I'm not that bothered, but I sure not everyone was in the same boat.
I think there's a general feeling of camaraderie in here, we're all around the same age, we have common interests, we have a laugh etc. So when the hat went round and people chipped in it solidified that bond, Ed and Loopy being leading figures in the movement. The internet had become real for us and even the cynical started to believe again, we were a middle aged, put upon, band of jaded rave brothers under prog.
Now it went tits up, shit happens. But for Loopy and Ed to continue to post with gay abandon without even coming in here to explain where the money went, that's all you need to know about what we thought we had going here. This is a dog eat dog shark tank powder keg full of Alpha males looking to catch you slipping and fuck you up. Shame on them for holding a mirror up to us so we could see out true selves. Shame on them for littering our digital oasis with flaming bags of shit.
Only John could save us but he remains cold and indifferent, a harsh lesson for the likes of Kiz.
I hate you all.
