• We are now running on a new, and hopefully much-improved, server. In addition we are also on new forum software. Any move entails a lot of technical details and I suspect we will encounter a few issues as the new server goes live. Please be patient with us. It will be worth it! :) Please help by posting all issues here.
  • The forum will be down for about an hour this weekend for maintenance. I apologize for the inconvenience.

I truly thank the majority of you for countless and great conversations, not to mention in-person friendships over the years.

As for the rest, well, Aloha. I wish you all the best life has to offer. Make the most of it!

Since9, your passive-agressive commentary placed in your signature block, which permeates to your very first to your last forum post, does nothing to mitigate your exhibited bullying attitude and narcissistic ego but will show everyone for posterity!

Since9’s current signature block, quote
Most people here are great, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed your company over the years! Sadly, a few people are royal jerks, if not downright trolls, and have ruined the forum for everyone else. I’m off to better moderated and much less spoiled pastures. Unquote

Sorry since9 you believe a few ‘are royal jerks’ but i find it interesting you keep getting bit by your own historical paper trail...let’s seee...

29 Jan 2011 Since9 Quote:
I'm just about out of here. Too many abuses by just one or two abusers, and way too little appropriate moderator-level input to help steer the board back on course. Hands-off approaches don't work on any ship, surface, sky, or submarine, and certainly not on message forums. What does result is chaos, abuse, and anarchy. Our founding fathers wanted a small government, but they did recognize the need for some government.

I've done my best, but it's time to move on to fairer winds and waters. Unquote.

Interestingly I wasn’t a even member back then...

Statistically speaking since9, you seem to have whined extensively about ‘one or two’ distractors since before 2011 and of late...perhaps there is something wrong with the way you conduct yourself, eh?

Oh sorry since9 you couldn’t get the moderator position on the forum you were after...

Mate, ya’ll watch out for the PIEs in those less spoiled pastures you’re going to roam...

I guess it's just me, but I've never understood the need to publically announce one's leaving a forum as if vacating the throne or some such.

If one wants to leave just leave.

Thin skin? Some people can't handle any disagreement or even detailed discussion. (On the other extreme, some crave argument and fireworks.) Discussion requires some give and take. Takes all kinds. So does life.

S9, hope you stick around. Hope everyone else does too. I appreciate everyone here, no exceptions. Disagreement doesn't equal disrespect.

BTW, here is an obligatory ironic public announcement per Ghost guidelines: I myself am leaving!!! Sort of. Just temporarily. Keep my throne uh potty uh, humble chair warm. No, not because of what anyone ever said or didn't say - sheesh, let's not make snowflakes and cliques the norm, thick skin is desirable if you want to see the world and have a chat. Take that in stride.

But I've had too many health problems lately along with work pressures, so have to put all my energy on those for a bit. Wanted to apologize for being scarce lately, but truly no choice. Gotta focus all my might on getting well and getting paid, until I recover and get caught up.

However as old Ahnold would say:



See all y'all pretty soon!

HP995, always remember to keep & maintain your health above all else!

Go well, best always, and I’ll look for your smile sooner rather than later...

Cheers
