Oh yes Livejournal. Those were innocent times. Happy go-lucky innocent times.
Now we have to say goodbye to the latest to leave us, and share with you the news of those stepping off the edge into the volcano so that others might be brought back into the game.

Unfortunately though the nature of the beast is that every week we are going to say goodbye to some people. This week it is 7 people*. (the next knot up would have taken out 12. In other words, it was pretty close. * I was looking back over the spreadsheet and realized that I had missed a tie)
