    um....er....WOW!

    iBrian My time here is done - if you need anything at IO, please contact StevePame:http://www.interfaith.org/community/members/18886/

    Your time here? I bow deeply for all you've done, for the worldwide community you've put together, for the work and dedication over the years...

    Incredible my brother, I am sure there are more pressing things in your life, but you must now how thoroughly we appreciate what we've been able to discuss, the connections we've been able to make, due to your efforts.. It has been no small task, the creation, the dealing with us and bots and prophets (and lack thereof of profits)

    Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU!

    I hope he hasn't faded away completely, just slid into the "common member" slot instead.

    Apologies for not mentioning anything too public - my financial situation has been getting increasingly tight, so I was forced to sell of a number of my websites, which included IO.

    However, I feared that posting a public announcement about my leaving might be seen as being disruptive to the community. I've seen this happen before, where core members reject the change and decide to leave, and perhaps set up a rival site.

    By doing things quietly, I had hoped that everything could continue to move forwards with as least disruption as possible, and allow the new owners a chance for a smooth changeover with least impact to the community.

    ah.... I'd like to thank you for what you created... I hope the new owners take good care of us...

    Did you tell them about the biannual party that you've been throwing? I haven't seen my first class tickets yet....was it Norway or Argentina this July?

    my only regret is that you didn't offer it to us.... would have been interesting to see a member owned IO...

    Gotta go with Wil on this, thanks Brian!

    And I'm pretty sure that was Argentina this year...I'm still waiting on my ticket too.

    I will do my best to fill in the iShoes, although I know it will be difficult to achieve such a feat. I'm dedicated to keeping this community alive and flourishing, so please let me know what I can do to make this transition as smooth as possible.

    As for the party, Argentina sounds good to me too.
