Personally, I think we should figure out some way to thank him for legit. I mean, for a lot of people, having the opportunity to RP is really a life saving thing. For some it's just entertainment, but... Well. He's gone through a lot of difficulty to get the site back up and running.
Beyond that, I think it might well be a good idea to send the God and Goddesses of E a little thanks as well. It really is wonderful to have such a place to congregate and converse without having to so much as... ya know... leave the house. *smirks*
So... thanks to those of you here at E that make this place possible. It is of great value to me.
