    Hey guys. Bob Loblaw here. Sorry this is a bit late but I guess I'm helping out until Going Concern gets its shit under control. For whatever reason, Greg thinks he's busier than me, but whatever.

Then I said, ‘Let’s not waste anyone’s time then, who wants to secede?’ and everyone cheered.” The secession is effective immediately.
