already past discouraged.

                      The tone of this place has turned! I remember when the users that migrated from twitter thought ADN was the new hotness and crapped on twitter. Now, it’s the opposite. It’s the conversations and not the medium, people.

                        @nguarracino This, exactly. I couldn't have said it any better myself. And that should be an eye opener.

                          @wickedgood Well said. I've never posted nearly as much as you, but I haven't felt like jumping in on any threads at all here. Feels like I need to go over to Twitter to have some more respectful and fun conversations, and that's really saying something.

                            @annatarkov I agree wholeheartedly with the former. As for the latter, I'm coming to terms with the fact that the transport mechanism doesn't matter. @neilco

                              @antijingoist But that’s what people are trying to protect against, ultimately.

                                @antijingoist Eventually. Not imminently.

                                  @annatarkov @neilco Lord of the Flies is exactly how I’ve been feeling, and it sucks. And I have a lot of true friendships from here that I treasure, and I hate that this is how I’m feeling about the network right now. But here we are.
