I have been amused over the last year on looking on this site, at the people who seem to have to make a big production over leaving the board. To the point of being rather childish about it.
I think people get offended too easily at times, and then run off in a huff and virtually stand up and tell everyone why they are leaving, acting like they are just so superior than others. Attitudes such as I don't need this board anymore, I don't need these people anymore, acting as they are so much better than everyone else here. So much better that they don't have time for the "little people" anymore.
It reminds me a child in elementory school who gets mad because other kdis are playing the way they want to play. So they pick up their ball and say they are leaving. My ball, my game, screw you guys.
There have been thousands looking at this site, or posting. I encourage everyone to use the shopping store method when reading and posting.
When you go to a grocery store, do you buy everything there? No. Of course not. I happen to enjoy a good steak, but, somtimes it sits right next to liver. Do I get mad and angry because there is liver next to my steak? No! I simply choose not to buy it. I go to the store because it carries items that I do want. I only purchase a fraction of what is offered. I simply pick and choose.
When looking at postings, do I agree with the statements made in all of them? No, of course not. Do I get all mad and want to leave because someone hurt my feelings or made a statement I don't agree with? No. I can choose to debate, or comment, or go to the next posting that I may want to read or care about.
I simply choose what I want to read or comment on. And that is one of the wonderful things about this site.
But to act superior, head above the rest, and spout off that you have better things to do, as if we don't, is just childish. No better than the haughty people we talked about at the halls. Thought their shit didn't stink, and they would snub others.
There have been a few posters that had other things going on in their life, and left with dignity.
I'm sorry, but the whining is iritating. We all enjoy people on the board, some more than others, and that is what it is all about. If you don't want to be here anymore, leave. Just don't bitch about it on the way out.
