I like it when posters say good bye, especially if they have been around quite a while. Otherwise, I might worry.

Agree, I get to feel like I know many of the longer term posters, and like them.

Of course, I would prefer that when someone leaves, he leave without calling everyone still here a bunch of useless losers who have fallen from some formerly high standard.

In truth, it was much tougher around here 4 or 5 years ago. More straight up aggression, less of the always charming passive variety.

Yep. Once we closed down the meth labs, chased off the drug dealers and bulldozed the crack houses the number of drive by flamings went way down...

I quit the forum yesterday & didn't tell anybody I was going - but I haven't really been around that long, so nobody to miss me (sniff )

I came back today though, so nobody really knew about the whole "quitting" thing

With this diverse a group, I'm not sure that is possible. Always someone to take offense, no matter what the subject, opinion, or question.
