Goodbye Everyone

Rather than just disappear, I'd like to say thanks to everyone who gave me help, taught me stuff, the many friendly members.



The ‘Music’ threads are more rewarding and less confusing than equipment threads.  I agree that this forum can be uninviting, confusing and combative.  It also contains much good advice, but filtering and separating useful from misguided can be difficult.


Thank you for letting us know your reasons, that's very considerate of you.

It is an awful big world out there and we here are mostly just like ships passing in the night.

It has been a pleasure reading your contributions here.

None of them ever threatened to make my blood pressure rise.


Even if the OP doesn’t agree, an acknowledgement of someone/anyone’s efforts could/should be noted,

Yes, you're right, a little more politeness is never a bad thing.

I'm sure your decision was not lightly taken but you always know where we are.

Best of luck with any health issues. 


Sorry to see you leave but your comment about the lack of manners on the site is right on point. I have seen so many ask questions and not even bother to acknowledge the people who take the time to answer. Sometimes, someone would ask for clarification on a question in order to give a qualified answer and the OP would just ignore the post. You can’t get the world rid of jerks, you just have to ignore them. Hope you change your mind. 

@elliottbnewcombjr  It's not about pride, but too often I feel I'm wasting my time.

No good deed goes unpunished!
