Thread: I quit.

  1. #1

    Default I quit.

    Hey guys,

    It's been a fun couple of years. I learned a lot, yada yada. It was fun talking to you guys and there are a lot of really good guys and girls around this place who have been extremely helpful and generous. And also thanks again to Grant and the mods for doing such a wonderful job.

    That being said, I've gone on hiatus before and found it helpful. This time however, I think it's going to be for an indefinite length of time. I really have a bunch of other things to do, and I need a self-imposed exile.

    I'm not leaving on any kind of bad terms. In fact, I may still log in from time to time as i want to see how some of you are doing. But I'm not going to participate any more in the forums for the foreseeable future.

    Sorry, I couldn't leave you with a more eloquent goodbye, but this is kind of snap decision.

    Smell ya later!

    Cheers,

    Ted

    Hey Indie,

    Take your break and then come back. Do what you have to do and come back and say hello once in a while. We will miss you until then.

    Please don't say goodbye, that's forever.

    hands down worst news of the year. You ruined my friday night. seriously.
    In both open posts and private messages, I've enjoyed very much your taste in frags, your many adventures (often involving ravenous and/or multiple exotic foreign girls) and your singular narrative voice. Basenotes will never have another storyteller like you Ted. Voice of a generation and such.

    Please do poke in and say hi, you're one of the Greats.

    But still, Ted, come back as soon as you can, and feel free to take a peek from time to time!

    These "I quit/am leaving" threads are all the rage nowadays, arent they?

    I understand that a busy life would mean that a person cannot spend a whole lot of time on any certain website, but wont it take like all of 2 minutes to log in and post a message/check up on new reviews, even if it is only once or twice a week ? I would rather limit my activity on a site rather than leave it totally, especially if I have made some friends there and would like to keep in touch.

    Ofcourse if a person isnt interested in the contents of a site anymore and is leaving because of that, thats a plausible reason too.

    Goodbye Ted,
    All the best. I appreciate you're doing it this way - much better than when people just disappear without any form of goodbye.
    Thanks for your unique, insightful contributions and best wishes in your endeavours.

    Aw man, I'm really going to miss your posts and stories as well. Damn, today was a not so great day and this just made it horrible. Best of luck though, you'll be missed!

    Hey Ted, take care and best of luck!

    I can tell you are leaving not because you're losing interest but due to circumstances or events in your life.

    Please come back again when you are feeling better.


    ----------

    Oh and Renato, I am one of those people who just disappeared without saying goodbye, because I know I will always pop back into this forum. Members come and go here, you are the oldest member on this board - your 'farewell' is something I will never expect to see!

    Sorry to burst your bubble but Ive seen him on those total gym infommercials. He doesnt look to good. If he tried to roundhouse me it looks like he'd pull his groin and break his leg in 5 different places.


    But the fight to the pain can be arranged too. Even though a 5 year old could win that just by kicking you in your shin. Now thats painful.

    Ok hows this. I have an older sister. Shes 19. Three years older. Every week I could expect one from her. After the third time I got hit my reflexes were so great she couldnt get me no matter how hard she tried. I have a story that will make you cringe. I was pretty short when I was ten, and I had to change a lightbulb in our foyer.; I got a chair and went to work putting the lightbulb in. I was on my tippytoes stretched to the max. My sister runs up the stairs and punches me right in the balls. I was on the ground crying for 15 minutes. No joke.

    Haha I didnt really know him. Plus he's already gone so no use in saying anything else about it. Everyone saying how sad it is isnt going to bring him back. However an angry mob of you guys wearing TM Cologne could probably go to his house and force him to come back. I say TM Cologne because its the SS thing, plus all of you guys wearing all the scents you wear, would definitely clash and he'd smell you from miles away :P
