    Though my life has kept me quite busy these days, I have continued on as a lurker here, and check kotaku a few times a week. It was quite shocking to me to see that two of the three sites I frequent (the third being nintendoworldreport, or as it was, planetgamecube) directly connected to each other.

    This community was definitely good to me in my high school and college years!

    I'm terrified that that is going to happen a lot. I assume you're used to your kids discovering who you are, Sean.

    Actually, no students know (til tonight, I guess). Separate lives, true to the article...

    Is there anything professionally wrong with that being the case? I feel like we expect a lot out of our educators. Most of my friends who are teachers confirm this over and over again: they're not allowed to have lives outside of work.

    There is always just a little concern that when kids know something personal about you that they will view you differently (less professionally). On the other hand, I know a lot of teachers that play xbox live with students and add them on facebook. To each their own, I guess.

    It was a good article. I don't understand most of the nostalgic stuff but I do know that this site has greatly affected my life as well. It has brought me to a new country 1000 miles from home.

    Here's hoping it just makes you even more the cool teacher! I'm very curious to hear how they react.

    Way to be a shining example of our community, Azar. Seriously, so incredibly well-done.

    We need to have this clipped into EoFF history (*cough*Wiki*cough*) because it is too good to be forgotten among the rest of the nonsense in General Chat.

    Easily good enough for the General Archive once the thread stops getting posted in.

    Sephex: There's a good Cyanide & Happiness comic for that somewhere.

    Yeah, I've always said that Kotaku has nothing but terrible articles.
