Lots of threads rehashing the same issues - just different wording. Lots of opinions - reasonable and fantastical and outright looney.
That is what I see in threads in the Political and Social Issues forums.
Here's one that I haven't seen.
A thank you! A thank you to all participants for providing an extremely enjoyable experience for me. Yep, this one is all about me.
I really enjoy forum conversations. Some are so nutty I can't participate without being condescendingly sarcastic - so I try to refrain. (not always successfully).
But... I spend 6 to 12 hours a day sitting in front of my screen writing code and content. And that can get very tedious after a while. Along comes 10pm and the rest of my household heads for bed, Now is my time.
Out comes 1.5, (or usually 2), Stolis' martinis, the ear buds, and a couple hours of good music - and Hubpages forum responses.
I get to state my opinions, argue that I am right, point our who is an idiot, or learn something new, (trust me, I really do appreciate the opportunity to learn something new, or correct an incorrect perception).
There are a half dozen names I would mention as prime participants in my thanks, but then I would probably miss, (and slight), another equally entertaining half dozen or so folks - so here is my toast to you....
Whether you are a nutcase I have to refrain from criticizing, a thoughtful perspective that differs from mine, or a member of the choir - thanks for participating in my threads, and allowing me to participate in yours.
Here's to a Hubpages forums salute... clink-clink...
ps. that wasn't just the Stolis talking....
I am very sorry to see your talent and fairness exit this arena. Having been here awhile I can't tell you what a breath of fresh air it is to see your avatar and name commenting on a subject as I know it will be of substance and good taste. I hope you reconsider after a short sabbatical as dialog and not wars are the best answer to the issues of the day.
I don't think Mr. Anderson was saying goodbye. Just thanks. Sounded to me like he likes it here and is planning to keep playing.
Slow down. That was just a thank you - not an exit.
But thanks for the kind words.

I have noticed that an increasing number of people seem to have joined this site merely to spam religion on the forum. This would be okay if it was not for the fact that this is a forum for writers, not theists.I am all for having a community forum, but I believe it should be a community forum for...
