Food for Thought: Live together, die alone

Lost only has seventeen hours left. That's the sad truth of the matter -- after those seventeen hours are up, no more Lost. The story will be complete, character fates resolved. And the sad thing is, most Lost fans will experience these episodes separately. The Lost community, I hate to say, is too divided. Fans affiliate themselves to one site and then do not venture to explore any other facets of the Lost community.

We have eight months until the season six premiere. Some are dreading this long hiatus, but I look at it as an opportunity to unite these different factions into one big fan community in time for the season six premiere. The sixth season will probably be the best season of Lost yet, and it'd be a shame for us to go about watching it divided into factions. The fanbase is such a thriving and diverse community that it shouldn't be segmented into different parts. It should be one big family that all happen to enjoy the same television show.

Now, I'm not saying that anyone should stop visiting a certain site and move to another. But spread out a little bit. Here's my challenge to you: venture out to a fansite that you've never visited before. Spend a little time with their community. Chat with them about the show. Invite them to spread out a little bit too, to check out other Lost sites (but don't advertise -- that's a big no-no). Help this great community become a little more connected to each other, because hey, live together, die alone, right?
