Best advice I've heard all day!!
"What you have to do is learn how to not give a rat's backside, take your anger and make it abstract."
Darned straight - no amounting of begging and pleading is going to change things. Rather - our hard-luck sobs are just going to reinforce things.
I'm going to sit on my rings until January. My only hope left is that WebRing will overlook those of us who have already contributed and make the new rule non-retrospective. Even more so those of us who donated our five bucks! I'm trying to hold on to what I've got - best of luck everyone.
Thanks end_homophobia - you make a lot of sense.
