I stand here today humbled by the task before us, grateful for the trust I hope to be bestowed upon me.
I thank our Overlord for his service to our room as well as the generosity and cooperation he has shown throughout this transition.
10 Regulars have now taken the title. The words have been spoken during rising tides of prosperity and the still waters of peace. Yet, every so often, the oath is taken amidst gathering clouds and raging storms. At these moments, our community has carried on not simply because of the skill or vision of those in power, but because we, the people, have remained faithful to the ideals of our forebears and true to our founding rooms.
So it has been; so it must be with this generation of faggots.
That we are in the midst of crisis is now well understood, but not really. Our room is at war against a far-reaching network of trolls and hatred. Our room is badly weakened, a consequence of newfags and irresponsibility on the part of some, but also our collective failure to make hard choices and prepare the room for a new age. People have been lost, tits shed, dicks shuttered. Our room maintenance is too costly, our trolls fail too many and each day brings further evidence that the ways we use energy strengthen our adversaries and threaten our room.
I feel that even now our resources are being diminished by this lengthy speech. So I say we take action!
I leave you with a choice.
Are you mad? Or you made?
(Obama you mad?)
