    There's no group think on You Tube?

    For the one making the video, it is a platform from which to speak, less of a room for conversation. I can't say it isn't understandable.

    I think it's the line falling back, which if not a strategic move can then be seen as a loss. Alas.

    My main show is a livestream and is interactive with the audience. Also, some of the people in my chats are people I speak with regularly with face and voice tech. More personal and less anonymous.

    UPDATE: I have messaged with my brother, Aragorn, and he thoughtfully made me aware of a sabbatical option instead of retirement and I have asked for that status. It will allow me to respond to private messages and even thank a post. We find ourselves in challenging times and I am thankful such challenges are being met with civility and compassion.

    I would support you no matter what you decided to do, Rad. That being said, i am more than pleased you have chosen a sabbatical instead of retirement, and grateful to Aragorn for making you aware of such an option.

    Given that Radagast was not aware of all his options when he posted the above, his account has now been put on sabbatical instead of in retirement, as per his own preference. There is a distinct difference in functionality and permissions between both statuses.


    Edit: My above post came a little late. I had opened several threads in separate browser tabs, and by the time I got to typing the above, more people had been posting to the thread already since the moment the tab was loaded. However, web browsing is not a synchronous technology, so the new posts had not become visible to me yet until after I had already posted the above myself.

    Just goes to show how easily something can get missed by not paying attention.

    Nature nectar. Nice.

    The pacific ocean was fouled by shite coming up from Mexico. That was one of the only unpleasant walks I've had on the beach out there. It reminded me of the stench that used to come off the Narragansett Bay.

    Humans.

    Oy.
