My life has changed a lot in the last year. My interest in politics is not likely to return. I have also greatly moved away from running websites and so forth.

This is an established community with great people and I have no interest in shutting it down. At the same time, this software is old and requires maintenance. Getting new members in here is difficult. And I have been an "absentee landlord" for about two years now.

It may be time to talk about options for setting up a new version of this forum in some other place, with some of you fine folks running it.. so you can tailor and grow it.

Very honest, Charles. You have carried us all on your own for far too long, and it will be interesting to see where, if anywhere, it goes next. I know in the past several here have had several ideas of how to help

Let's not all separate without a nice farewell, at the very least.

“A republic,” Franklin said, “if you can keep it.”

No need for any farewells at all. I'm just talking about a change of venue and someone else wearing the chef's hat. :)

I hope all is well with you Charles. I am relatively new to the forum however I need to say thanks to someone and it seems to be you. The TRS forum is very much appreciated.
A doctor knows a little about a lot. A specialist knows a lot about a little. In time the doctor knows less and less about more and more and the specialist knows more and more about less and less until ultimately the doctor knows nothing about everything and the specialist knows everything about nothing.
