I'm still here because I really love ~ and that sounds so lame, but it's true ~ I love most of y'all. Truth is with the severe, heavy handed and way too personally equated moderation that hit us last year? I've seen peeps that I adored gone and peeps that I hated gone, too.
Life is one old mixed box of chocolates, but I do miss collateral damage. Yoyo, et al . . .
It what it is, peeps.

I try not to get in a situation were my back is to the wall and I've drawn a line in front of me. I try to let things go. I may rant and rave but I know that's all it is. This community is still one of the best on the net and the folks here are top notch.
I want to thank you all.
Was thinking last night about all the wonderful folks who have helped me my whole life. Many were strangers . Like the several peeps who have jump started my car when I was stranded. I can think of three times in particular.

I'm not sure where the "heavy handed moderation" comment comes from. I've made it a point to keep a VERY hands-off approach to these forums when moderating. There have been only a few threads that I've moved to the appropriate forums, a few users banned (spammers), and little more than that.
I also am still in the dark as to why YoYo left. Someone may have told me, so if you did, I apologize that I forgot. Would be nice to see him and a few other old-timers back here.

YoYo left largely because he simply deplores acrimony. All the pissing contests and running battles, the name calling, the character assassinations... (Of course I had nothing to do with any of that. Nope. Not me. Heehee).
Don't know if he still lurks occasionally, but if he does, he must see that the the 'Box in particular is pretty sleepy by comparison. Too devoid of controversy or debate, IMHO. A little contention now and then keeps one on their tippy-toes, methinks. We need a little #Occupy AppleCentral!
I am still here (erm, on and off) b/c I want to keep posting until I am on the first page of the User List or Japan sinks, whichever comes first. And because I enjoy the people here. I really don't know how special this place is comparatively, as I only go here and one sumo wrestling forum, but I still think it's special. My spleen venting in "possible meltdown" is the cherry on top. : )
