Now what's that ? I have deleted my Goodbye article. Why ?
I was dead sure to stop here, you know why. But then I read Autumns article about her stopping to be part of WB. And I was shocked. Because I have been here for so long and have made so many dear (virtual LOL) friends, and.....frankly, I didn't want to lose them.....and many asked me to stay.
But when Autumn shuts down the light, how could we ever read Jeanne's memories about music again, Mircea's excellent analyses, George's POV on what is wrong in the US, Billy's ideas about the future, Jenifer's view from the OUTSIDE (to me it reads like that) etc. etc. ?
They all have become a part, ok, a minor part, but still a part of my life. When I read a comment of Mike, Kaushik, Tom, whoever I know a bit, it feels like the person is right besides me and we have a discussion among friends.
You won't find that on FB or LI
But the main drive to write that article is that I see how many people would regret that WB dies. I write this to support Tom who already wrote an article in support of WB, and I think he's very right.
We can carry on, we must carry on. And I will take the advice too to quieten down on my US criticism, given that others also try not to verbally hyperventilate ;-)
I advertised WB on FB already once more. Unfortunately many contacts only speak French, but I've got some Anglophones there too. On LI - I'd not advise it. I have seen many negative comments about WB there, and after all, it's a business site (or thinks it is), so no use. But some of you guys might have connections on other sites which could be interested.
Try it. Don't cost a dime :-)
