You know, ask a simple question and get verbally and visually attacked on a "fellow patriot's" blog, never mind that it has a readership of 3, and you pretty much want to knock the dust off your boots and walk away. I just never felt compelled to put it down in writing. Never held the same status or level of reverence that Wirecutter has in the Patriot movement; was never really taken seriously by the other players, so figured my announcement of withdrawal would draw a huge simultaneous gasp of ..... meh.
But when Wirecutter says he's done? Yeah, that's something big. And he's got very good reasons. Maybe like pruning dead and diseased branches is the only way to save a tree, cutting the diseased "tops" off the Patriot tree is the only way to save the movement. Cut shoots off the healthy tree and plant locally. Grow your own, tend it, nurture it. Where you live.
And don't panic, he's not done bullshittin' and posting milfs, he's just done messing with wannabes.
