When people only come here to be sad about its state

When one looks at one's join date and swears it was earlier...

When you return after months and nothing has changed.

When you actually start posting again because you give so few shits it flips around and you're posting because you care so little.

When you start looking over your posts from years ago because it's more interesting than actually posting...

When you realize the above is true.

When you see people get mad about the new rules.

When you realise your relationship with this place has gone on longer than any realworld relationship you've ever had.

When you witness your thread lose hundreds of pages?

When you didn't know that there were new rules.

When you see that it got a new facelift and they covered the forums, so that new people can't easily see past shenanigans.

When you think its time to put the archives out to pasture in a new forum system.
