I'm reminded of The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. When the Who's wake up Christmas morning and celebrate even though the Grinch stole everything.

It's the spirit of the community not the gun that matters. Remove the gun and we still have the things that bring us here- A Great Community.

Thanks Para for giving us a place to hang out and a Great Community.

Seem like the anonymous attempt at ruining the fun is backfiring. And it is giving us the opportunity to give back to Para and the Forum. Feels kind of like the people running their mouths about Chick-fil-A and the response back from the community.

Thanks anonymous for spearheading this effort.

Thanks to Para and the mods for a great place.

Ladies and Gents, and non-gender conforming meat popsicles,

Thank you for your overwhelming response.

If you receive a short cut and paste response from me, it is because it is. It's not that I don't care, but because my life is more important than this.

I will get refunds out as soon as I can, but please be patient. This weekend I'm having part of my 100 year old waste stack replaced, and just in time. I mean my home, not _MY_ waste stack.

That's just one iron in my fire. If I don't respond to your email promptly, it's just because I don't like you, not because I'm busy. Wait, strike that, reverse it.


Arc.

The designer of the gun had clearly not been instructed to beat about the bush. 'Make it evil,' he'd been told. 'Make it totally clear that this gun has a right end and a wrong end. Make it totally clear to anyone standing at the wrong end that things are going badly for them. If that means sticking all sort of spikes and prongs and blackened bits all over it then so be it. This is not a gun for hanging over the fireplace or sticking in the umbrella stand, it is a gun for going out and making people miserable with.'

Para. Thanks for clarifying that. I want to contribute but didn't want to sound stoopid asking.

Yes, you did, however the cancellation happened before I could send in my money order.

Just making sure everyone has seen this in case you'd like your money refunded.

When y'all wrap this up, I suspect one of the metrics you'll publish is how many actually took you up on the refund. Maybe a few, but I bet it is a very small number!

No, I don't think it's right to detail that in any way. Some people wanted refunds, and they're entitled to such. We will not be giving any information on how many or what percentage, or anything.

Many of the people who entered the raffle have not asked for their moneys to be returned, and more folks have simply donated now.

I want to make sure anyone who wishes their money back gets it.


Arc.
