We have a big, big, problem on this board....

Postby gower21 » Thu Jun 14, 2012 3:02 pm

Problem: Marin L. Shoemaker has chosen to seclude himself away and not post until we get final results for Q1. I beg you all to write to your senators and demand results come in so we can all have our beloved Martin back.

The petition to have everyone's names changed to Martin is in the back. Please make sure to sign your real name first.

No. I don't believe that he thought he needed to cover his tracks back then.

It seems that Martin has his own gravitational pull. We now have him completely convincing Steve (Klaatu) to not post either. It seems that Steve is close to a round number as well. Also I'm perilously close to 1,000 posts. The fate of the board is in jeopardy.

ETA:

Update: Steve fumbled on the play and accidentally posted in the Q1 tread. We are all safe.

For now.

I *think* Steve posted as a joke. But I'm not entirely sure. It's Thursday, after all.

Well, technically, we heard (about) results yesterday... Shouldn't that count?

I can't imagine a week without Martin.

Then again, some of us did follow him to Facebook, so life ain't all bad.

As a fellow Martin, I feel obligated to maintain a Martin presence on these boards in Martin L. Shoemaker's absence. My posts will not be as witty as his, but hopefully they will lessen everyone's unease during this turbulent period (may it be short lived).
