He probably got the same headache I get every couple days from staring at this damn screen. I just can't let go.

Good luck in your escape from this madhouse chip. Don't let the queen take your head.

the psychological toll these forums can take....

forums is like computerized high school. there are clics and when you post and no one responds you feel rejected.


saying goodbye is like a plea for attention.


this is a theory speculated by a friend of mine anyway.

OK guys, let's practice a little netiquette here:

The polite response to a good-bye post should be something like: "No, don't leave. We want you to stay. We all value your opinions and will miss your interesting posts."

Of course the writer of a good-bye post who really means good-bye will not be logging-in to read such polite responses. Therefore, one need be in no hurry to respond to a good-bye post, but netiquette does require a polite response within a reasonable time--perhaps the same span of time during which one would be expected to send something like a thank you note. Hence:

No, don't leave. We want you to stay. We all value your opinions and will miss your interesting posts.
