I can say with all honesty I was not #7. I was not even on the list.
Truth be told I honestly have no idea why I come back here. I have given serious thought as to why before and could not come up with an answer that satisfied me. I think the reason I come back here is because I feel I belong here, with the rest of you. Like, if I just stopped showing up, Spam would be lesser because of it.
I know that sounds incredibly egotistical, but I've been around long enough to know that when old members stop showing up, things get toned down more and more. That empty spot where they used to be gets filled occasionally by a new member, but it's never quite as nice as it was before. You can tell in the interactions of the members and the overall feeling of the sub, something was lost, and it can't be readily replaced. I don't want to remember the site as it once was, I want to keep it going as it is. If I left, I would never be able to return to the place that I've known for the past three years. The face may be the same, but the people, and the content? It will have changed. It will have been altered in ways I can only imagine, and by people whom I'll never know.
Because you're all my second family, and together we are all that holds us together. It'd be like entering your old home, only to find it was occupied by complete strangers.
...That's why I still come 'round.
