I’ve gotten to know a lot of you here and over on ARF, many of whom have become personal friends. I have a terminal case of Hide Addiction, and appreciate Frank’s work keeping this site together — I know it couldn’t have been easy all these years.

It seems like things are becoming more toxic to the point where some of my longtime friends have been virtually bloodied for one reason or another, so I’m going to depart as “gracefully” as possible before I irrevocably push someone’s hot button and get shown the door in acrimonious fashion.

It has been a great privilege, brothers. Be good to each other and God bless.

    I can respect this,

    gracious, leaving on his own, vs asking someone to leave, explaining they are not welcome here and then having them come back online to push the limits and see how far they can push you.

    I get it, but also, I have receipts, not to worry though, a revamp of the site would not be complete without a revamp of the NV section too

    PS, before I go to feed the dog,

    Do your friends really think you can effect my numbers by asking a few people not to visit anymore ?

    I find it rather funny people think a few random members move the needle to any noticeable degree, weird. Someone always fills the gaps, ask me how I know.

    Just wondering out loud, kinda like holding your breath until I pass out if you ask me ...

    End of the Day I don't like bullies... so, later.

    Nate apparently we missed a shit show today. Someone just read me in to the commentary... everyone needs to stop taking themselves so seriously on here. It’s Frank’s house guys. His rules. Respect them or GTFO. We are grown men, we are this community together, we should be building each other up (especially in times like these where they’re is so much divide in the world) stop tearing each other down, be productive members of the community . If you don’t wanna stick around. Leave. No need for drama posts. Let’s not feed into it.

    People come, people go. After a time, you are forgotten like you were never even a part. Writing a forum suicide note is cute, but in the end we just shrug our shoulders and say. Okay? Bye? Like Frank said. It effects nothing.

    I don’t know anything about what’s going on....

    But I think I’ll be the only one left running MOA here 😞

    Don’t tell these guys MRAD is the Metric (Better) system. They will grandstand about the moon and that’s when the “Flat Earth guys fight the Aliens are Real guys”

    I always wonder how these little internet discussiions and conflicts would play out in person, over drinks.

    I dont know any of you personally but you seem like decent folks.

    Typing into a screen can take the humanity out of a discussion. Its easy to cross lines, offend people, get offended, over react, disregarding others perspectives and generally not give a fuck. Nobody is perfect and the internet allows us to be the most imperfect egotistical assholes.

    Anyways, @TheHorta been a pleasure. Sorry to see you go.

    In a case like this, I think a man should simply be taken at his word;

    "It has been a great privilege, brothers. Be good to each other and God bless".

    Best of luck to you in the future and the door is always open should you choose to come back. ;) :cool:


    Im guessing "back door"?

    As I told some of the kids that used to work for me, if you think you'll be missed when you retire, quit, whatever. Just imagine a bucket of water with your finger in it, then pull your finger straight up and see what happens. That's how much affect your leaving will have on anything, a very small ripple and you're gone. Replaced before you know it, a few people will tell a story or two about you, then you're forgotten all together. If you think you're anything more than that, you're kidding yourself.
