All that work you’re doing? It’s pointless!

Your life? Meaningless!

Does anybody love you? No!

Do you smell horrible? You bet you do stinky!

Does everyone remember that really socially awkward thing you did that one time? It’s the only thing people think about when your name comes up!

Also

Can you add in that Mr. Brainwash Justice League print to the database?
Thanks.

Wanted to give an update of sorts, since nobody else seems to be doing much of that anymore (despite the fact that I hardly know fudge about fudge). I've just sent a, rather strongly worded, email to the seven members of the Board of Directors for the site, co-signed by four of the last remaining non-board team members/volunteers that I reached out to to join me (1nkling, pewter14, theperfecttree, and younevrknow). We're demanding action from each of them by Friday. This is, without exaggeration, my last attempt at getting them to uphold their responsibilities to the community and fulfill their commitments to you all, before I finally give up, myself. You all haven't seen much of this, but I've been complaining quite a lot to them over the last couple months, and especially over the last few weeks (I guess some of it has actually spilled into this thread). I'm trying my best to be a voice for the community, but there's only so much I can do. Anyway, just wanted to let you know.
(Can't wait to see what sort of derision this evokes from mr. grey toast)
So it goes...

Thanks Mike! :clap: I’m glad my harsh words forced your hand and got you to actually do something that might lead to action. :P

Had nothing to do with what you said. This has been percolating for a bit. All you accomplished was offending me.

No fudge dude, tongue out icon, duh.

Never knew you to be so sensitive, usually you are on the thick-skinned side. Guess I struck a chord. Sorry.

maybe it worked Faithy - this is the first day in a long time that I'm able to navigate the site and actually post replies.

Appreciate that you keep fighting for and adding to the site. I would have given up a long time ago if I was in your place. I just like posting puns and gifs mostly, but I do really "use" this site a lot for exploring art and the market for certain things. I don't buy much, I don't flip much, but I appreciate that you've made researching all that a lot easier over the years by your constant work adding to the database.
