Personally speaking, should I ever find I've had enough of the forum then I'd find it easier and far less hassle to just not be here one day. It really is as simple as stopping typing. But clearly not everyone sees it the same way.
Agree 100% mate.
Personally I think it's more of a cold turkey/ addiction thing (ie you won't be tempted to post if you're banned and thus have more time to devote to whatever's going on in your life).
How hard is it to simply stop typing?? Unless you happen to be one of the "forum celebrities"- who's going to notice anyway?
