Pathetic is that, if you didn't care, you would take the time to
mention it. There was no call for you to gossip about Bret's posts to
another news group.

What makes you think you even made the invitation list?

For once I agree 100% with the leftist nut :)

However, the "about the community part" is understated, I think that's
what it's ALL about. Well, that, in combination with the online
personae that goes with it.

When the persona became work, I had to become an occasional... Some
people feed on it, but for me it's draining.

Yes, I know, good riddance... etc. In true usenet fashion.

Oh, also I feel the opposite with the summer/winter thing, I'm too
absorbed in my own game and club to think about online during the
summer.

I didn't bring the issue of what people think of Bret up. I just
commented on it. Again, if this level of "caring" is important to you,
I genuinely feel sorry for you.
