Well folks… I’m semi-retiring.
I have several new responsibilities, concerns and duties in my personal life, which I cannot ignore. In short, my personal life is much more complex now, than it was 3 years ago (when I opened the blog). I can no longer justify, investing huge amounts of time, on this hobby. Beyond that… I’m simply exhausted from this blog nonsense. I need a break. Going forward, Kimchi is the boss.
I’ll still check the blog daily… and I’ll offer a quip, quote, joke or commentary, when I have some free time to kill. I may even post the occasional thread, if a topic really grabs me. The "thread hall of fame" will certainly continue... because giving contributors credit for their submissions, has always been a priority. Lastly, I'll continue to intervene, if/when someone is behaving like a complete ass (in the comments section). But beyond that, I’m taking a back seat. I may return full-time at some point… but, it won’t be any time soon.
THE NEW MAIL POLICY:
I've fallen WAY behind with several blog duties… but most especially, the incoming mail and thread submissions In fact, in recent months… I’ve completely ignored most of the blog’s incoming mail (due to time constraints). This situation is just not fair to our contributors... or, our readers.
As a consequence, the blog has lost many reliable thread contributors. Heck… I can't blame them. If I submitted 3 or 4 good thread ideas to a blog administrator, and my threads were never posted… and furthermore… I never received a return email... I'd discontinue communications, as well.
In a nutshell… things have to change. Hence, this current restructuring.
In retrospect… I should have updated my mail system, a year ago. Unfortunately, I tried to maintain the mailbag reigns, for as long as possible... and it backfired. Live and learn. As I said... I pissed-off a lot of good folks by not responding to their communications... and, it's perfectly understandable.
OK… enough back-story.
THE NEW SYSTEM:
Kimchi and Sunset are now in-charge of all LSB3 mail. If you have a thread submission, comment, question or suggestion… hit them up. They’re both very reliable and capable folks. This new system will prove efficient. Blog mail will be opened in a timely manner, and threads will be posted quickly.
Here’s their contact info:
firstname.lastname@example.org (yes, there’s an extra seven)
Their contact information is also posted prominently in the sidebar.
This new system will prove beneficial to everyone concerned… both contributors and readers alike. Please join me in thanking Kimchi and Sunset in advance, for their help and efforts.
My sincere apologies to anyone whose email messages went unanswered over the last year. My bad.
