Going back to places (IRL or online) after being away from them a few years can be weird. It's the same place, but it's not. Which makes sense in terms of continuity of identity. For example, the dwarf's Grandfather's Axe, carried down through generations. The handle and the head have been replaced repeatedly, but it's still the same axe, due to the continuity of it. Now if you took the original axe, and then jumped straight to the "same" axe, after the replacements, it wouldn't seem (to you) to be the same axe. But instead of time travel, you leave for a few years.

The people in the community are the metaphorical axe handle and head, if I didn't make that clear.

This is probably one of those posts that seems insightful at midnight, but turns out to be crap when looked at in daylight.
