OK, so the server is down and most likely will never be back (I did email Reed with an option he didn't respond to), so I don't really see the problem of discussing alternate servers.
I would think Reed would feel good knowing most of us all moved to the same server and stayed friends.
For me? I'd be interested in a 'new' server, a recently wiped server or an existing one offering a new channel independent of the other. There is nothing better for me to start new and have everyone around me new as well.
