Fine, you don't like what you see? I don't care. Everything is going to be judged on how the actual merger works, not what you expect.
Maybe you should re-read how the merger will work. We're using mostly our rules, not theirs.
Like what Toy said, /anon/ is kind of its own bit of people who like to post without a name. That's what they like, fine by me. They're happy to do as they please, and I don't mind seeing anons post elsewhere. Hell, many of them are from /mlp/ when they started to crack down, so they're used to posting anonymously.
I don't really know anything about Orange's issue, or the Thony farewell.
And, well, it's going to go badly if you keep living in the past. Besides, who really cares what we call the site? I honestly care way more about the actual people in it, and we'll see how it goes when it happens.
