I haven't been on UG that much over the last 3-4 years with a whole lot being different for me, the core of which is that I'm away from home most of the year for uni now.
As a disclaimer on my blog, it's there entirely for me when I need to vent to myself, if that makes sense. If you want to read or comment, go right on ahead, but don't get offended if I don't reply. As I said, it is there for me. I have my reasons for it being in a public forum; don't question it.
