This feels like compulsion to me, but I’ve come back as an IM. Mostly I’ve been cleaning and that exercise, while soothing, is bringing something home to me: the game is on its last legs.

I cleaned England and all its subs in about 2 weeks. Back in the day the notion of cleaning that large an industry would have been inconceivable. You just couldn’t do it–not unless you had all the other IMs working at it and even then . . .

But we’re down to a handful of players, and half of them don’t mod and the other half don’t vote.

I think the game could be revived, but I;m at a loss as to how.
