I woke up this morning a wee bit sad as I had to close a tab open to MSB on my phone, and reminded myself:
The forum was never the community. It was just where the community agreed to hang out. It could have been Reddit or Discord or a MUSH but - for a few years - it was the MSB forum.
If WORA was ever a thing, it is here now. The spirit of open, lively debate is here.
What we left behind are admin who admit candidly that they wanted us off their forum, so we are gone.
The people left behind on Derp’s forum are a separate community.
People can decide where they would like to belong. (Except for those of us who were banned but I also think that just reinforces what most of us had already chosen.)
I am happy to be part of this community. 🥰
