That's a fair analysis.  On the other hand there is the tendency for
stories, especially cascades to run on endlessly.  People had a lot of
fun writing Retcon Hour but I wonder who reads that any more because
it ended up becoming bloated.  Sometimes you have to wrap things up
and move on to the next story.  LNH V2 #50 has already grown to the
point where, when it finally gets posted, it will have to be posted in
multiple parts.  Rather than telling people not to read it, I am
actually worried that people won't read it.  That should be a very
real concern for anybody who has contributed to it.

You know when the LNH started, the killfile was considered the enemy.

Then later on rec.arts.comics.misc EVERYONE who wrote LNH stories was
considered a troll by the majority of users because we were writing
stories on a discussion group.  That is why RACC was created in the
first place so that people could post stories and not have to worry
about dealing with childish insults.
