If you're not a regular on events.scifi.com, you can skip this.

If you've been on events lately, you probably know Gurney's leaving, and why. If not, here's his explanation, and here's the log of the chat between Merlyn and shred.

I agree with Gurney about the incident that started all of this. I don't think Journeyman did the right thing, but I can understand why he did it. Dealing with that sort of idiocy gets old fast, and I would probably have done the same.

I don't think Gurney's making the right decision in cutting off all contact with the SFC; this incident has done far more damage than it should have. Shred should have been approached directly, and he should have offered an apology. None the less, I respect Gurney's decision to leave, and I'm not going to try to talk him into staying. Even back in January I would have felt differently, but things have changed.

I've had great times on events, and as Saalon said, I wouldn't trade them for anything. But the server has been going downhill for a long time now, and the community that was events is mostly gone. When you think about it, it's amazing how long it lasted. A lot of good has come out of that little community, and I'm proud to have been a part of it for so long. In short, it's about over, but it sure has been one helluva ride.

We're gonna miss you Gurn.
