Well, here we go - Karl, you didn't disappoint me!
Change can be hard, folks -- but this one shouldn't be, for all the reasons I posted in the general announcement.
Fine to vent here, but let's keep it civil and adult-like, please. This change isn't open for discussion, though if you're willing to join the TKO board, you too can help us run this place and be part of steering the future of the forum and TKO -- see me for details! Special venting rights go to those who have supported the forum and TKO with donations -- not very many, unfortunately -- but you know who you are, and we do appreciate you!
Thanks... and remember, this really won't hurt a bit in the great scope of human events. I promise. Way worse to be living in Eastern Ukraine, South Sudan or have an ebola epidemic in your neighborhood, for example.
