  1. Just discovered your podcast after being mentioned on Casual Stroll to Mordor. Looking forward to listening.

    I waited (well, forced to because of work) several days before posting my thoughts on the whole thing as well. So far, my stance hasn't really changed; I think this will end up being a good thing once the dust settles.
