I never read those threads. However, I would if possible rename this thread. At first I thought it was another thread about wishy leaving and all the ranting. I'd change it to "who will lead the literary discussions?"
Fact: She's gone, and the reason is none of our business.
Those threads will probably just linger, and start to smell after a while....until some other mod scrapes them off the wall and lets them die.
Don't care why she is gone. In fact I don't think its any of our business. I'm just more wondering if someone is going to pick the reins of the literary challenges because I would like to see them continue. I have enjoyed reading what people have written.
