Personally I found the Castle to be 99% a waste of time and bandwidth. Mostly Clay Death spamming his stupid photoshop images(99% of which were in poor taste and low talent).
So, let's say you hated meatballs and a stranger invites you in his home, gives you every nice treatment possible, talks to you nicely, listens to you all day and gives you moral support, but gives you to eat meatballs, do you spit them in his face and throw him out of his house?
This was T4U for CD, FedFanForever, he treated it like his home, and us like family. Yes, he was a great fan of his photoshop images, which he shared with everyone who wanted them. Not everyone appreciated them, that's for sure, but he was being kind to everyone back. His only sin in all this matter was that he was too impatient and too rash to delete so many posts. Although I didn't like all his artwork (I prefer my own artwork all the time), I respect the work he always put into it because it was for everyone to feel better. It was his view, his image on how to share happiness.
And like John said above, everyone else was and is free to contribute here however they like. I contributed the Rankings freely, and despite still posting them along with my rankings in the open era project on MTF, I have a soft spot for this community because how I feel most people are around here. Forgiving, not vengeful.
I for one don't yet feel so ready to forget about CD. Not until I exhausted every opportunity to convince him to come back.
