If I were gonna leave DU
I would just leave.

I wouldn't feel it necessary to espouse my reasoning.

Why is it necessary to do this. I think it only creates more division and people should not be allowed to do it.

Now I can sympathize and understand why one would want to leave. I have been pissed and let down on many occasions. But if one is at this point what does it matter if they have their last word.

When I read these posts I never post in them because it feels like giving a false sense of sympathy. "Please don't go", "We need you", etc.

I wouldn't need to hear those words if I were leaving and I wouldn't find it necessary to give a reason, because I believe the two are at odds with one another. If you really want to leave, then just leave.

Now this post is not directed at one poster or another, but brought on by the increase of these types of posts lately.

Just go if you want to, please don't try to manipulate the board by saying you have to leave because it so "unfair".

It's a god damn message board for christ sakes!

7. Parting is such sweet sorrow.
Farting on the other hand, well, I never could understand the drama queens on this or any other board. Just fucking leave, people will forget you in time. It is okay, everything is going to be alright. I agree with you MassDemm, people like to put on a show.

I like reading those "I'm leaving" posts.
I find them amusing.

Like you said 'It's a message board" .
I left for 6 (maybe 7, 8?) months last year.

I didn't feel the need to announce it,
and noone missed me anyway!

15. I have left other forums
but it's always been a case of simply not being able to do it any more. There have been no dramatic declamations, no packed suitcases and tearful recriminations, just a quiet nip out the back door, never to return.

Should this one march toward rigid orthodoxy, the chances are very good that I'll leave this one, too.

My absence will not be noticed, and that's OK.

17. I notice a bunch of posters whose dramatic departure
turned out to be as dishonest as the rest of their rhetoric.

I know of one whom I have seen post "I am going and never coming back" at least three times.

21. I think those who post
their 'departure'
must need alot of attention.

Like babies,
no,
more like crybabies.

"Look a me, you've been mean to me .
I'm so nice to everyone. bwahhh,
I'm running away" :nopity: :nopity:

18. DU is an addiction and those who are telling us they are leaving
will never actually be able to leave.
The ones that just get pissed off about something that was written here will be so mad that they will just leave and will not take the time to tell us that they are leaving.

It is all talk, looking for someone to tell them that they matter. Yes they matter but I am not going to spend my time telling these people that "We NEED THEM"

I don't get these long, drawn out good-byes. If I decided to leave, as I did another board I posted on for years, I would just leave.

You're no fun. But thanks for doing your part of keep the temperature down. I've left too. Just do it, if you need it.
