Dee and Herman had been rather cryptic about the outcome -- it was clear some resolution had been arrived at, but that some outstanding details still needed ironing out. They had said an announcement was due soon, but then had to ask people to wait a bit longer, as these last details were taking more time than anticipated. I then got notification in my email that sme of my DriveThru purchases had been updated, specifically my V&V purchases. I hope that everything was settled as fairly as possible all around. Personally, I'm curious to see what form V&V 3 takes, and if the rumours that people like Bill Willingham might get involved again come to fruition.

I've read elsewhere some peanut gallery comment that shows the drama isn't finished, but camps are camps.

I'm glad it's over, I'm unsure what it means to me, quite frankly.

What?!? There is still drama? No! Say it ain't so! Has the hitherto previously pristine V&V community been irrevocably besmirched with the Mark of Cain?!? Is it drama forever now?!?

I have to admit that I'm a little tired of it all. I used to be a big fan and I'm really not interested in it anymore. Part of it is certainly that I'm not interested in fueling either camps with my money. <shrug>
