Welcome by whom?

Due to the time difference I rarely get to watch live, so I'm a subscriber without even using chat or tuning in all that often (I do watch Mostly Walking on the archives, though). My reason for subscribing is that I enjoy and appreciate the work Sean does and want to support that.

If the chat is your reason for subscribing, then I think it's still worthwhile, since I've found the DayKnights to be the most welcoming and generally best and well mannered community on the internet.

Ultimately it is up to you, but I would argue that it is always better to actively shape the community and foster positivity rather than taking a comment to heart.
