    Update: Less Scrolling + Free Gestures + More Recent Fixes

    Trolls don't make me at all glad EP is ending.

    I have long heard much discussion of "trolls" as a negative part of the EP experience. I don't know exactly what people have in mind with "trolls", but I suspect it's being used primarily in regard to what I would call bullies. It is true that I lost two of my best friends on EP...

    Hey EP Admins -- if the issue is

    privacy/anonymity and big government pressure/lawsuits.... Why not set up shop on a nice little island country? Move the servers. Look at the beach through office windows. Maybe lunch on the beach. Umbrella drinks.... Oh well, it was a thought.... what the heck ;-)
