Well, I have to say that I have begun to feel similarly, I haven't been here as long as you have, but I have felt the changes since I first came here.
Then I step back and say, "But PerlMonks is pretty damn good, anyway."

P.S. My biggest fear is that one day I will log on and none of the original people are still here. And that is what I have already begun to see somewhat. :-(
Update: Here are some more:
- When merlyn was a saint...
- When all my posts fit on one page...
- When Saints in our Book was ordered by number of writeups...
- (I don't think I was around for this, and if I am not mistaken...) When you didn't have to be a monk to put images on your home node...
