    Hey Hubbers,

    I'm quickly approaching 30,000 posts to HubPages' forum thread and if you're really interested, you can help me leave even quicker?

    That's all you have to do is post to this forum and I'll respond. Once I reach 30,000 posts....*****POOF***** I'm gone.

    So, who is up for it?

    Last chance to get in your last digs....

    It's been fun. smile

      Well I honestly don't know what your talking about when you say this is part of your plan to move forward, nor do I believe you'd probably tell me if I asked you.  However, whatever your plan is, I will wish you the best of luck.

      It's a shame we had our differences in the past, as I would've liked to have become friends with you, but it seems we always ended up getting on each other's nerves more so than anything.  lollol Oh well. What can you do? I'll miss arguing with you Cags, and wish you the best of luck in whatever endeavors you have planned.

        This thread is part of the plan to reach 30,000 posts. Or did I not make that clear in my OP? If not, then I apologize for not being clearer.

        As for my future plans? Well, "CAGSIL" is a business that I need to take to the next level. Simply said, but not simply done.
        And there would be a reason for that and if I've not made that clear before now, which I'm pretty sure I have, then I guess I'll chalk it up the experience and knowledge I've gained, without knowing what you've managed to learn? Oh well, cannot win them all.
        I doubt you'll miss the arguing, because no one truly ever misses arguing, unless it was with someone extremely close to them, which we are not.

        I appreciate your wish of luck though. Thank you. smile

                Steven, I put that there, because I shouldn't have to explain it to you. The fact you don't get it, isn't a surprise, but like I said...oh well.

                  Cagsil, who asked you to explain anything to me?  I know I didn't.  If you think I did or implied it, then I'm sorry I didn't make that clearer then.  Plus, I don't even know which particular incident your referring to, as we have had a lot of debates and quarrels if I recall correctly.  Many of them over different subject matters.  Look, Cags, I don't know why you think I was posting on your forum originally, but I was just trying to wish you well, AND despite our previous differences, I always respected you.  That's all.  There's no need for petty insults and insinuations, buddy.  Sheesh.

                  Cagsil, a word of advice.  The next time a person says, in spite of our differences in the past, i'd like to wish you well, then just say thank you.  No, need for insults or to get mad.  Trust me, Cags, if I wanted to insult you, then I'd insult you okay.  lol  Anyways, I hope "Cagsil", as in your company, does well in business.  Happy Thanksgiving, pal. big_smile  lol

                  Edit:  You should consider writing a hub about your forum experiences Cagsil, to commemorate your departure.  I'm sure it would get a lot of hits.  smile

            I don't have that much time to waste anymore and I've already chosen 30,000 as my cut off, to begin other things.

            Having 100,000 posts isn't something to strive for either. hmm

    Hi Cagsil,

    I don't really know you, as I pretty much left here a bit over a year ago.

    I fully understand why you would want to leave.
    For me, this saying by Emo Phillips sums it up beautifully:

    "Some Days it just ain't worth gnawing through the straps"

    And when every day gets like that, then you start wondering why the hell you even bother posting here.


    regards,
    Eric G.

            Your second post is you talking to yourself. And, a lot could be said about that, but I'm not inclined to do so at this time. hmm

    This was a tricky thread, because of the wording of it, "Who wants to run me out....".  On the one hand, who would want to answer and be among those contributing to Cagsil's 30,000.  On the other, who would want to think Cagsil (who so often tries/tried to be helpful to others on here) was leaving without wishing good luck?

    Cagsil, hope you just went to sleep out there in Western Massachusetts, and that mine wasn't the post that made your 30,000 and caused "poof"!!  That's what I'm hoping anyway.  What a dilemma you posed for people on here!  Maybe if you're back tomorrow, working on your 30,000, you could post a new thread, like, "Who wants to say something to me, since my aim of 30,000 posts is only xx posts away"?  For the record, I sure hope my reply to your thread was not Number 30,000.   hmm

    Wow, after reading all these comments (and mine) it looks like
    Cagsil, Cags, Ray, is one of the most liked here on HP
    by nonbelievers and believers as well.

    Simply for his personality.......OH personality goes far beyond anything else
    The sarcasm
    The jokes
    But it's time to turn off the remote

    Yes I feel the same, spending more time outdoors
    Would be a source of joy and getting the chance to explore

    I think we're addicted to the snappy and challenging
    remarks

    But ...there is still his profile smile
    Oh, why do we falter
    and speak with such devotion?
    He must have hypnotised up
    With one of his potions

    We cannot bid farewell
    Until you ......

    this thread goes on forever
    Why oh Why

    Let go and let God
    One day at a time
    This is silly I know
    But it does have a rhyme

    His comments somehow are
    food to our souls
    Perhaps he's writing a book

    New Beginnings
    by Gertrude B. McClain
     
    It's only the beginning now
    ...a pathway yet unknown
    At times the sound of other steps
    ...sometimes we walk alone

    The best beginnings of our lives
    May sometimes end in sorrow
    But even on our darkest days
    The sun will shine tomorrow.

    So we must do our very best
    Whatever life may bring
    And look beyond the winter chill
    To smell the breath of spring.

    Into each life will always come
    A time to start anew
    A new beginning for each heart
    As fresh as morning dew.

    Although the cares of life are great
    And hands are bowed so low
    The storms of life will leave behind
    The wonder of a rainbow.

    The years will never take away
    Our chance to start anew
    It's only the beginning now
    So dreams can still come true.

    Cags, you know as well as I do that the forums are a better place with you in them. I suspect that you will reinvent yourself and come back as a new you. At least I hope you will... smile

      Thank you Irohner for your kind words and compliment. I've re-invented myself in my life, so far once in my life and I'm not planned on changing myself again. wink smile
