I'm Starting To Get It
Tuesday, August 14, 2007

Just in case you haven't noticed the older members of this site leaving in droves, I'd just like to say that I get it.

I understand why people are leaving because I'm on the verge of it myself.

This is/was supposed to be a fun site. This is for entertainment purposes only! There's no need to correct and fight and scratch at each other. Trust me, I'm trying hard to avoid it myself.

3+ years I've been on this site, and today, for the first time, I've seen things that make me want to literally smash my computer just so I never have to see them again.

A break...that's what I need. A little break.

See ya.

What can I say, Pez? Evolution can suck. Btw, she hammered me on that thread, but did have the grace to kinda apologise to me via a PM.

Mind you, I'm the kind of eedjit that wonders upon the consequences of the out-take, the one where River realises her marriage to her brother Simon. Now that would be worthy television!

Go you for sticking it out! Don't let anyone drive you away!

Of course, now I'm all wondering what it is that's so awful... Whatever, I hope you defeat it!

HUGS and glad you aren't leaving...I'm not sure why, with our powerful common bond, we are fighting amongst ourselves...then I remember our BDH and how much they bicker..and I know it's ok and we'll all work it out as long as none of us go storming off and board another ship.

Having given this some thought, I've decided that I'll be damned before I let someone else run me off this site. Avoidance would solve the problem to my satisfaction; however, the problems I've been seeing here are like a cut on the roof of your mouth. It's never going to heal if you don't leave it alone. I'll will give it the effort.

For the record, it was NOT an RWE that caused this. It was a regular thread in plain sight. I've never frequented the RWE on purpose. I'm here to talk Firefly or Serenity...not politics.

Trust me, if I can't get this under control, everyone will know about it. Cause I won't be able to keep my mouth shut.

Besides, I didn't say I was leaving for good. Just taking a break's all.

Well, I'm fairly old, both in real years and in time spent on this site. I don't post much anymore but do visit at least twice a day, same for and the Firefly forum at, as well as a few others.

It doesn't matter where you go, some people seem to need that space to vent about politics, but I stay clear of those forums, and have no other complaints about this site.

Ahhh, if that's what it is, that explains it.

Real world forum arguments are damaging and hard on folks, unless you really like to argue and most of us don't.

I stay away from the RWED forum... scary place as Anony likes to say.

I can only guess this is another RWED related problem. I say that because I haven't seen anything in the other forums worth getting upset over. I've said it before and I'll say it again, arguing in RWED will get you as far as a hampster running on a wheel.

Wow, another member of this board announcing they're leaving. What in the world is going on?

ManwithPez, I will miss you. I've not had occasion to talk to you often, but I've read your posts and enjoyed your participation here.

What in the world is everyone running into on this board that is causing this?
What happened?
