With the recent changes that have been made, and my deadline to return looming, and becoming #1 on the list, I decided it was time to come back to PS and give it a second chance.

I imagine most people did not notice I was gone, since I didn't make a production out of leaving, just simply stated that I was unsure if I was willing to continue posting on a forum where people felt it was appropriate to belittle rape victims as 'statistically irrelevant', and then not apologize when challenged for dismissing the experiences of those who had so suffered. Rape is not an 'unimportant' crime to those who have been through it, and it's intolerable to think that it's treated lightly by anyone.

But it appears that changes are afoot, and with the prospect of having a safe, positively-driven PS where even the most straightforward honesty is tempered with tact, I am hopeful that it will become a favorite hangout again.

For those who remember me, my update over the last six months is as follows: living in domestic bliss in the middle of a west Texas nightmare. Life's about tradeoffs; I'll take the cultural wasteland along with the guy.

Gala, I''m thrilled you''re back. I was upset when you left, especially given the circumstances.

Hope Texas gets better. I''d go pretty much anywhere to be with my guy, too.

Welcome back, Gala. I''m genuinely sorry that things here were so combative when you left, and I hope that PS proves to be a better and safer place for you to rejoin. I hope to see new updates from you soon!

Hey there, I wasn''t here when you left, I have been gone myself for almost 3 years for personal reasons. I agreed with all that you wrote in your post and I don''t even know what you are talking about
But I do remember you from when I left so long ago. I hope you can feel safe and have fun again here at PS, because that is what its all about!!!

BTW, I will be moving to Nebraska for my love in 9 months.... he is so worth it!

Ditto. We missed you, hon! Sorry to hear Texas isn''t that great, but I''m so so happy that your cohabitation is full of bliss.
