Recently, on Freebooted:
Blog Banters deserve better than to be left gather dust for weeks. I have always been very proud of having the opportunity to run the Blog Banters and would like to see them continue.
However, I’m no longer confident I can do them justice.

Seismic Stan, Mat Westhorpe, that built drunken lug with the sexy accent, whatever you want to call him, thank you. Thank you, as has been said by Rixx Javix and others, for picking up the mantle of custodian from Crazy Kinux, Dave Perry, that tall lug with the french sexy accent, whatever you want to call him, and running with it.
You’ve done a damned fine job of things, and I salute you. o7
I hope we can find a new Blog Banter custodian who can keep the tradition alive.
Funny that. You yourself have called me the Last Man Standing, and I’ve been a constant in the EVE community longer than anyone except perhaps Chribba. I may not be as infamous as the Mittani, or as publicly exposed as the CSM, but I am Roc, and that should be enough.
I speak and my voice is listened to.
I am willing to take on the banters. I am willing to hold out my hand and receive the torch, to keep the tradition alive. Though I haven’t participated in every single monthly banter, I have always appreciated their value, and contributed as often as I could. In fairness, I probably have the most banter contributions simply by virtue of having been around since the beginning.
I will not promise to do as good a job as you have done, or your predecessor, but I will strive to keep things going, to not let this die out.
When I mentioned this briefly on Twitter, Marc Scaurus suggested perhaps that the person that takes on the banters also take on managing the Blog Pack … that’s a lot for one person to bear. Sure, CK did it, but he was a rare and disturbed anomaly. And Canadian.
Just the same, I like to think I’m as disturbed as the next anomaly, so I will also volunteer for that role if it’s deemed necessary.
Share this post. Link EVE players you know to it. Comment on it. I want the feedback to be public and accountable so there is always a record to fall back on.
