Thank you to everybody who followed me from College Misery to the Academic Water Cooler. I received dozens of emails and comments from people who, like me, were sad to see the end of College Misery (the site, not the misery itself). One message said, "You saved my semester." That's so gratifying that I might shut down the blog and reopen it a day later just to experience the supportive response again. And thanks visiting each day and carrying on in the comments section.
Just so you know, Leslie, Fab and Cal have been a great help to me getting things going behind the scenes. Leslie spread the word about the new site, Cal shared his poorly rendered graphics from CM and RYS and Fab, well, Fabio Sunshine was the only thing he could be: awesome.
We'll observe some of the traditions from those sites as well. We shall honor the Doctrine of Thirsties. I've only created one new rule: trolls are deleted. Don't engage with them since your replies will get deleted too. Just let it go, like water off the duck's back. Other than that, we'll just have to take things as they come.
Posting will continue on the weekend but maybe be a little bit lighter. Of course, if nobody sends me stuff to post, there won't be much going on here next week either. So get to it, ok?
Always and Sincerely,
Your faithful Moderator,
