well, i'm sorry its come to this but my personal disagreement with another user has reached a point of no return and i'm not interested in continuing to be associated with them so i am going to be granting their original wish and deleting my account in a day or two here. i want to try to avoid causing friction as much as possible on the way out so i don't really want to get more into that.
i want to thank the admins for creating this little corner of the internet for us to hang out in, its too bad it never took off but in my opinion its better that it didn't. small communities are always better than massive conglomerates and this space always had a nice homey feel. i hope you keep up the development.
i've appreciated getting to know you all, apologies that i'm not a more social person and haven't gotten to know you better. if anyone wants to stay in contact, i'm not sure how i might approach that. over the years i've shed most of my internet presence outside of the few games i play, a handful of sites i lurk on and phuks so i don't have a solid go to for staying in touch but if anyone does want to we can figure something out. let me know if you have any recommendations for community driven social news aggregators, social media or what-have-you. i'm not sure if i want to continue using them but if anywhere fits well, i may.
i hope those i have political disagreements with will understand that they are losing a voice to counter some of the more ridiculous things they believe and that they should try to keep a little fluf in the back of their minds. i think there is often a stunning lacking of self-doubt, evidence and peer review in some of the grandiose statements that get made but i guess that's just the age we live in now. the opinions bandied about i liken to those from voat in that they are often based in an irrational fear or hate of a group of people you don't know. you don't like when others prejudge you based on the actions of others and widespread misconceptions, i hope you will consider the way you engage in that too. this isn't about political disagreements or insults, though. i don't mind those. being an oddball, i've dealt with them my whole life.
i'll see ya if i see ya and if i don't its been real. good luck to you all in all your future endeavors and may the flying spaghetti monster bless you in all that you do.
