Yeah I suppose it is yet one more sad thing about how society forces us into the shadows. There's always this distance between CLs, sometimes I'm surprised we accomplish as much as we do in terms of just keeping these boards and small lines of communication open, even if it doesn't always work out all the time. Long distance friendships can be challenging enough to keep up for "normal" people as it is.
Anyway, I don't think it's for a lack of any desire for a GL brotherhood, but sometimes the challenge of keeping in touch is too much.
Take care and I'll try to be around a little more often.
