I take the 20 users comment as a jab at the old eplaya core users. If I'm
wrong, call me oversensitive.

If I were in your shoes, and I'm not, I'd be asking myself if the current
thing you're trying to fix is good for more than 20 users right now, and
who they might be.

Frankly, I can't stand to read much around here anymore and it has
nothing to do with the technology. It seems to have become ego-
stroking for a couple of digital diarrhetics and I'm not interested in
participating in that. The technology, I guess, doesn't allow me to
avoid it easily, but I'm thinking that even if it did, worthwhile content
is sparse. Maybe that'll change when you get a handle on how things
are being used currently.

I wish you the best of luck in devising a solution to the social issues
that have cropped up. The tech issues are easy in comparison.

And though I realize this sort of comes of as a fuck you to the tech team,
it isn't intended that way at all. I think that on the whole you could have
done a better job of communicating what was going on from the
beginning, but that's the only criticism I'll offer.

Sex?, of course.

The moron is dumber, only because the word is misspelled.
