Say I've made the decision to finish my last trade and then remove myself from the geek, should I delete my account or just stop using it? Apparently I annoy a quite a few people and I would hate for my annoying crap to continue to ruin their geek experience.

Not sure what I should do.

You forgot the third option, for us to tell you how wonderful you are and not to go. Which is obviously what you want.

I would appreciate it if you would leave your information up. You've contributed plenty of material that would be helpful to people, and I would hate to see that go.

That being said, I'd much prefer it if you stayed.

No, what you're doing is trying to get people to talk you down from the ledge, but I don't coddle attention whoring.

Actually, I don't believe that's true at all, because users who search and find answers usually don't post. IE, when the system works as intended, there's no evidence trail. Users come along, search for and find answers, and go on with their life, and you have no idea that they were ever there, or how many times it happened.

You only see the small percentage that don't search and post the same questions, or that happen to post a "thanks for this, I had the same question" in an old thread.

Given the millions that visit this site, and the small number of folks who post without searching, clearly the vast majority are finding what they want.

Please don't delete your account. It's obvious that you have been annoyed with things around here lately. It happens to all of us. Yes, it even happens to me. Take a break, that's all you need.

That and some sun....you know, being in Michigan and all.

So statistics and hidden information is the basis of your argument.


My statement is based solely on the visible rehashing of subjects.

Statics show that 36.8% of the time statistics are made up on the spot.


I am confused, is this from a different thread or something??

Dude, you need a serious chill pill man. Anything I said was in jest. Don't delete your account. C'mon now. As Jess said, take a break, it is a good idea from time to time.

ps,

I am sorry and I'll try and be a better friend

C'mon now holmes.

Admin note:

As a general reminder, users are always expected to express themselves in a courteous and respectful way. BGG policy is to issue a warning on a first offense and to follow future offenses with temporary posting suspensions of increasing length. Rather than responding to content that you find offensive, please consider flagging any offending posts as violations by using the icon. This serves two functions - first, if enough users flag a post then it will be collapsed from general view. Second, flagging posts helps bring them to the attention of the forum moderators.

Finally, in extreme circumstances you can hide all content posted by a user from your view by using the Hide User's Posts option in the menu found under the person's username. Please remember that making any public mention of who is on your Hide List is considered a zero tolerance offense.

Thanks!

Hear, hear.

For what it's worth, I'm sure there are plenty of other users like myself who rarely post outside of our own little BGG niches, but still enjoy your contributions across the site.

Why not just stop posting for a while.

Or stop logging in for a while and see how that feels?

Really, if you offended anyone, I totally missed that thread.
Of course, I don't generally read your stuff.
