    It has been a fun few months but I think that I should move on. I spend too much time in front of the computer as it is. Posting stuff and responding to stuff on a political bulletin board has been amusing but I don’t see that much comes of it. I maintain my point of view and other people cling to their point of view. Take care. May whatever you believe in give you peace this time of years and throughout the years to come.

    I'm sorry you feel this way. The couple of months I've been on the board has been interesting to say the least. It takes a while, but I've been meeting some neat people here.

    One shouldn't expect to change people's minds about politics. Most people's minds are fixed already, but it's fun to banter back and forth. I think you get out of a messageboard what you put into it. But you also have to find people that you can relate to.

    I bid you peace.

    why do people feel the need to announce their exit? it reminds me of.....life is but an actor who struts and frets upon a stage, full of sound and fury...signifying nothing...(forgive me my rusty quotes)

    I don't mind it because sometimes I'm left wondering what happened to the people who leave. I don't hear from some people and I wonder if that person got sick or worse. I guess, you can tell I get attached pretty easily...:eusa_angel:

    Yes, that is correct. That is one of the most dissatisfying parts of internet friendships. It's too easy to drop out. Just because it's a cyber relationship doesn't make it less real to me. I have time and emotions invested. It may be my own fault, I don't have a great ability to guard myself. If I am a friend, I am a friend. I don't go halfway. That's my 2 cents.

    When I left a message board a while back I just e-mailed the admin and asked them to delete my account. No thread announcement was needed.

    Again? How many times does this make this year? If you'd held out another week, it could be a 2009 thing ...

    Admit it ... you'll be back after you manage to get laid.:lol:
