It is a very thoughtful and important observation, Sabin.
I did get COVID-19 last Feb and did have some long haul symptoms until this spring. Now, I feel better and having had the vaccine also helped. We also moved to NH from PHL this past fall and it is very nice to have more open space, outdoor activities etc. in our lives.
More recently, I also took a break from the board because I stupidly flew off the handle over moderation of a post and swore I would leave and never come back, lol. As I said, stupid. I'm back because this place is still, after 20+ years, great and fun due to the people, like yourself, who make it work.
