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