You are right, I'm beyond making light of the crap situation. The problem is when I see the thread bumped, I think oh, maybe there's an update, but it's usually just wishing and hoping.Making light of the crap situation he has put all of us in was not intended to make him move faster. It was exactly that... if you choose not to find humor in it, then so be it, it wasn't for you anyway. The lack of follow up on his part in this group is clearly deliberate and unacceptable. There is no reason to defend him at this point.
The last thing I'm doing is defending anyone. The fact that he's logging into watch.ru means he's capable of using a computer and typing a few sentences with an update.
Regardless, I continue to monitor watch.ru daily, but it's the same thing over there as it is here. People wishing and hoping he comes out of hiding to say something.
