There's so much desparation, fear and uncertainty out there right now, let me spread a few words of confidence.
The last days have been hard, as everyone was hoping for and working on a good terms solution. For a few of us it has been clear after the first words from Justin that this may very well not work out though.
His most recent action, basically buying witnesses that follow his ideas and rallying for support in corners of the community that don't understand the inner workings and always only cared about their own profits (I knew you, @exyle - but that's unexpectedly low even from you), throws these hopes over board completely.
But, in my opinion this is the cataclyst for something new and better. For my part, I am not willing to work on a project with sun any more. And I know many here feel the same. There have been various examples of chains forking in the past of crypto, and this time it will be a real community going its own way. Not completely united, but the people building and working and making this place what it really is besides a money making scheme know where they stand. I even have seen faces return I would have never expected to come or even look back. We're stronger than ever, we're finally free of the shackles of our past, and the future is bright.
This does not mean to stop what we are doing. Let's keep showing strength, and that puppet witnesses are nothing this community appreciates!
Steem (or under whatever name we shall be known) on!
