Not to often do I



  • The problem with option #1, is that friends and acquaintances of the person that is expressing a desire to leave, don't ever seem to stop and ask why. Instead there seems to be a fervor that brews until it overflows and it is like an angry mob that has no idea what they are angry about or why they are even protesting. So good people get drawn into doing something they normally wouldn't, simply because they didn't stop to investigate.

    option #2 gives all parties time to think things through and work things out if they are workable.

  • please understand i'm not being argumentative just for the sake of it.
    I can truly see the problem AND i'm removed from either side as I haven't been here that long (and I know that might be why I seem naive).
    But if I had an issue and my password was changed, I would view that as a good bye and good riddance ie. I said i'm leaving and you haven't even bothered to try to talk me out of it???
    I probably don't know what i'm talking about, so i'll bow out here, but I can see it's not an easy issue to resolve, I just worry about the consequences of doing that to someone who is probably already in a vulnerable state.
    I hope your solution helps everyone involved.

  • I would say that a good 95% or more of the members expressing the desire to leave in this manner, have already been conversing via PM with the moderators or administrator.
  • see there you go, I am naive 8>
    Wouldn't have guessed it was such a high percentage.
    Thanks C
    Option number one now makes sense to me.

    Hey everybody,
    I really hate to see this stuff go on here, The time and effort the moderators and authorities put in here and this is what happens, why would anyone want to do it. Who needs the extra stress? Then it pits staff against each other.
    I have a lot of respect for the people that put their time and effort into this website. I have been guilty of getting amped up on a subject or about someone who has flamed me here and I have been kindly reminded to take it back a notch by moderators here, and rightfully so. I hold no grudge.
    We all have different personalities, mix in some meds, and you never know what will happen. But no matter what threats have no place here.

  • Paul, it upsets me that someone sent you that kind of message, one of the reasons i havnt posted on here much lately,is because when i disagreed with a certain topic,i received alot of hate mail from other members and i felt threaten,so people who ingage in that kind of behavior should be banned....

    Any reason to do that to anyone!(not even my ex wife) image:)" alt=">:)" height="20" /> I've been upset by different people on here a few times. And if someone throws a stone you can bet your a$$ I'll throw one back. But to wish that on anyone is just sick. and that person should be turned in and baned!
    Good luck, Jim
