The apathy is blinding.
It is exactly because of how everyone shrugs off anything serious on here, that this is occurring.
I don't enjoy starting issues as much as the next person. As you can see I avoid serious and dangerous topics with deprecating comments and jokes all the time. But rather than having this loom over the thread and eventually kill it off, why not be progressive about it? I only bring this up because I'm too indebted to this thread.
I realize that people stopped taking things on here seriously because it is the Internet. But I hold many of you in high regard on here, I respect you as people. So please, just this once, won't you take this seriously? This is the last I'll ask of you.
