Good Luck and Goodbye Everyone

Due to what I feel was an inappropriate comment directed at me, I will be saying goodbye for now.  I have enjoyed this site and the input everyone shares...Happy Cruising ...

Wish you wouldn't go... you kept the conversation lively.  

Just a personal observation but you might want to not take comments too personally. What one person says casually and without negative intent may come across the wrong way to someone else.  With language barriers, age differences, use of mobile devices, etc... there are lots of ways a harmless comment can go sideways.  Unless someone says "you are an *E750W*E* directed to me personally, I don't get too tied up in knots about online chatter.

If you have a concern, flag the questionable comment and contact admin to review it.

It was not directed at you.   I tried to express that, but the thread was removed in record time.   I mentioned those two threads because they were the ones I remembered at the time.  

Look, there was a time I told FV about this site. You know what they said?  There's only about 8 people posting. Now, the site is bigger, and it's hard to post interesting topics. Believe me, Glomarrone & I know how hard.   It seemed like we were the only ones here for awhile. A straggler would come by and post one or two items, and leave.

Regardless, as I believe, and stated, some of the threads seemed somewhat banal.   It was that way at FV too, and I stated it there.....but no one quit the site over it.   It was my opinion, and I stand by it.    It can be very frustrating to scan through some of these threads.  I'm sure some feel the same way about mine.  I'd hate to think someone would leave over something they felt was directed at them, that I wrote. For that I apologize. It was not my intent.

And for what it's worth, if you think THAT was inappropriate, I was accused of being gay when I was on FV.   The sock puppet kept saying they had proof ( they didn't ) except I'm married for 29 yrs, but they kept putting it out there.  THAT!    is inappropriate.

I must have missed the post in question.   I do hope that you stay.   You have kept the forum active and added a lot of new topics.  Some of us old timers have gotten burned out on thinking up new topics and the new blood is always welcome.

 

I hope that you reconsider and decide to stay.  If you leave you will be missed Sad

To be honest, I agree with BAK1061. Some posts don't have a question for people to respond to, some titles are so non-specific I have no idea what the real topic is unless I open it up and run through all the commentary... which I don't always have time for. Lastly, the topics scroll through so fast that unless I am on the site a few times a day, I miss entire conversations.
Nothing career ending though.
A few adjustments and Tah Dah... it's all good.

Please, please reconsider.  We need more captains here and you are well on your way.  I love seeing so many of your posts and try to reply to each of them.  You have made a lot of friends here - at least I feel like your friend here.  Crying I for one will miss you if you leave. Gloria

Hope you do reconsider.
Perhaps think this over... Posting Mindfulness. When posting numerous topics in order to make Captain level, take a moment before hitting submit to consider if it is a worthwhile topic or something intended to tick up the point total. That's what I ask myself.
