I just wanted to say thank you. Especially to Miranda, your emails meant a lot to me when I needed them. If you want to discuss why I was gone in private, you can send me a note and I will discuss it. I ask that you do not overwhelm me immediately, I am still finding my feet so I can return full time as the mod you all love. Know I am watching though and thinking fondly of you guys.
Oh, and btw, I will just use this opportunity to let you all know I am coming out as genderqueer. Took me a few years to figure that out, but I am pleased with that conclusion.
