Well done, Team Geezer. Fair (almost to a fault), objective, first-hand observation of the East Sheen traveling circus. You took a week of your lives to observe this farce which put it to an end de facto. And in the process, you never overlooked the human element, which is essential.
One thing that should be noted, the article treats letsrun as if it's a single entity and a single voice. It is anything but that. And not all on here are uncivil. There were plenty of posts on the thread that were not impolite contrary to what the article claims, but too often those were drowned out by the louder, courser posts laced with crude insults and mockery. But to assume every poster, reader, and lurker on letsrun is a "basement dweller" (a trite meme) incapable of polite discourse indicates a shallow reading of this thread.
