Yeah it's kind of hard to be patient when
-A deadline is given and then not met, and we've been repeatedly dealing with delay after delay after delay after delay. It's understandable to justify expecting them to delay again.
-Aside from MSN and some other IRC I go to (which is not really a furry IRC in the first place) this is my only link to the furry world, and I know no other site like it that all of my closest friends go on.
-In response to those who are "get your porn fix somewhere else". Note that not everyone that goes on FA goes there for the porn. I know I sure don't, I don't even like that stuff. I go there to meet new friends, submit my art, meet some people that I wouldn't meet at somewhere like DA for example. If you want to suggest a place for me to hang out until it's back up be my guest, but there's a good chance I won't be sticking around if it's full of complete strangers (while I do like to make friends, I'm not exactly the type to jump in a spot unless I know at least a few of my closest friends are there).
-And yes, I've been doing things other than FA. Browsing around other places, swimming, watching movies, helping my mom with cutting the grass, cleaning up my late granny's yard, playing video games, etc. Doesn't mean I can't be annoyed when one of my favorite sites is down for a long amount of time, especially when I think it's going to be up a certain date and then I find out it'll be up another, then that day comes and then another delay, and another, and another, etc.
Just my two cents.
