Ladies and gentlemen, it’s been a pleasure. I’ve enjoyed the SDMB as much as anything over the past 20 years, but as you may have noticed, I’ve grown increasingly irritable and argumentative over the past 2, 3 years because of things happening in my personal life… of which I’ve dropped hints… and the online universe of which I have put myself into has grown just as irritable and argumentative because of things happening outside our personal lives (and within them, as well).
And I’m not handling all of this well: when I get to arguing Food Banks in order to defend the ex-wife who… fuck, let’s just leave it at that, OK? … anyway, when I get to that point, it’s probably time for me to step back a bit and work some shit out, because that is just a very weird space to be in.
I’m not leaving, flouncing, or whatever – just going to be sending an email asking the mods for a temporary suspension* until one or more of the following occurs:
- I get the divorce worked through
- Trump resigns/dies/gets voted out/the Senate flips
- I need to re-up my sub in May
- I get the kid in college
When I get through 1 & 4 (or #2 happens), I’ll be back, ready to make the take that needs to be made. And I’ll have just one fuckin’ epic post about this divorce… you think my dramas in
Phone book delivery
… are something, just wait. Holy fucking shit.
But before I go, one last thing. As my actions were public, I feel that this should be as well:
(I’m 99.9972% sure he’s put me on ignore - if someone can volunteer to PM him this, that would be great.)
Again, thank you. And I’ll be back!
*Is there a variant where I can’t post, but can still PM?
