    If you don’t want to frequent the site anymore, don’t frequent the site anymore. Why make a spectacle of it? Never understood that but I see it all the time on these forums.

    Maybe, in the case of long-time posters, they want to say goodbye?

    Some have to let you know how they have been wronged by a free service. Maybe to encourage their like-minded followers to join in and correct the injustice that had been perpetrated. Or something.

    Greetings in the new year. I read the few posts, above, and would really like to know what the problem is. We had a few weeks of very intermittent connectivity - without anyone with authority giving us any information (at least that I can recall) - but in the past week, or so, I have had not connection issues. There also was some talk in other threads about spammers or trolls. I have not seen any of this either. Anyway, I submit this post because I sincerely want to understand members' concerns. This forum is one of my favorite places on the internet, and I would hate to see long-time users depart.
    Hope everyone has an awesome 2019!

    I left strat-talk because I thought there were too many cry babies and political psychopaths trying to dominate the scene there.

    It might just be time for some to move on after the changes of new ownership, or it could be personal life, any number of things.

    As far as any drama, I try not to judge on those accounts because I have been in similar situations. Usually emotions are involved and they can be quite tricky. It's easy enough to think one would always be composed, measured and rational. I'm afraid things don't always work that way with most of us.

    I used to participate in a martial arts forum where members who chose to leave the site often did so by getting themselves banned in a glorious blaze of pornography.

    That's commitment, right there.

    Long-time members make friends and want to let others know they are taking a break. I see nothing wrong with that. They also take some good Tele knowledge and expertise when they go.

    Neither DIY nor random. Lots of poo, as I recall.
