thanks you guys. Sean's a really great guy and an amazing artist. the city of Boston went WAY too far with this and I'm pissed at TBS for not insisting their pardon be part of the deal.

Actually, SB isn't a moderator any more. He's IS someone who cares enough about the eplaya to try to make his transition away from moderation smooth though. I appreciate all he's done around here.

I would recommend you guys work this out in Thunderdome if there's more to say.
