Well, I haven't heard of anything called the great schism, but I think I might know what you are talking about. As you might know Auntie Dee Dee was the top admin of the forums for a good long time. But a few months ago, Bobby Henderson himself, the head honcho, came around, and he thought that Auntie Dee Dee was being a little too strict with the forum, so he removed her from her post. She, as well as other moderators and members, left the forums altogether. Many of them went to the Toadfish Monastery, which I can tell ya'll about later. I'd call it more of an exodus than a schism though. But this might not be what you're talking about at all.

He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.
"If it turns out that there is a God, I don't think that he's evil. But the worst that you can say about him is that basically he's an underachiever."
