But the stupid idiots who voted to Leave the soapbox unrestored didn't know what they were voting for, and were lied to about what not restoring the soapbox actually meant. No-one told them that Leaving the soapbox unrestored meant that everyone would get unsubscribed and the whole of CP could collapse. In any case the option wasn't to Leave the soapbox unrestored, but to restore the soapbox and just make people pay for it, with an open cheque for CP to charge what they like. Oh and no-one would be allowed to post to it anyway. In fact it's probably not legal to Leave the soapbox unrestored, and even if people voted to Leave it unrestored, by the time CP got around to not restoring it then maybe everyone would have changed their minds, or if not then they'd have died anyway, so what does it matter? Just have another poll until everyone agrees to restore the soapbox.

During his later adult life he struggled with debilitating health problems, for which medical treatments of the time were not effective.
