For what it's worth: thank you, Morpheus, for your kind words.
Amazing how just One Voice can be enough to establish Dignity and Moral Superiority against any Impossibility of Reason. Tyrants will come, and force their views onto others, no matter how irrational. This is a most inspiring example of how, in the end, the only persons still imprisoned in their dungeons of manipulative half-truths (a dozen tumbleweeds aside) are the Tyrants themselves.
I will not be defending myself in this forum. The Powers That Be would not allow for a fair conversation anyway, they haven't from day one. I have a good understanding of everything I have done, and why I have done it. My conscience before myself is clear.
I have an extraordinary amount of things archived: the old forum, chat logs, etc. I have referenced that content in my writings in the past, and will continue in the future. I believe that I have given everything that I could to Fate of Io. I feel good about the things I was able to offer. I am presently making very good money with my other projects, while perhaps offering considerably less.
It is true that I have displayed quite a bit of weakness while working in this project. The truth is that there has been quite a bit of weakness within me at that time, and sadly this is what this project seems to bring out most in people. I have lived through a lot in my life: poverty, disability, Communism ... and yet I honestly feel that no person in the world has caused me more pain than Temporal has. I truly feel that, and yet I've tried to make a friend and mentor of him, to the very bitter end and further beyond all reason.
Why do I linger here? In spite of everything, this project is a part of me. You cannot take this misshaped brick out of the tower that is my life, because some very important things were laid on top of it. I've sworn to be a person who cares about the world, even when the world cares nothing for him. I guess this was a speed bump I needed to go through before discovering much more rewarding things. Still, I enjoy the memories.
Regarding visiting... I enjoy observing this project. Some things about it remind me of my youth. I hit the site about once a month to catch up, and will continue to do so for as long as I desire, though it would be sad if this desire would outlive this project, or be remembered longer. I wish you all good things.
As far as posting... A thinker, sadly, can be silenced through brutality and force. I feel some degree of pride in knowing that this is not the case with me and FoI. I simply have found other, better pastures for my thought.
I shall post here no more.
