I want to apologise to everyone, and Cheese Moose in particular, for flying off the handle. I was upset, but should have held my tongue until sanity prevailed, again.
I realise, now, that Cheese Moose meant no harm, and was surprised by the response he got. Sorry, Cheese.

I love kibbitzing on the forum, and love it when someone picks up on what I'm doing. I really love it when they join in. Great validation, when you can get it. But, with so many people in the forum, getting attention is hit or miss, at best. But to the best of my knowledge, no one has actually objected. When I thought someone had, it was the straw that broke the camel's back...

And, there were other circumstances, that made me a bit sensitive, to begin with. I won't go into them... suffice it to say, I've been feeling a bit unappreciated, and unloved, lately. And, When I'm feeling down, I create. It's how I cope.

I think it was the term, "Spamming" that really set me off. To me, Spam is something worthless masquerading as something useful, something irritating masquerading as something Welcome. In short, not only something no one could love, but an imposter, as well. I hate Spam, and spamming, and in the context of the forums, it's one of the worst things you can say about another member... That's how I feel, anyway...

Anyway, I feel embarrased that you all had to witness my little meltdown, and profusely apologise... and I thank all of you who PM'd with words of wisdom, and support. Thanks.

After talking to Quoth over PM, I have returned to write this. I would just like to say that Quoth is not the reason I have left. There were other RL issues which I don't really want to go into now.

Bye Guys

I dunno about that. Calling someone a 'troll' would perhaps be worse. There are different types of spam in my eyes. For example, I consider the entire of the 'Daft' folder to be nothing more than spam, since many of the games within it would be banned on other forums on account of being labelled Spam.

Heck, by that definition, most of what I've done in these forums qualifies as Spam... wow, now I'm confused... laugh.gif
