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.
Thanks Jules,I feel exactly the same way.Just don't show up anymore....no explainations or fanfare.Just simply leave and don't come back.Even if you decide to leave and state your reasons for doing so,there will still be speculation and inuendo, as to what your "real" reasons were,or your state of mind,or what or whom caused your departure.
Just slip out the back door,and don't say good bye,because your intentions will never be truly understood anyway.Just my 2 cents.But having said that....this applies to me,and I'll not judge anyone else for what they decide to do.Having been NYPD for over 20 years,I've seen some ......radical human behavior....so to each their own.
