My subscription expires today and I won’t be renewing. Actually, it was supposed to expire Monday, but with the extension and all…
I thought for a long time whether to post this thread or just sort of disappear like so many other Dopers have. I’ve been accused of being an attention whore sometimes, and it may even be true, ( ). I didn’t know if I should post why I was leaving, or just leave it out. (I’ve since decided to leave it out…let’s just say I feel it is for the best.) I may be back when there is free posting.
In the end, I figured, nearly everyone on a message board has some sort of attention-whorishness in them. And I really wanted to say thank you and good bye to the nice Dopers.
So, thank you to:
** Cervaise ** – for being so fucking funny it hurts
**Rick ** – for helping me diagnose my car trouble
All of the Mumpers, of course
Miller , for when he uses one-liners, he can occasionally even beat Cervaise
Really Not All That Bright …just because
**Revenant Threshold ** for an amazingly nice and generous compliment he gave me not too long ago
Ascenray for teaching so much about Indian culture…even teaching me some things, especially on caste. That goes for Dervorin , indian , and for the other Indian or semi-Indian Dopers.
What Exit? Just for being SUCH a nice guy. I mean, he’s like a big puppy. Saint Bernard, probably.
Kalhoun , Dangerosa , Diosa Bellisima , Rubystreak , rigs , and all of the other strong women of the Dope, even when I have disagreed with them on one thing or another
Malacandra , Arr Matey! , Skald the Rhymer , FinnAgain , and numerous others for opening my mind to a myriad of different things
SkipMagic for being a friendly guy
All of the people I interacted with during the various exchanges
All of the people I interacted with in Café Society…the forum that made it most worthwhile to be here.
Czarcasm for being extremely down to earth and sensible
OtakuLoki , for reminding me that sometimes it’s OK to be selfish
And lots lots more, especially the regular contributors in GQ, who really take their time to answer questions patiently. But I know there’s tons of people I have missed.
Lots of love to:
Swampy - happybirthday!
Mr Bus Guy
And dozens others. Thanks to all of the Dopers for making this such a fun place to be!
So - bye!
