I gotta say it. (Fan Creations)

I've been thinking about this post for days.

I've noticed a change, Cody. It's probably been present for a while, but first, second, and [...] impressions die hard. Perhaps it's rude to bring up anything from years ago, but you're not as dogmatic as you used to be. You've always had a big impact here, and kept things lively. That's to the good, but there's been less good parts.

This post is classic Cody: very articulate, it contains strong, forceful opinions, but then there's this kicker:

Like, if you hated it please reply. I won't argue or mock you or anything… I literally just want to comprehend.

I wanted to kiss the screen. May we all seek to understand this sincerely.

I hope you don't take this as condescending or faint praise, I just appreciate you and this post. I believed them when they told me you were a good guy in person, I knew you were a good guy in chat, but you've pulled off something admirable and difficult: disagreeing without rancor online.


I hope someday we can raise a glass together. It'll be on me.
