Recently, I would have to concur with footpad, too many old skeletons are appearing in Nodes to Consider. I'm not sure if it's because the people burned by some of the offenders have finally reached the level where they can consider nodes or whether it's because the Reaper is actually working, finally, and old grudges die hard.

Unfortunately, if you revise history to your benefit, then you end up with the distopian society that we should naturally wish to avoid. It is a mark of a society that is slowly strangling itself to death. Personally, I don't want to suffer the fate of /., but I also don't want it to be stifled into non-existance because I and others suddenly find ourselves on the wrong end of a grudge.
