    for NOT burning the bridge.
    I'm getting much the same vibe and as you say, time spent here is time I'm not spending being productive IRL.
    Yesterday was my one year anniversary (Toot!Toot!) and in that short span, I've seen a degradation in the quality of debate, an increase in gang activity and a division and coarsening of the overall culture. It's unfortunate because when I started coming here, it was such a relief from the non-moderated sites I had been frequenting. It seems like the corrosion is following me.

    If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!

      I can tell you that it goes in cycles -- usually off-years, when we don't have an election to directly focus on, are the times when the site goes into Crazy Mode. Add to that the fact a lot of people feel personally betrayed by the current Administration (I'm disappointed in some of what's been going on, but I never saw Obama as a political Messiah but rather just a way better alternative to Republican misrule). I hope in 2014 that we'll actually be able to focus on the real problem of the GOP in Congress, and not descend into the "no difference" lie; most of the Democrats aren't looking to regulate my nieces' and great-nieces' vaginas, for one big difference.
