To Michael - on closing down the DPSubmitted by meowmixeater on Sun, 04/28/2013 - 23:37
Words cannot express how much this site means to me and im sure to many others here as well. With 2016 coming up it will once again be a metropolitan and buzzing with posts all about the election cycle. With this site in place it will help the liberty candidate (probably Rand) significantly to help secure the nomination since we will have a common ground to organize.
With that said, I completely think that you need to move on and do something else since you have reached the end of your rope, however I think very strongly that its critical to keep this site up and running and that its time to pass this site onto someone else who can run it without you having to lift a finger.
The cost of not having this site in place in 2016 may be dire to our chances in the election...
Its fair to you because you can finally move on with your life and its fair to all of us here who have come to depend so strongly on this wonderful home and community. Not only that, but it will greatly improve the chances of the libery candidate in 2016.
I want you to be happy Michael but shutting down the site means only you are happy and all of us will be sad and dissapointed. Why not give the site to someone who you can trust to take care of it? Maybe have a vote to see who would be the new owner that members can elect. It would be the final thing you ever have to do on the DP and then you would always be welcome to stop by and say hello to this wonderful community you created, minus the stress.
No matter what you decide to do, we love you always!
