No I'm not stopping growing cps, but blowing this joint. Obviously since I've been here for 1.5 years I should give a good reason.
Terraforums is a great place with good potential-but TOO much potential. I mean by that-it has expanded so that there are a gigantic diversity of people. Now at school, work, colleges,etc. There are a lot of people with diversity, but you don't have to interact with all of them. On a forum everyone is connected, and anyone can post in a topic that interests them. Since views differ so much, there are way too many "debates" which are pretty close to flame wars. I should point out that any sarcasm online looks caustic, even if it isn't intentionally mean.
We should follow the example at CPUK, which I am a member of but rarely post, just because it is hard to keep up with. They moderate their forums more strictly, not in a superficial sense but in a friendly, no conditions authority.
What I'm getting at is with so many debates on religion, etc. it is sort of depressing for people who do have a religion to have to come back every other fifteen minutes to counter some sort of twist on words or technicality of wording in your post, etc.
I won't be taking any hate from TF, no grudges or specific anger on any member. I'll be taking an impression of TF along with other places I've been and left, and a lot of it is white and some of it is black. You can never depend on certain people, a certain group for something. And if you're in a place like that, and have an option of leaving, take the risk and blow the joint because there can only be more harm
End note: And don't bann me or something, and don't lock this topic it isn't breaking any rules .. even though I'm leaving if I happen to be in a desperate CP dilemma i still might post in the nepenthes section or something. As for another note-some of you might be surprised by the paths a few of our former members have taken-surprised and angered ..when I come back here i better not get any soft soap or bloody bullets thank you, that is all. And thank you to all the moderators at TF, all the members that I've become friends with, the people who haven't broken the trust I've been able to put in them. You've put a lot of time into a peaceful hobby we all love, and for that you have some respect
