    So now Rebellion Media is spamming my RSS lists with non-editorial mmajunkie reposts? This is unfortunate. Ryan, if yer anywhere out there, I wish you the best in whatever you undertake. I still love my Human Cockfighting shirt and hope whatever you moved onto has brought you happiness.

    I’ve been along for this ride since blogger so it’s a sad day when I have to remove you from my feedreader. Good luck Ryan & Jim – tis been a blast.

    Word up DJ it’s been fun man I will forever remember the hogan stache! I don’t see this setback recovering like the past. I also wish Ryan the best and all the shame chips he can handle. Cheers bitches.

    Haha, I almost used her for Disqus, but went with Doc Sanchez instead. I will always remember your paint-huffer. I actually spent a lunch break looking at paint-stained mugshots because of that thing.

    I loved the jovial atmosphere in the community here that won’t transfer to any other site. Middleeasy has it’s own thing – Bailey’s over there doing work for them now methinks – but I don’t think there’s any other place with a vibe like Ryan cultivated. I love Jim and am glad he took the reigns. I thought he’d get further into the groove and we had a chance but the other RMspambots just ruin it.

    Now I’m just reading BE and JackSlack for my nerd fix, and MMAjourno of course.

    Ryan, you made something brutal and depressing fun and humble for us Jackals, so I’ll always be thankful for that. Peace.
