I've actually started moderating in the SFWPorn Network again, mostly because I missed talking to my friends in modmail. I've also been pretty active in the /r/bitcoin subreddit recently (because cryptocurrencies fascinate me) with my second reddit account /u/syncretic2 - I've had a backup account for some time in case anything happened to my original account. I have bouts of depression at times and the "Gawkergate" / Scopolamina controversies (which involved two online friends of mine who were treated unfairly by the reddit admins) was a tipping point of sorts for me during an already otherwise dark time for me. Things have turned around considerably for me recently and I have a new outlook on life. The "2" in front of my username is a reminder to not let the internet cause me any undue stress in the future, especially not reddit.
