QuoteHistory can not only be erased and/or forgotten, it can be re-written.
Quote1- You, like much of the public, have no idea of the specific details of "the SMF January split", so every time a non-team member cries that cry, I shake my head in bemusement at the psychology of groups and followers.
Quote4- the SMF Friends and team who were involved in one side or the other have all moved on. Why can't you?

Quote from: Kindred on April 29, 2011, 02:34:15 PMyup, pretty much.All of the people directly and indirectly involved have let it go, moved on, or rejoined.The only people obsessing over it, these days, appear to be those who were indirectly and tangentially involved in the fallout conversations.

History can (and frequently IS) rewritten -- sometimes it is immediately re-written. Remember "history is written by the winners".Perhaps I should be more clear though. $events != $history; $events['perception'] = $history;and perception is very easy to change.

Did you ever suffer the lost of a friend, relative or parent? Did you just wake up one morning and said "Oh, well... No more crying".It's the most ridicolous concept of saying this small as a software internal thing in comparision of something that can't be forgotten, such as a tragedy...But I think only a few people could talk about "forgetting" or "forgiving"... and there aren't in this thread right now...
