I'm glad that this place is still going and I'm glad it paid for itself!

For myself, I haven't wanted to write here very much, but I've enjoyed lurking and adding the odd little comment. The community remains great.

The reason I haven't been writing is that the site still isn't really good as a writing platform. Because the new post links inevitably expire before I've finished a decent-sized post, I have to write it someplace else anyway. At that point, I may as well put something long-form on e.g. Medium and then link it here. It's also something that prevents me writing long replies, since I have this nebulous ticking clock in my head any time I reply, since I don't know how long I can write before the link expires. Here too I don't want to have to fire up another text editor and then copy and paste it into hubski.
