Farewells from a Soul Reaper

As many of you are aware, the Great Social Group Purge has begun. Among it's first victims was the Zexalia Hideout. Taking the words of Evil Figment into account, I can understand why it was deleted so suddenly, but it was still painful for them and they fled to The Planetary Pit Stop, a group I've been apart of since shortly after it was created and a group that the Hideout knew well. We soon began to panic out of fear that the Pit Stop meet deletion requirements. Within 2 hours of the Purge's beginning, the Pit Stop also fell victim. The only hinting was my own panic at seeing two mods in the group's user list. Now with the Pit Stop, the only place on the internet where I was truly happy, gone, it was like somebody had first burned down the neighbor's house, then your own as you took in your neighbors. There were only two other places where could go, the first was the Dueling Network Club (as most of the members of the Hideout and PPS were duelists) the other was the Quick Topic I had made several months back for similar situations, but I couldn't have imagined a situation like this. The QT was meant as a place where we could continue to chat even if the landlord went nuts or the forums were down and was never intended to fully replace the Pit Stop. I am willing to forgive the staff for their miscommunication, but I am starting to think that a notice would've only made leaving harder. Lief has put forward ideas for an offsite Pit Stop, but it won't be able to have the same memories as the old one. Seeing how the Pit Stop was the only thing that had me still tied to the Bulbagarden Forums, I see no reason to stay here at Bulbagarden. I will return to my nomadic way of life, but before I do, I want to say a few things to the folks who have made the past year so interesting.
Well, I've said what I've wanted to say. You can reply to this post if you want, but it's unlikely I will see it.
