[QUOTE]LOL!! Coming from the guy who the majority of the board cannot stand.
Hey, remember when you acted like an attention-starved teenager by announcing your "retirement" from a public forum board? You remember that? Do you remember when an overwhelming majority of the posters who responded thought it was pathetic and were glad to see you go?
The irony is too rich.
To which retirement announcement are you referring?
Babe has actually retired from message boarding three times over the past eighteen months or so. Twice he returned to the board the very next day
In each of his three announcement threads though, more people urged him to stay than wished him good riddance. That's my recollection anyway
And FWIW, I do not think you are Rusty
Ache, I appreciate your honest testimony. I am also curious as to why you only seem to post these days relative to my activities here.
I only recall two "retirements". One was because numerous persons suggested that I was a disruptive influence on the board. I was leaving to allow peace, but many urged me to stay so I reconsidered because I felt it was wrong to abandon my fellow fans to contest the troll Rusty without my assistance. Though there was more to my decision to stay that that.
Then I sometime later was "banned". That alerted me to the reality that I was being too abusive toward my fellow fans. I returned and restricted myself to two threads for a number of days. Then the reset occurred. My original incarnation was reinstated. I endeavored to begin anew without the name calling and have adhered to that policy quite strictly. But I declared I would not adhere to anything regarding Rusty the troll (and possibly his fake accounts). And I will stand by that.
The second retirement was due to the mods anal deleting of so many posts. Between Rusty, the mods and the abysmal site performance this place simply sucks. My posts were few and far between for some time despite the many fellow fans that had urged me to carry on.
I am the type of person that just leaves when things suck. But despite the great sucking that exists here I have to admit to this point I cannot leave. And I cannot leave because of my fellow fans. I cannot leave because we have been through a lot together here. I cannot leave because I find kindred spirit with those who love this team so much they post multiple times daily about them.
I never announced I was leaving to seek attention. Lord knows I get all the attention I could ever want here. I did it because leaving my fellow fans that I have been sharing the fates of this team with without a word seemed wrong to me.
Several things about this site are infuriating and would prompt any poster to want to leave. But, pay no mind to me if I post that I'm leaving again. Because I probably won't and I probably won't because my fellow fans here are awesome fans that enhance the experience of being a Pats fan for me.
I thank them for their loyalty to the team and their good conversation.
