Well you don't have to leave, but I can understand how this forum can be addictive. It's 3:30 am here and I'm writing a reply to a thread on here. In fact, my addiction is kind of the reason I stopped posting in the first place (and came back earlier this year), though I didn't do a "I'm leaving" thread because I had every intention of coming back. It's a horrible source of procrastination as I could be doing something constructive like sleeping.
Obviously, I don't know why you've made the choice. I could make a few guesses (though you can correct me if wrong) - I know you've had a couple of clashes where you might not have wanted it and this forum is pretty intense and strict when it comes to accountability and there's can even be a high level of criticism. If it's anything to do with any of that and you'd rather not spend time subjecting yourself to that, then I understand. This forum's methods don't work for everyone.
It was actually kind of the point of the experimentation with The Shelter - though obviously we don't want theists to only post in there, but it makes for a spot where you can have a more relaxed discussion on religion without the intensity people are subject to elsewhere. We actually subject each other to same level of accountability, employ the same level of sarcasm and the same level of scrutiny when we find ourselves disagreeing on a subject. Normally, we know how to handle ourselves in those discussions. In fact, I love it, I find it's an excellent way of learning things quickly.
However, I think we've had a good laugh and the fact you've got more positive karma than me should at least say something.
Christ, I've been a member for 4 years. Okay, the karma system didn't exist for most of that period, but that's beside the point
Well best of luck with your wrist and future cycling endeavours (preferably not injuring yourself again). And er...best of luck with the Cricket whenever it's on, I don't like the sport, so I have absolutely no issue in you Australians kicking our arse.
