I'd say all the line-by-lines have been taking longer lately.
I'm not playing as much.
I'll just say that, for me, a lot of fun has been lost in these line-by-lines by people who rarely post, yet complain that they are left out of quickly moving threads. As a result I post only once, rarely more, to get my name in the game; and only if I get to choose, do I try to make it a marathon.
I know I may be stirring up a hornets nest, but it is how I feel.
